A new in vitro model of the body’s immune system better predicts its response to new therapeutics, potentially lowering the high costs and low success rates of drug discovery.
Researchers have created a fast-charging battery prototype that uses sodium instead of lithium, and macrocycles to store the chemical energy.
Advanced Science News takes a look at some of the prettiest pictures researchers published in April 2020.
Imagine how these two planes – the world of machines and the world of human systems – will work synergistically to realize the potential of new materials and the systems into which they will be integrated.
This edition of Pioneers in Science celebrates physicist Wilhelm Röntgen, winner of the 1901 Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery of “a new kind of ray”.
Researchers use hot water and pressure to circumvent the need to use toxic chemicals in the production of organic plastics.
Desalinating water to meet the world’s growing water demands may be feasible using solar energy.
This year, April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, a grassroots idea from the 1970s that became a global movement.
What constitutes novelty and importance and meeting the criteria of top-tier journals? Maybe we need to rethink how and where we showcase our breakthroughs…
Researchers at the University of Munich have demonstrated a conceptually novel nanocarrier strategy in which the nanoparticles are both the cargo and the carrier.
Using a micro-3D-printing technique, researchers were able to print detailed robotic parts that are smaller than the diameter of a human hair and display color-expressing features for microrobot tracking and identification.
A nanocarrier that can deliver siRNA into the lungs is investigated for the treatment of severe asthma and other lung diseases.
