Groundbreaking research produces record levels of strain in single-crystal silicon, which could lead to phones with smoke detector technology

Researchers at the University of Surrey have developed a one-step procedure to subject monocrystalline silicon to greater stress than before. This pending patent discovery could be key to the future development of silicon photonics, which supports technologies behind the Internet of Things and is currently limited by the lack of cheap, efficient and easily integrated … Read more

Key Molecule Identified That May Lead to New Treatments for COVID

Researchers from the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering examined the Nsp13 protein, which is involved in the COVID virus replication process. Studies by the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering hope to find drugs that work against the variants. Many treatments for COVID-19 focus on the spiky protein that the virus uses to bind to human … Read more

Common cold may protect against SARS-CoV-2 infection and lead the way…

.The common cold can have some protective benefits against coronavirus infection. Camilo Fuentes Beals / EyeEm / Getty Images Some people are less susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection. A new study suggests that T cells from previous coronavirus infection, such as the common cold, may protect against SARS-CoV-2. These T cells target the internal SARS-CoV-2 proteins. … Read more

Poisoning From Lead Ammunition Is Stunting Bald Eagle Rebound

Bald eagle populations have slowly recovered from near devastation after the government banned DDT in 1972, but another ongoing problem has weakened that recovery – lead ammunition poisoning. A new study, published in Journal of Wildlife Management, reveals that despite the growing number of bald eagles, poisoning from eating dead corpses or parts contaminated with … Read more
