As the population ages and obesity and diabetes increase, more people suffer from noncardiac vascular diseases. In the July/August issue of Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases, published by Elsevier, a series of articles from recognized experts on key topics in vascular disease and endovascular medicine provide an insightful compendium of the evidence available to help improve the care of this complex patient population.
"Over the past decade, interest in the management of patients with noncardiac vascular disease has exploded," commented guest editors Christopher J. White, MD, The John Ochsner Heart & Vascular Institute, Ochsner Clinical Foundation, New Orleans, LA, and Michael R. Jaff, DO, Massachusetts General Hospital Vascular Center, Boston, MA. "There are several potential explanations for this, including the aging population, the increasing prevalence of diabetes mellitus and obesity, rapidly evolving endovascular technologies, and increasing interest among vascular specialists to perform cutting-edge, minimally invasive procedures. Despite this interest, the literature remains devoid of many high-level scientific studies aiding the clinician in the practice of evidence-based vascular medicine. This issue of Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases was developed to provide an up-to-date summary of the most recent evidence by expert clinicians in vascular and endovascular medicine."
"This timely symposium offers the clinical cardiologist much needed access to the latest developments and capacities in an arena that is expanding rapidly and will continue to do so," stated Editor-in-Chief Henry Greenberg, MD, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital, New York, NY,

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
