Their findings provide new insights into how the protein regulates cell growth and how mutations in the gene that encodes the protein can lead to cancer.
The breakthrough could help see the pathways that degenerate with Parkinson’s and Huntingdon’s disease.
The award is one of 16 NSF grants totaling $13.1 million to support potentially transformative research in neural and cognitive systems.
A new, large-scale computer simulation shows that the early universe — 500 million years after the Big Bang — might have had more order and structure than previously thought.
The findings pinpoint the weakest part of the viral shell and provide a potential new target for interfering with the viral life cycle.
The projects range from creating advanced diagnostics for mild traumatic brain injury to studying how the brain responds to mechanical stimuli.
CMU chemists have developed two novel methods to characterize 3-dimensional macroporous hydrogels — materials that hold great promise for catalysts, chemical detectors, tissue engineering and more.
The grant will allow professors to teach mice to use brain-computer interfaces, which could provide new information about the neural basis of learning, behavior and motor control.
Catalysts created by Carnegie Mellon University chemist Terrence J. Collins effectively and safely remove a potent and dangerous endocrine disruptor from wastewater.
A single dose of an FDA-approved intravenous nutrition source may be able to significantly reduce the toxicity and increase the effectiveness of platinum-based cancer drugs.
This is the first time that researchers successfully used matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization mass spectrometry to analyze a mixture of intact virus particles.
Matyjaszewski is receiving the prize for excellence in “Making Molecules and Materials.” The international prize is given every two years to recognize accomplishments in chemistry.
