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.
A USC study shows medication could someday help the brain heal itself after a stroke, or even prevent damage following a blow to the head.
Caltech researchers have developed two new illusions that reveal how the senses can influence each other—in particular, how sound can give rise to visual illusions.
The development of an aggressive, early-onset form of colon cancer may come down to a single missing iron atom in a key DNA repair protein, according to researchers.
A new test that identifies antibiotic-resistant bacteria in as little as 30 minutes could change the way antibiotics are prescribed and help reduce the spread of superbug bacteria

New research conducted at Caltech and UC San Francisco (UCSF) is suggesting that the key to curing multiple sclerosis (MS) could be hiding in an unlikely place—our excrement. 

Caltech researchers have developed a new microchip for use in "smart pills" that may one day move through the body to diagnose and treat disease.
Engineers at Caltech have developed a smartphone app that can measure a key indicator of your heart's health, simply by placing the phone's camera against your neck.
Caltech chemists have figured out a new, more efficient way to create carbon-based fuels from carbon dioxide (CO2).
