Meet a Scientist

When scientists take off the googles and lab coats, they can be amusing and inspiring storytellers. These short videos are part of initiative to persuade Washington University in St. Louis scientists talk about being scientists with the hope that their stories will amuse and inspire.

UF Receives Up to $8.4 Million From DoD to Study Brain Training Using Electric Stimulation

The U.S. Defense Department is looking for ways to speed up cognitive skills training — the types of skills useful for specialists such as linguists, intelligence analysts and cryptographers — and is awarding University of Florida engineers and neuroscientists up to $8.4 million over the next four years to investigate how to do that by applying electrical stimulation to peripheral nerves as a means of strengthening neuronal connections in the brain.

Where Scientist Meets Machine: A Fresh Approach to Experimental Design at SLAC X-Ray Laser

2017_0320_2017_0320_Paul_Fuoss_Portrait-14217.jpg

Big leaps in technology require big leaps in design ­– entirely new approaches that can take full advantage of everything the technology has to offer. That’s the thinking behind a new initiative at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

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.

Can Aromatherapy Calm Competition Horses?

Although studies suggest that inhaling certain scents may reduce stress in humans, aromatherapy is relatively unexplored in veterinary medicine. But new research presented today at the American Physiological Society (APS) annual meeting at Experimental Biology 2017 in Chicago raises the question of whether aromatherapy may be beneficial to horses as well.

Possible New Tool for First Responders: An Ice Bag to the Face

Cardiovascular decompensation is a significant risk after blood loss, even once the person is no longer actively bleeding. Applying a bag of ice to a person’s forehead could help prevent this life-threatening complication while patients are being transported to the hospital.

BioSNTR researchers are investigating how antibodies recognize their targets, activate immune cells and clear influenza from the body. What they learn will result in technologies that biotechnology companies can use to evaluate the effectiveness of their antibody therapeutics.
