Inspired by a musical instrument, the simple sensor can be constructed from common materials and used to detect adulterated or counterfeit drugs
Project to embed patient data directly in biological samples receives Gates Foundation funding
Scientists use molecular dipoles to accelerate electron transfer in one direction and completely suppress it in the other. This “holy grail” of energy science could hasten the design of new and superb energy and electronic materials
Donovan Argueta, a first-generation college graduate at the University of California, Riverside, has won a Ford Foundation 2018 Dissertation Fellowship. The $25,000 fellowship begins June 1, 2018. As a fellow, Argueta will receive additional support to attend an annual conference of the Ford Foundation fellows this fall. The mission of...
