The 2017 Fall Meeting of the Materials Research Society (MRS) took place in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, from November 26 – December 1. This year’s conference featured 55 technical symposia, eleven tutorial sessions, four poster sessions, and 241 exhibitors. The...
A marking protocol is developed in which nanogels are used as a smart biocompatible ink. These interactive markers offer new solutions for security and traceability applications.
Protein Science has published a Special Issue on Tools for Protein Science edited by Brian Matthews from the University of Oregon. Data analysis in life and physical sciences has come a long way since the development of high-power, high-speed computers, and computer...
In their review in BioEssays, Shoi Shi and Hiroki Ueda review recent studies on sleep duration and homeostasis.
Dual-contrast MRI for real time monitoring of transplanted stem cell delivery, migration and death.
The recent academic progresses as made on the three major themes regarding preparations, characteristics and applications of liquid metal materials are reviewed.
A new biomimetic strategy provides a platform for the synthesis of ligand-targeted nanovesicles that can mediate selective drug delivery to specific tissues.
A new concept to solve the ductility problem of SPD-processed magnesium alloys was examined by using a ZK60 magnesium alloy processed by high-pressure torsion to obtain an HSHD material.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers introduce a new 3D printing strategy that overcomes the limitations of direct ink writing. Structures can be printed in six different modes, and can even be printed to have different kinetic properties.

A highly stretchable, transparent, conductive entangled graphene mesh network (EGMN) is developed by a team researchers at Yonsei University, South Korea. The device is mechanically durable, and electrically and thermally stable, even in harsh environmental conditions.
This work illustrates the importance and utility of considering the geometry and arrangement of the components of a composite material in addition to the properties of the component materials and shows how simply the design of the architecture can lead to accessing new desirable combinations of properties.
