Engineers at the University of Maryland (UMD) have for the first time demonstrated that wood can be directly converted into a carbon sponge capable of withstanding repeated compression and other extreme mechanical conditions.
It is easier to spread the flu than previously thought, according to a new University of Maryland-led study.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have identified and isolated a gene that is directly involved in the way strawberry plants grow, spread and produce fruit. 
Engineers at the University of Maryland have found a way to make wood more than ten times stronger and tougher than before, creating a natural substance that is stronger than many titanium alloys.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have developed a new technique involving specially designed nanoparticles and near-infrared laser treatment to combat drug-resistant cancer cells.
New research uncovers an 87 percent increase in maternal deaths in Texas in recent years, but say some of the spike is attributable to overreporting and a flawed data collection system.
Researchers have made significant progress in detecting and treating bacterial biofilms by developing new chemical compounds, materials, and microsystems that can fight sources of postoperative infections.
University of Maryland (UMD) spinout Otomagnetics announced the development of a magnetic drug delivery system to enable prevention of a major side effect of chemotherapy in children – hearing loss.
Scientists at the University of Maryland and Duke University have created a novel protein-sugar designed to break down HIV’s sugar shield defense.  The new molecule could one day become part of a successful HIV vaccine.
Researchers at the University of Maryland (UMD) have partnered with the John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) and the Army Research Lab to develop an enhanced Li-ion battery that is able to maintain its mechanical integrity under adverse conditions including bending, cutting and liquid submersion.
