A new method for developing artificial ovaries — ScienceDaily

An interdisciplinary team of researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) led by Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini from the Chair of Materials Science (biomaterials) and Prof. Dr. Ralf Dittrich from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen have taken an important step towards developing artificial ovaries for patients suffering from cancer. Together, they have been…

Forests, carbon sinks cannot make up for delays in decarbonizing the economy, experts argue — ScienceDaily

To stabilize the Earth’s climate for people and ecosystems, it is imperative to ramp up natural climate solutions and, at the same time, accelerate mitigation efforts across the energy and industrial sectors, according to a new policy perspective published today in Science. Among their findings, the researchers warn that a ten-year delay in emissions reductions…

Machinery used in basic cell division does double duty as builder of neurons — ScienceDaily

Researchers at the San Diego branch of the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research at University of California San Diego have identified an entirely new mechanism underlying the development and structure of the nervous system during embryogenesis. The findings, publishing in the February 28, 2019 issue of Developmental Cell, focus on the dynamic coupling of microtubule…

New method fills critical need to measure large-scale quantum correlation of single photons — ScienceDaily

For the first time, researchers have demonstrated a way to map and measure large-scale photonic quantum correlation with single-photon sensitivity. The ability to measure thousands of instances of quantum correlation is critical for making photon-based quantum computing practical. In Optica, The Optical Society’s journal for high impact research, a multi-institutional group of researchers reports the…
