Johns Hopkins engineers break the miscibility limitation in conventional alloy catalysts

September 24, 2019

High-entropy nanoparticles hold promise for catalytic applications Alloying is a magic trick used to produce new materials by synergistically mixing at least two metallic elements to form a solid solution. Recent developments in science have found great applications of alloy materials in catalysis, for which nanometer scale bi- or tri-metallic particles are used to accelerate […]

Predicting Breast Cancer Metastasis by Cell Behavior Instead of Genetics

May 31, 2019

Researchers and clinicians don’t fully understand why some cancers spread and others do not. What they do know is that when cancer does spread, it dramatically decreases survival rates. If physicians could predict the likelihood that primary tumors will metastasize, they would be able to choose the best treatment options for patients. However, current testing […]
