"This is a shining example of Canadian science making breakthroughs that will improve quality of life for people in Canada and around the globe," says President and CEO of the Canada Foundation for Innovation Dr. Eliot Phillipson. "This world-class project will further...

First greenhouse gas animations produced using Envisat SCIAMACHY data

...rface because it observes the spectrum of sunlight shining through the atmosphere in 'nadir' looking operations. Dr. Michael Buchwitz and Oliver Schneising from the Institute of Environmental Physics (IUP) at the University of Bremen in Germany, led by Prof. Dr. John P. Burrows produced these maps based o...

Holographic images use shimmer to show cellular response to anticancer drug

Optics tests for early Alzheimer's diagnosis make significant advances

...laser that very briefly is directed into the lens, shining low-power light into the eye. The light is safe and barely visible to the patient and does not provide any discomfort, Goldstein says. In the first test, light enters the lens and ricochets or "scatters" from tiny particles too small for the eye ...

It is a shining example of an NIH institute supporting the development of a medical device that has great public impact from basic research through preclinical testing and on to clinical readiness. The total artificial heart will extend and improve the quality of ...

Georgetown research leads to first cancer vaccine

...of people, at the right time, with the right stars shining in our direction." Ghim remembers that once the three researchers began working together, they knew they were on to something. "Progress was slow at first, but we sensed it was coming. No one really believed in a vaccine's ability to prevent cancer,"...

Purdue's gold nanorods brighten future for medical imaging

...-sensitive medical imaging technique that works by shining a laser through the skin to detect tiny gold nanorods injected into the bloodstream. In tests with mice, the nanorods yielded images nearly 60 times brighter than conventional fluorescent dyes, including rhodamine, commonly used for a wide range of ...

Cancer treatment illustrates UI, private sector partnership

...nt for lung and possibly other cancers. "This is a shining example of how the public benefits from new knowledge generated at the University of Iowa," said UI President David Skorton. "This promising cancer treatment is a direct result of intellectual property developed in our research laboratories over the ...

Detecting Alzheimer's in the eye, lifting fingerprints without touching the surface

...uccess depends upon the clever use of optics. By shining thelight on the fingerprint at a special angle, and then positioningthe polarizer so that reflected light passes through it, thepolarizer will selectively darken either only the background or onlythe fingerprint mark area, thus increasing the contras...

Quitting smoking could save your teeth, study shows

...trol. "Newcastle University's Dental School is a shining example by ensuring dental students are now taught how to counsel patients on this issue as part of their dental degree." Amanda Sandford, Research Manager for ASH, commented: "As gum disease is often painless, smokers may be completely unaware of t...

Tumor detection, data encryption to benefit from UH research

...eeks and attaches to tumor cells. Then, simply by shining light on the body, one may optically detect and pinpoint precise locations of tumors." Though Sharma is well aware of the possible products of his research, he maintains his work is largely fundamental and provides the basis for these potential us...
