Discovery of naturally chiral surfaces for safer pharmaceuticals

In the 1960s, the sedative thalidomide was widely popular as one of the only non-barbiturate, over-the-counter sleep-aids on the market. When doctors started noticing that it also helped alleviate morning sickness in pregnant ...

Calcium helps build strong cells

Every time you flex your bicep or stretch your calf muscle, you put your cells under stress. Every move we make throughout the day causes our cells to stretch and deform. But this cellular deformation can be dangerous, and ...

Prescribed burns may introduce new atmospheric toxins

In many of the world's forested regions, wildfires are an unavoidable fact of life. From the forests of Portugal, to the woods of California, to the recent devastation of the Australian bushfires, widespread fires are often ...

Salting down the cost of protein polymer drugs

Protein is big business. Not only does it make up a significant portion of every living thing—it's also a $150 billion per-year industry. Whether for food, medicine, or manufacturing, nearly all sectors have a need for ...

Could US wildfires be contributing to heart disease?

The destructive force of wildfires in the U.S. is well documented. Every year, on both the east and west coasts of the country, and due to both environmental and man-made factors, fires rage, and homes and habitats are destroyed. ...

Accelerating electrocatalyst discovery

Researchers are paving the way to total reliance on renewable energy as they study both large- and small-scale ways to replace fossil fuels. One promising avenue is converting simple chemicals into valuable ones using renewable ...
