Economist Patrick Turley of USC Dornsife and a multinational group of researchers issue a special report that examines the benefits, risks, and ethics of selecting embryos to ensure healthier, smarter children
Researchers at Tulane University, Harvard University, MIT, and Massachusetts General Hospital have learned that obesity, age and COVID-19 infection correlate with a propensity to breathe out more respiratory droplets — key spreaders of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
University of Oregon chemists analyzing a new porous material synthesized by a research group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have discovered that electrical charges flow through it in an unexpected but potentially advantageous way.
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.
In an advance that could accelerate battery development and improve manufacturing, Stanford scientists have found how to accurately predict the useful lifespan of lithium-ion batteries, used in devices from mobile phones to electric cars.
An MIT-led research team has developed a drug capsule that could be used to deliver oral doses of insulin, potentially replacing the injections that people with type 2 diabetes have to give themselves every day.
MIT engineers have developed a robot to play a slow-moving, yet surprisingly agile game of Jenga. Machine-learning approach could help robots assemble cellphones and other small parts in a manufacturing line.
