Cheng, Slipchenko Develop Nano-particle Screening Tool
December 27, 2010
Professors Ji-Xin Cheng and Mikhail Slipchenko's recent collaboration shed new light on nano-particles. Metallic and semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes are distinguished using a new imaging tool for rapidly screening the structures. The technology may hasten the use of nanotubes in creating a new class of computers and electronics that are faster and consume less power than those in use today and implicate potential use in biomedical applications.

Discovery in Multiple Sclerosis Suggests Hope
December 08, 2010
The toxic substance acrolein, an environmental pollutant, was elevated by about 60 percent in the spinal cord tissues of mice with a disease similar to multiple sclerosis in work performed by a research team led by Weldon Professor Riyi Shi. The study suggests that acrolein may be key for disease etiology and treatment.
