UCLA Program Aims to Revolutionize Kidney Transplants

New and innovative programs to obtain donor organs have the potential to revolutionize kidney transplantation. At UCLA, for example, transplant experts are studying a program they call "living donor swap." This program enables the relative or friend of a kidney-transplant patient who is not compatible as a donor to "swap" organs with another potential donor who also may be an incompatible match for his or her relative or friend. This greatly broadens the pool of organs available from living donors.

Physicist Takes a Trip to Nuclear 'Island of Inversion'

Far from the everyday world occupied by such common elements such as gold and lead lies a little-understood realm inhabited by radioactive, or unstable, elements. Recently, a nuclear physicist from Florida State University collaborated with other scientists from the United States, Japan and England in an experiment that illustrated how the "normal" rules of physics don't apply for some of these radioactive elements.
