Disabling a gene in specific mouse cells, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have prevented mice from becoming obese, even after the animals had been fed a high-fat diet.
Scientists at International Advanced Research Centre for Powder Metallurgy & New Materials (ARCI), an autonomous R&D Centre of Department of Science and Technology (DST), Govt. of India, have developed and patented a bi-layer, scratch-resistant, anti-reflection coating on glass and silicon wafer substrates using a cost-effective dip-coating technique which can increase the power conversion efficiency of solar thermal systems.
Professor Shobhana Narasimhan from the Theoretical Sciences Unit (TSU) at the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR), an autonomous institute under the Department of Science & Technology, has been elected as an International Honorary Member to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The new development, recently reported in the scientific journal Nature Communications ("Breaking translational symmetry via polymer chain overcrowding in molecular bottlebrush crystallization"), was led by Christopher Li, PhD, a professor in Drexel's College of Engineering whose research has centered around engineering polymer structures for special applications, in collaboration with Bin Zhao, PhD, a professor in the Chemistry Department at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.Their work shows how these structures, like polymer crystal spheres, can be formed simply by mixing chemicals in a solution - rather than physically manipulating their growth.
