Red bricks — some of the world’s cheapest and most familiar building materials — can be converted into energy storage units that can be charged to hold electricity, like a battery, according to new research from chemists in Arts & Sciences.
Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis are developing a method to diagnose brain tumors using ultrasonic energy — and no incisions. Lead researcher Hong Chen has received $2.5 million from the NIH to pursue further study.
A study from the Department of Psychological & Brain Sciences in Arts & Sciences adds nuance to the idea that an aging memory is a poor one and finds a potential correlation between the way people process the boundaries of events and episodic memory.
A new algorithm developed in the lab of Jr-Shin Li at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis provides a framework for solving complex linear inverse problems that doesn’t require a supercomputer and also enhances security and privacy.
Older male rhesus monkeys sire fewer offspring. Sperm quality or quantity, or the survival of infants, may decline with the age of the would-be father, a new study from biological anthropologist Krista Milich in Arts & Sciences suggests.
Research from a multidisciplinary team led by Washington University in St. Louis may provide new insights into wound healing, fibrosis and cancer metastasis.
A holographic display developed by researchers at Washington University in St. Louis improves physician accuracy when performing a procedure to treat irregular heartbeat.
Modeling from the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis shows how social distancing could have better been implemented. The key? Longer periods of distancing would have helped — but only to a point. More needed to be done.
Nearly 240 scientists signed onto a letter urging the World Health Organization to recognize the airborne spread of COVID-19. Here’s what a signatory from Washington University in St. Louis has to say.
Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis have found that a neural model based on the act of a bug smelling something showed emergent properties, properties similar to those seen in an insect’s antennal lobe, an important area for its sense of smell.
