Evidence from an Iowa State study indicates exposure to high levels of PFAS can lead to adverse health effects for humans and other species, and stresses the need for new ways to measure and study exposures to these synthetic chemicals from various sources including food.
Researchers led by Iowa State University's Laura Jarboe are working to improve bioproduction of fuels and chemicals by finding enzymes that can withstand the heat and acidity used to lower industrial fermentation costs. The project is supported by a three-year, $969,000 grant from the U.S.…
A new study led by an Iowa State University scientist details the structure of a critical enzyme that enables the coronavirus to resist antiviral medications. Scientists could use the study to find ways to inhibit the enzyme, possibly leading to more effective treatments.
Scientists at Iowa State University are poised to take a significant step forward by transferring a human immune system into pigs to allow for more realistic evaluations of human cellular and tissue responses.
An Iowa State University researcher has spent the last five years running wind tunnel experiments to collect data on cable vibration in the high winds generated by hurricanes and other windstorms, understand how wind flows around the cables
Perovskites with their crystal structures and promising electro-optical properties could be the active ingredient that makes the next generation of low-cost, efficient, lightweight and flexible solar cells, per Iowa State researchers
Researchers at the Iowa State University have found that diversified crop rotations protect water quality and have other environmental benefits, but recent experiments show that farms can’t rely on such rotations to improve carbon storage in the soil.
