An international team of researchers has launched the Clinical Epidemiology Database, an open-access online resource enabling investigators to maximize the utility and reach of their data and to make optimal use of information released by others.
Substance abuse, particularly opioid abuse, is an ongoing issue in the US. While treatments such as drug counseling and a handful of medications to combat withdrawal symptoms and cravings exist, the fear and risk of relapsing is real. An article in Chemical & Engineering News (C&EN), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, describes how vaccines targeting drugs of abuse could prevent relapse.
Through a European project, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Neonelektro have developed new types of LED displays that combine the flexibility, low cost and high technical performance enabled by roll-to-roll mass manufacturing technology.
Four students from South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) have won prizes at the 2018 HCI Korea Creative Awards, one of the largest academic conferences in the field of Human-Computer Interaction.
Cellulose is a common raw material in electrical insulation components. However, the production of high quality products is labour-intensive and slow. Scientists are solving these problems by developing new processing solutions in the EU-funded NOVUM project.
The biological potential of agricultural plants can only be fully unlocked when they get a balanced mix of various trace elements that take part in key metabolic events. An imbalance of microelemental nutrition disrupts the development of plants, which results in their diseases and even death. Ultimately, plants do not realize their biological capabilities and yield a poor harvest. Therefore, the use of microelement fertilizers is growing in crop production.
