Kevin Noonan, an assistant professor of chemistry, has received the National Science Foundation’s most prestigious award for young faculty members, the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award.
Large-Scale Simulation Provides Theoretical Evidence of Early Disk Galaxies
A new, large-scale computer simulation has shown for the first time that large disk galaxies, much like our own Milky Way, may have existed in the early days of the universe. The simulation, created by physicists at the McWilliams Center for Cosmology, shows that the early universe — a mere 500 million years after the Big Bang — might have had more order and structure than previously thought.
Findings Provide Potential New Target To Interfere With Viral Life Cycle
All viruses have industrial-strength shells that surround and protect the genetic material within, enabling the viral particles to remain stable, infectious and capable of spreading. Carnegie Mellon University biophysicist Alex Evilevitch and colleagues have now identified that tough shell’s Achilles’ heel.
