Predicting risk of valvular heart disease

13.1.2014   |   News of Science

Researchers at the University of Copenhagen, Rigshospitalet and Herlev Hospital have identified a clear link between narrowed heart valves and a special lipoprotein in the blood. In the long term, the research may well help to prevent valvular heart disease. The new findings have just been published in the Journal of the American College of...


How light affects individual atoms for the first time?

4.12.2013   |   News of Science

Tyndall National Institute and its collaborators are unravelling how atoms vibrate and change when hit with intense bursts of light. The ground-breaking work has been recognised through publication of a paper in the prestigious journal, Nature Physics.


Cleaner and Greener Cities With Integrated Transparent Solar Cells

19.11.2013   |   News of Science

Imagine buildings in which the windows allow the sun's light to enter, and at the same time capture the energy from the sun needed to meet all their energy needs. In this seemingly futuristic scenario, the windows become productive solar cells that help us decrease our reliance on fossil fuels and advance towards a greener and cleaner...

Effect of particle diameter and surface composition on the spontaneous fusion of monolayer-protected gold nanoparticles with lipid bilayers

14.10.2013   |   News of Science

Effect of particle diameter and surface composition on the spontaneous fusion of monolayer-protected gold nanoparticles with lipid bilayers. Anionic, monolayer-protected gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) have been shown to nondisruptively penetrate cellular membranes. Here, we show that a critical first step in the penetration process is potentially the...

Genetic Changes In Offspring, Even Before Conception

12.9.2013   |   News of Science

A female's exposure to distress even before she conceives causes changes in the expression of a gene linked to the stress mechanism in the body - in the ovum and later in the brains of the offspring from when they are born, according to a new study on rats conducted by the University of Haifa.
