A team of Hopkins researchers at the Imaging for Surgery, Therapy, and Radiology (I-STAR) Labs is working on a less invasive solution that doesn’t require additional equipment or expose patients to the extra radiation or long scan times typically associated with live imaging.
Using powerful transmission electron microscopes, Ken Livi, an associate research scientist in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and director of operations for the Whiting School of Engineering’s Materials Characterization and Processing facility, examined samples of Blood Falls water and found an abundance of iron-rich nanospheres that oxidize, turning the water seemingly gory and solving a century-old mystery.
The chromosome associated with male development—the last mysterious piece of the human genome—has been fully sequenced by a global team of more than 100 researchers, including those at Johns Hopkins.
Not only may ChatGPT’s output “be factually incorrect,” Joseph Carrigan warns, but companies running these models might use your information in other unexpected ways.
Batteries often stop working at inopportune moments, and little is known about why they gradually lose their ability to store and deliver energy over time, a process known as degradation. Yayuan Liu, assistant professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, is working to shed light—literally—on why this process happens.
Scientists can’t peer directly into the high-pressure environment of the Earth’s crust, but the High-Pressure TriAxial COmpression Instrument, or “HP-TACO,” can help.
