Microrobot-packed Pill Shows Promise for Treating Inflammatory Bowel Disease in Mice

June 26, 2024

Engineers have developed a pill that releases microscopic robots, or microrobots, into the colon to treat inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The experimental treatment, given orally, has shown success in mice. It significantly reduced IBD symptoms and promoted the healing of damaged colon tissue without causing toxic side effects.

What Will It Take for China to Reach Carbon Neutrality by 2060?

February 26, 2024

To become carbon neutral by 2060, as mandated by President Xi Jinping, China will have to build eight to 10 times more wind and solar power installations than existed in 2022.

Physicists Practice ‘Spin Control’ to Improve Information Processing

July 16, 2018

…signal processing. They do this by using “excitons,” electrically neutral quasiparticles that exist in insulators, semiconductors and in some liquids. And their latest study of excitonic spin dynamics shows functional promise for our future devices.

Genetics May Play Role in Determining Immunity to COVID-19

February 18, 2021

UC San Diego researchers report that individual immune response to SARS-CoV-2 may be limited by a set of variable genes that code for cell surface proteins essential for the adaptive immune system. The finding may help explain why COVID-19 immunity varies by individual.

These excuses mitigate the mental discomfort you might otherwise experience at committing an act that is misaligned with your perception of self as a “good person.” I had to speed because I was late. I had to lie to spare her feelings. I had to…

Physicists’ Room-Temperature Research Leads to ‘Exciting’ Possibilities for Science

May 22, 2018

…created both by light and transformed into light. Electrically neutral, these quasiparticles exist in systems like insulators and semiconductors, but University of California San Diego physicists have established a way that may bring them into future cell phones and laptops.
