Earlier this month, it was announced that Hopkins would use a $50 million gift from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to create the Sheikh Khalifa Stroke Institute. The Institute aims to expand upon the University’s past successes in neurology and neurosurgery while relying on the University’s experience in fields ranging from biomedical engineering to psychology.
Characterized by the branch-like projections from its neck and named after the Aztec god Xolotl of lightning and death, the axolotl (pronounced ACK-suh-LAH-tuhl) is probably the most scientifically studied salamander in the world, according to National Geographic.
Staring up at the heavens is something all humans, whether a thousand years ago or today, have done. Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Charles Bennett, an experimental cosmologist and recent recipient of the Breakthrough Prize, looks at space with the same fascination, harnessing the power of science and engineering to understand the universe’s deepest secrets.
While many may be concerned and skeptical about the effectiveness of environmental protection policies under the Trump administration, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently took a huge step forward by finally ordering the clean up of a Superfund nuclear waste site in Missouri.
Some say science fiction predicts future technology. Others say science fiction itself shapes technology by creating visions of the future. Either way, one feature of futuristic fiction has been conspicuously absent in recent technology — 3D holographic images.
After years of research, scientists at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) and Thomas Jefferson University came up with a device that improves the brain’s ability to store memories.
In a study published earlier this month in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), researchers found that the prevalence of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) may be up to five times as great as previously estimated.
Researchers in the United States and in Taiwan have found a potential correlation between chronic diseases and cancer risk. In this study, Chi-Pang Wen, a professor at the National Health Research Institutes in Zhunan, Taiwan, and his team have suggested that chronic diseases and markers should be taken into account while studying cancer development and mortality.
iOS Source Code Leaked on GitHub On Wednesday, Apple requested that GitHub remove leaked iOS source code. The leak, which Jonathan Levin, an author of several books on iOS, called Apple’s biggest leak in history, was confirmed by Motherboard to be stolen by a former Apple intern in 2016.
Functions in the body are commonly interconnected, but many of them often have unusual connective networks. Recently researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences discovered that cells responsible for detecting sour foods are functionally connected to the vestibular system in the ear.
Scientists at the University of New South Wales have found that using climate engineering to modify the surface of the land in crowded urban areas and in areas of agricultural growth in North America, Asia and Europe has yielded promising results, reducing extreme temperatures by two to three degrees Celsius (about four to five degrees Fahrenheit).
From science-fiction movies to Area 51 myths, it is very apparent that modern society holds a deep interest in what lies beyond the limits of the earth — more specifically, the possibility of life on other planets. A recent study from the University of Washington has claimed that looking for a chemical disequilibrium that occurs in atmospheres may be key in detecting planets with extraterrestrial life.
On Jan. 24 earlier this year, a paper published in the journal Cell described the successful cloning of two macaque monkeys at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Neuroscience in Shanghai.
Trisomy 21, also known as Down syndrome, is one of the most well-known forms of genetic conditions. The incidence of trisomy 21 is one in 700 live births. Normally, healthy people are born with two copies of each of their 23 sets of chromosomes. However, people who have trisomy 21 are born with an additional, abnormal copy of chromosome 21.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) predicted that this year’s flu will be the worst in almost 10 years. Flu season usually begins in the fall and continues into the winter. The exact reason for the spread of the virus from October to May is unclear.
Traumatic-brain injuries (TBI) is a leading cause of death and disability in the United States. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there were about 2.8 million TBI related visits, hospitalizations and deaths, contributing to nearly 50,000 deaths.
In this feature, we explore how space science research has been and still is associated with both absurdity and great power competition. We delve into the roots of rocketry in war, the space race between the U.S. and the USSR, and what some consider to be the beginnings of a second space race between the U.S. and China.
Researchers at the Gladstone Institutes in San Francisco, Calif. have discovered a new way to make induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) by manipulating the genome of skin cells using CRISPR techniques.
As college students, Hopkins students know all too well how dreadful — and how easy — it is to contract some sort of virus, one that will keep you up all night coughing your lungs out or force your runny nose through two full boxes of tissues a day.
