Researchers at Brown University have identified a protein in cerebrospinal fluid associated with Alzheimer’s disease is also linked to preeclampsia, and it can influence diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
A new study led by Brown University researchers suggests a need to reevaluate opioid addiction treatment recommendations in the era of fentanyl.
A research team at Brown has created a machine learning algorithm using computational topology to study how these cells organize themselves into tissue-like architectures. In a new study, they take that system to the next level, opening a path to studying how multiple types of cells assemble themselves.
A study led by Brown University scientists begins to address a longstanding question in condensed matter physics on whether disorder mimics or destroys the quantum liquid state in a prominent compound.
Genomic surveillance by a Brown-led team of scientists has revealed mutations in malaria-causing parasites that will complicate efforts to eradicate the disease in Africa.
A team of Brown-led engineers show that a sphere held almost completely under flowing water induces drag forces several times greater than if it were fully submerged, detailing new and interesting physics of drag resistance.
Building on a deep interest in synthetic biology, a rising Brown University senior spent his summer helping to develop a sustainable alternative to arsenic detection and removal methods.
Using a brain-computer interface, a clinical trial participant who lost the ability to speak was able to create text on a computer at rates that approach the speed of regular speech just by thinking of saying the words.
A new study reveals genetic and other biological mechanisms that allow parasites to manipulate its host.
About five years ahead of schedule, a small cube satellite designed and built by Brown University students to demonstrate a practical, low-cost method to cut down on space junk reentered Earth’s atmosphere.
