Nan Liu, research assistant professor of physics in Arts & Sciences, is first author of a new study in The Astrophysical Journal Letters that analyzes a diverse set of presolar grains with the goal of realizing their true stellar origins.
Islands are hot spots of evolutionary adaptation that can also advantage species returning to the mainland, according to a study led by biologist Jonathan Losos in Arts & Sciences, published the week of Oct. 11 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
New research from the laboratory of Jonathan Losos begins to unravel one of the major mysteries of invasion biology: why animals that tend not to hybridize in their native range abandon their inhibitions when they spread into a new land. The study is published the week of Oct. 11 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
As artificial intelligence becomes more incorporated into the medical field, rigorous evaluation of these methods is needed before they are introduced into clinical practice, a team led by Washington University researchers Abhinav Jha and Barry Siegel, MD, proposed.
A lunar probe launched by the Chinese space agency recently brought back the first fresh samples of rock and debris from the moon in more than 40 years. Now an international team of scientists, including Bradley Jolliff in Arts & Sciences, has determined the age of these moon rocks at close to 1.97 billion years old.
Richard Loomis, professor of chemistry in Arts & Sciences, received a three-year $700,000 grant, with a collaborator at Marquette University, from the National Science Foundation to study highly energized molecules’ reaction pathways.
A team in the lab of Vijay Ramani at the McKelvey School of Engineering has developed a catalyst that can be used to both generate fuel and provide power.
McKelvey School of Engineering graduate student Garrett Roell has been accepted into the Office of Science Graduate Student Research program, a prestigious research opportunity funded by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science.
Neuroscientists in Arts & Sciences discovered that the daily release of hormones depends on the coordinated activity of clocks in two parts of the brain, a finding that could have implications for human diseases.
Sarah Anderson, a postdoctoral research associate in biology in Arts & Sciences, won the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a three-year fellowship valued at about $200,000.
