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.
Using computer simulations and laboratory experiments, a Brown-led team of scientists found a new class of antibiotics with the potential to treat MRSA and other infections that are increasingly resistant to traditional antibiotics.
Backed by the Brown Institute for Brain Science and organized by a neuroscience postdoc, the weeklong series of talks, film screenings, art shows and fairs aims to make brain research fun, educational and accessible.
Perovskite solar cells are a promising new low-cost photovoltaic technology, but most contain toxic lead; a team led by Brown researchers has introduced solar cells with a new titanium-perovskite material that gets the lead out.
Using an abandoned U.S. military base in Greenland as a case study, new Brown research explores how the impact of climate change on domestic and overseas military bases could cause a host of political and diplomatic problems.
A new approach to calibrating the pioneering BrainGate brain-computer interface allowed three clinical trial participants with tetraplegia to gain control of a computer cursor after just one simple calibration step.
New research in mice and humans suggests that an enzyme called SNRK suppresses inflammation in obesity-related “white fat” while increasing metabolism in heat-producing “brown fat,” making SNRK an intriguing target in the battle against obesity.
Results of a new randomized, double-blinded, controlled clinical trial in veterans showed a 75 percent reduction in the risk of needing surgery to treat a squamous cell carcinoma for a year after applying a skin cream for up to four weeks.
Researchers report that thousands of leukemia patients who received frequent transfusions had very short stays in hospice at the end of life, suggesting that transfusion dependence presents a barrier to making meaningful use of palliative care.
New research suggests that the bulk of clay minerals on Mars could have been formed as the planet’s crust cooled and solidified, not by later interactions with water on the surface as has long been assumed.
Because mindfulness-based interventions blend multiple practices, researchers can’t always figure out how each one works, so they created a rigorously controlled study to isolate each of them and confirm that they do what is claimed.
