New Spanish-Language Videos and Brochures Provide Cancer Patients with Overview of Radiation Therapy

Cancer patients who speak Spanish have new tools to help them understand treatment options for their disease. The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) today released a series of Spanish-language patient videos on radiation therapy for cancer, including breast, prostate, lung, brain and other common cancer types. The videos complement a set of Spanish-language brochures on radiation therapy that ASTRO released earlier this year.

Can Early Experiences with Computers, Robots Increase STEM Interest Among Young Girls?

Girls start believing they aren't good at math, science and even computers at a young age — but providing fun STEM activities at school and home may spark interest and inspire confidence. A study from the University of Washington's Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences (I-LABS) finds that, when exposed to a computer-programming activity, 6-year-old girls expressed greater interest in technology and more positive attitudes about their own skills and abilities than girls who didn't try the activity.

Stem Cells Edited to Fight Arthritis

Using CRISPR technology, a team of researchers led by Farshid Guilak, PhD, at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, rewired stem cells' genetic circuits to produce an anti-inflammatory arthritis drug when the cells encounter inflammation. The technique eventually could act as a vaccine for arthritis and other chronic conditions.

Video Captures Bubble-Blowing Battery in Action

PNNL researchers have created a unique video that shows oxygen bubbles inflating and later deflating inside a tiny lithium-air battery. The knowledge gained from the video could help make lithium-air batteries that are more compact, stable and can hold onto a charge longer.

‘Ageless’ Silicon Throughout Milky Way May Indicate a Well-Mixed Galaxy

New surveys with the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Green Bank Telescope (GBT) in West Virginia, of the element silicon may mean that the Milky Way is more efficient at mixing its contents than previously thought, thereby masking the telltale signs of chemical aging.
