Altered body odor indicates malaria even if microscope doesn't
Altered body odor indicates malaria even if microscope doesn't 14 May 2018Typhoid Mary may have infected a hundred or more people, but asymptomatic carriers of malaria infect far more people every year through mosquito vectors. An international team of researchers is working toward a way to identify malaria patients including infected individuals who show no malaria symptoms.
A designer’s toolkit for constructing complex nanoparticles
A designer’s toolkit for constructing complex nanoparticles 03 May 2018A team of chemists at Penn State has developed a designer’s toolkit that lets them build various levels of complexity into nanoparticles using a simple, mix-and-match process.
New sodium-ion electrolyte may find use in solid-state batteries
New sodium-ion electrolyte may find use in solid-state batteries 20 April 2018A newly discovered structure of a sodium-based material allows the materials to be used as an electrolyte in solid-state batteries, according to researchers from Penn State and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). The team is fine-tuning the material using an iterative design approach that they hope will shave years off the time from research to everyday use.
