Sediments a likely culprit in spread of deadly disease on Florida coral reefs

New findings also point to coastal construction as potential way of further spreading coral disease. A new study found that seafloor sediments have the potential to transmit a deadly pathogen…

Researchers simulate SARS-COV-2 transmission and infection on airline flights

A study published in Indoor Air simulated the transmission of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, on a flight from London to Hanoi and on another flight from Singapore to…

Research team publishes new, precise COVID-“epidemometer”

Young research team publishes new method for accurate prediction of epidemic dynamics. Country comparisons included. The COVID-19 pandemic still poses major challenges in crisis management to governments and health systems….

Measure eye movements when blinking

Scientists from the University of Münster have developed a method to measure the full extent of eye movements during blinks for the first time. The new method uses Magnetic Resonance…

Study reveals more hostile conditions on Earth as life evolved 

During long portions of the past 2.4 billion years, the Earth may have been more  inhospitable to life than scientists previously thought, according to new computer simulations. Using a state-of-the-art climate model, researchers now believe…

‘Photosynthetic’ algae can survive the dark

More than 66 million years ago, an asteroid impact led to the extinction of almost three-quarters of life on Earth. The little life that was left had to struggle, and…

Grip or slip; robots need a human sense of touch

The long-term effects of sepsis: years of treatment and care needs

Three in four sepsis survivors experience new-onset memory problems, psychological impairments or physical diagnoses. This also applies to more than half of sepsis survivors under the age of 40 at…

Creating good friction: Pitt engineers aim to make floors less slippery

Swanson School collaborators Kurt Beschorner and Tevis Jacobs will use a NIOSH award to measure floor-surface topography and create a predictive model of friction. Friction is the resistance to motion…

Study introduces framework to understand new class of curved lattice materials

A new study from Swansea University has introduced a framework to calculate the material properties of a new class of two-dimensional curved hexagonal lattices that could be used in the…
