Research brings us closer to creating prosethic limbs that recreate a sense of touch
A newly developed spectroscopy method is helping to clarify the poorly understood molecular process by which an anti-HIV drug induces lethal mutations in the virus’ genetic material. The findings from the University of Chicago and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology could bolster efforts to develop the next generation of anti-viral treatments.
Science, technology, engineering and mathematics schools vary in many ways, but they share eight major common elements. So finds a nationwide study of 23 STEM schools conducted by the University of Chicago’s Outlier Research & Evaluation group.
University of Chicago to establish Genomic Data Commons.
For three years, the Beagle supercomputer has driven University of Chicago biology and medical research into new computational territories, fueling groundbreaking research in genomics, drug design, and personalized medicine. Now, with a $2 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, UChicago’s high-performance computing resource for biomedical research is ready for an upgrade that will enable the next wave of pioneering discoveries.
Completing tasks and crossing them off the ubiquitous "to-do" list is a great feeling. But what about those nagging tasks we keep putting off? What’s the difference between those jobs that get completed and those that do not?
One wish many workers may have following this Labor Day is for more control and predictability of their work schedules. A new report finds that unpredictability is widespread in many workers’ schedules—one reason why organized labor groups and policymakers are now focusing on work schedule reform.
New Fermilab experiment will test the nature of the universe.
