The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has awarded a new STEM designation for two master's programs in architecture at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). UTSA is now the only Texas institution -- and one of few universities in the nation--to have STEM CIP Code 04.0902 for its M. Arch. and M.S. in Architecture programs.
The big Chinese fine chemical company Zhejiang NHU invest €5.5 million in the biotech start-up CysBio to develop new and affordable biochemicals.
Professor Andreas Schütze and his team of experts in measurement and sensor technology at Saarland University are making available a free data processing tool that represents the very essence of a large number of their research projects. The software package -- called simply 'Dave' -- is a MATLAB toolbox that allows rapid evaluation of signals, pattern recognition and data visualization when processing huge datasets.
Genetesis, a medical technology company focused on using biomagnetic imaging to enable rapid, noninvasive and accurate chest pain triage, has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its cardiac imaging platform. The platform pairs the CardioFlux™ Magnetocardiograph with the integrated Faraday Analytical Cloud™ (FAC).
Genetic analysis provides objective data for recruiters filling complex jobs.
A trial of an experimental drug designed to treat cravings associated with opioid use disorder (OUD) has begun at the National Institutes of Health. The trial will assess the safety and pharmacokinetics of ANS-6637 when given with another drug that is processed by the same liver enzyme pathway. Trial funding is through NIH's Helping to End Addiction Long-Term (HEAL) Initiative, a program to accelerate research efforts to stem the public health crisis of OUD.
The University of Luxembourg and the Goodyear Innovation Center in Luxembourg have launched a new research project that studies the use of near-field communication in automotive safety systems.
The valves and pumps being developed by the research group led by Professor Stefan Seelecke at Saarland University are made from electroactive silicone film and offer a lot more than just the typical 'open/close' or 'on/off' functionality. The researchers control the film electrically and can make it execute precise vibrations or pulses on demand, while also monitoring its exact position or shape.
In Finland, the health data collected in national registries already serves fairly well the needs of clinical care and academic fundamental research, and statistical purposes.
To successfully implement the energy transition and to store regenerative energy, better batteries are required. The European research initiative BATTERY 2030+ brings together leading scientists and companies from all over Europe to achieve major progress in battery science and technology. It is scheduled for a duration of ten years. The preparation project for BATTERY 2030+ will start in March. Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is a partner of this consortium.
