With a new five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health, the Center for Addiction and Disease Risk Exacerbation will launch four research projects and establish a clinical laboratory for biological addiction research at Brown University.
The new collaboration between Brown University and the Rhode Island Department of Corrections will expand an already successful opioid treatment program in correctional institutions, helping people who are in the justice system but outside prison walls.
Ariel Deutsch, a Ph.D. student in the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences, will join an astronaut who walked on the Moon and two top NASA scientists for a panel titled “Lunar Geology: Past, Present and Future.”
Researchers in Brown’s School of Engineering are developing next-generation renewable energy technologies, advancing energy efficiency in computing and finding new ways to detect and clean contaminants in the environment.
In a step toward molecular storage systems that could hold vast amounts of data in tiny spaces, Brown University researchers have shown it’s possible to store image files in solutions of common biological small molecules.
Study found that hospitals with more black patients saw smaller increases in compliance with new sepsis protocols than those that treat mainly white patients, highlighting a need to evaluate the effects of quality improvement projects for minority groups.
A new study reveals a suite of quantum Hall states that have not been seen previously, shedding new light on the nature of electron interactions in quantum systems and establishing a potential new platform for future quantum computers.
At the first Dr. Samuel M. Nabrit Conference, molecular life scientists from historically underrepresented groups gathered at Brown to learn about cutting-edge research; Brown professors and junior researchers discussed how their identities as members of underrepresented groups have affected their career paths.
There are no legal safe consumption spaces in the U.S. currently, but a three-city study found that a majority of people who use opioids would be willing to use locations where they would have medical support in case of overdose.
As alumni returned to campus and thousands of new graduates prepared to receive their degrees and begin the next chapter of their lives, the Brown community dedicated a student-designed sundial sculpture named ‘Infinite Possibility.’
In a finding that is soon to be ground-truthed by NASA’s next Mars rover, Brown University researchers show that a Martian mineral deposit was likely formed by ashfall from ancient volcanic explosions.
Working with a Brown University faculty member, an undergraduate student developed an algorithm that enables robots to reproduce human-like pen strokes just by looking at images of handwriting or sketches.
The new initiative at Brown — spearheaded by a master of public health student — will formalize collaboration among faculty and students who are conducting research on health outcomes of Filipinos and Filipino Americans.
Guided by computer simulations, an international team of researchers has developed an adhesive patch that can provide support for damaged heart tissue, potentially reducing the stretching of heart muscle that’s common after a heart attack.
Brown engineering professor Chris Rose thinks the tiny data disks with volumes of human knowledge currently flying to the Moon on the Beresheet spacecraft are a great way to communicate across time and space.
The academic journal PLOS ONE on March 19 published a revised version of a study on “rapid-onset gender dysphoria” — information on the revised version and a series of previous statements to the Brown community are detailed here.
