Cody Smith has been granted a highly competitive National Institutes of Health Director’s New Innovator Award that will allow him to perform bold research that has the potential to impact a broad area of science.
During his postdoctoral research, Notre Dame electrical engineer Scott Howard wanted to produce more precise images of the activity within a cell by increasing the power of the microscope’s laser. When he experimented with different power levels, he discovered that his computer was receiving an extra copy of image data. “When you...
Eck Institute for Global Health faculty, Sharon Stack, shares some of her background, research interests, and her unusual family pets. Stack is currently the Ann F. Dunne and Elizabeth Riley Director of Harper Cancer Research Institute and Kleiderer-Pezold Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame.
Using a new technique that can identify genetic profiles of individual cells, University of Notre Dame researchers modeled a breast cancer tumor’s potential resistance to a drug, and then identified a drug combination that reversed that resistance.
Nine graduate students from the University of Notre Dame have joined the Eck Institute for Global Health’s fellowship program. The program aims to support students across the University with an interest in topics that impact global health.
The Jefferson Science Fellowship Program is designed to further build capacity for science, technology and engineering expertise with the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
A new study from the University of Notre Dame has shown that synaptic vesicles are utilized much earlier than previously thought for the formation of the spinal cord during early development.
With funding from the American Heart Association, Notre Dame researchers will use biomaterials and stem cells to regenerate lymphatic vessels and study their potential for therapeutic applications.
