A new model for predicting COVID-19's impact using artificial intelligence (AI) dramatically outperforms other models, so much so that it has attracted the interest of public health officials across the country.
A team led by Caltech researchers has pinpointed the mechanisms through which the SARS-CoV-2 virus incapacitates human cells, essentially disabling the cell's alarm system so that it cannot call for help or warn nearby cells of the infection.
Caltech researchers have developed a new type of test with a low-cost sensor that may enable the at-home diagnosis of a COVID infection through rapid analysis of small volumes of saliva or blood, without the involvement of a medical professional, in less than 10 minutes.
A team of scientists at Stony Brook University, Caltech, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology has found a way for the first time to detect multiple tones of a black hole ringing like a bell — something that most astrophysicists thought would not be possible for a decade or more.
Researchers at Northwestern and Caltech produce electricity by flowing water over extremely thin layers of metal, finding an oxide layer atop nanometal layer results in electron shuttle, not corrosion.
