A new vaccine adjuvant, which helps stimulate the immune system, has been developed based on two chemicals that are produced by the body.
Peatlands are among the most valuable ecosystems on Earth but when damaged are a major source of greenhouse gas emissions.
The Swansea-based materials physicist talks about the role of energy materials in mitigating climate change, his love of sports, and how his passion for science helps it to blend seamlessly into his life.
New hybrid optical fibers contain 2D materials that enhance light-matter interactions and open doors for a range of new technological advancements.
For the first time, two women share the Nobel prize for chemistry. Their work with CRISPR helped usher in a new generation of precision genome editing.
No formal scientific education, a single mother, author of 103 scientific papers, the first person to see a corona virus, June Almeida was a tour de force.

How can we overcome bullying within academia?
Celebrating “10 years of Advanced Energy Materials Research,” we chatted with Stefano Passerini, Director of the HIU about his career, concerning trends in battery science, and how Dante has influenced his development.
Some species of butterfly rely on shade to regulate their body temperature when it gets too hot.
Whilst large-scale volcanic activity has been responsible for huge temperature rises millions of years ago, human-made climate change is happening at a far faster rate.
An extensive study shows that the fragile Arctic landscape is changing right before our eyes. While we cannot stop the transformation, we can mitigate its effects if we reduce greenhouse gas emissions and slow climate change.
While superconductors are not considered an energy material, the energy savings arising from resistance-free transmission and distribution of electricity are potentially massive when considered on a global scale.
