SLAS2016 Keynote Speaker: Making Cancer History
SLAS    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Michael Gottesman, NIH deputy director for intramural research, reviewed the impactful PBS documentary, "Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies," in The NIH Catalyst Newsletter last month. Documentary viewers, he says, "may have noticed how closely the history of cancer advances parallels the history of the NIH intramural research program. From combination chemotherapy for lymphoma and leukemia, through the discovery of virus vectors and the development of vaccines, to immunotherapy and the promise of personalized medicine, that was us making cancer history." Learn more about these advances when Gottesman addresses SLAS2016 participants Monday, Jan. 25, at SLAS2016 in San Diego. More

New Tools Developed to Study Protein Formation
Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While we may be in the midst of the genomic era, being able to sequence genomes at speeds only rivaled by the molecular machinery used to create the genetic information, understanding the actions of protein molecules that execute the tasks encoded by our DNA blueprint is paramount to unlocking how cells behave — and often at times malfunction.

Chemists Demonstrate New Feats Of Hydroamination
Chemical & Engineering News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In a showcase of metal hydride catalysis, two research groups have developed reactions to transform simple unsaturated building blocks — alkenes and alkynes — into valuable chiral amine products. More

Simple Reaction Shows Quantum Interference
Royal Society of Chemistry    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Chemical reactions are often regarded as rearrangements in the bonding patterns of billiard-ball-like atoms. But by studying one of the simplest reactions conceivable, a team from Spain and the U.S. has found that the quantum nature of the atoms can affect the outcome in a profound way. They report that different reaction pathways can interfere with one another like quantum particles in the famous double-slit experiment, producing a series of sharp peaks in the distribution of reaction products exiting from the molecular collisions at different angles.

Researchers Observe And Control Light Wakes For The First Time
Harvard University via ScienceDaily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
For the first time, Harvard researchers have created wakes of light-like waves moving on a metallic surface, called surface plasmons, and demonstrated that they can be controlled and steered. The creation and control of surface plasmon wakes could lead to new types of plasmonic couplers and lenses that could create two-dimensional holograms or focus light at the nanoscale. More


The Role Of Species Competition In Biodiversity    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Over long spans, biodiversity is a fluid and shifting balance of species and influences. Species diversification occurs in response to a host of complex factors, both biotic and abiotic, and understanding them is a major challenge of evolutionary biology. More

Roses Produce Their Sweet Scent Through An Unexpected Route
Chemical & Engineering News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Taking the time to stop and smell the roses can help you appreciate the simple beauty of life. Recently, a team of French researchers took the time to uncover how roses produce these sweet odors, and found that the plants do so through an unexpected route. The findings could help rose breeders develop flowers with more powerful scents. More

University of Queensland via ScienceDaily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Pain treatment researchers have discovered thousands of new peptide toxins hidden deep within the venom of just one type of Queensland cone snail. Researchers hope the new molecules will be promising leads for new drugs to treat pain and cancer. More

Engineers Give Invisibility Cloaks A Slimmer Design
University of California, San Diego via    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Researchers have developed a new design for a cloaking device that overcomes some of the limitations of existing "invisibility cloaks." In a new study, electrical engineers at the University of California, San Diego have designed a cloaking device that is both thin and does not alter the brightness of light around a hidden object. The technology behind this cloak will have more applications than invisibility, such as concentrating solar energy and increasing signal speed in optical communications. More
