In research that may help bridge the divide between the nano and the macro, Brown University chemists have used pyramid-shaped nanoparticles to create what might be the most complex macroscale superstructure ever assembled.
Assisted reproductive technologies are not the sole cause of multiple births — naturally occurring multiple births due to women choosing to have children later in life is responsible for a growing percentage of multiples.
Intervention by researchers reduced household lead below levels previously deemed achievable and reduced blood lead concentrations in more highly exposed children, though the decrease did not result in significant neurobehavioral improvements in children
Brown-led study finds that motivational interviewing with personalized feedback and booster sessions produced substantial reductions in alcohol use among heavy-drinking men who have sex with men who are living with HIV.
By revealing the structure of proteins that enable sperm and egg to fuse to form zygotes in plant and protozoan species, the new study may aid in discovering the fusion process for humans, which remains a mystery.
Meenakshi Narain will lead the collaboration board for U.S. institutions participating in the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, an experiment pushing the frontiers of modern particle physics.
By measuring how heat is conducted in an exotic matter state, researchers show evidence for the presence of ‘non-Abelian anyons,’ particles that could store quantum information without need of error correction.
Brown University chemists have shown a technique that can identify regions in a liquid crystal system where molecular order begins to emerge just before the system fully transitions from disordered to ordered states.
A Brown University undergraduate led a JAMA Ophthalmology study showing that many ophthalmology residents face burnout and are often unable to participate in wellness initiatives, which has adverse consequences for both residents and patients.
