Israeli and American Researchers Have Successfully Curbed Mesothelioma in Model Animals

American Technion Society

A team led by researchers from the Technion and NYU Langone has successfully impeded the development of mesothelioma - a disease for which there is currently no effective treatment. Mesothelioma, a cancer that develops in the thin membrane that protects the internal organs of the chest and abdomen, is in most cases caused by exposure to asbestos.

How a Cell Knows When To Divide

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI)

How does a cell know when to divide? We know that hundreds of genes contribute to a wave of activity linked to cell division, but to generate that wave new research shows that cells must first grow large enough to produce four key proteins in adequate amounts.

Columbia Researchers Squeeze Light into Nanoscale Devices and Circuits

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Columbia investigators have made a major breakthrough in nanophotonics research, with their invention of a novel “home-built” cryogenic near-field optical microscope that has enabled them to directly image, for the first time, the propagation and dynamics of graphene plasmons at variable temperatures down to negative 250 degrees Celsius. If researchers can harness this nanolight, they will be able to improve sensing, subwavelength waveguiding, and optical transmission of signals.
