New doesn’t always mean better: Do consumers prefer older drugs?

With new drugs being approved and released every year, Dr Yun Jie, Assistant Professor of Marketing at the School of Business, Sun Yat-sen University China, in collaboration with Professor Ye Li from the School of Business at The University of California, Riverside, have investigated the effect of launch time on consumer choice. Using a series of studies, Dr Jie has […]

Using thermal imaging to prevent and forecast particulate emissions from mine tailings

Fugitive dust emissions from dry mine tailings surfaces is an environmental concern that undermines the mining industry’s social acceptability. Aluminium refining waste material management involves intensive mud farming activities intended to accelerate drying prior to the residue’s permanent storage and site remediation. Throughout this process surface evaporation occurs much faster, requiring continuous and in-situ monitoring of mine tailings’ drying state […]

A new generation of induced pluripotent stem cells for regenerative medicine

Embryonic stem cells or induced pluripotent stem cells are unlimited sources for the generation of cell derivatives for the regeneration of failing organs. However, such cell transplants are subject to immune rejection by the recipient’s immune system. Drs Sonja Schrepfer and Tobias Deuse from the University of California, San Francisco, have developed a new generation of immune-edited induced pluripotent stem […]

A new computational approach to Digital Holographic Microscopy

Digital Holographic Microscopy offers a unique way for researchers to precisely examine the 3D topography of microscopic objects. However, until now the capabilities of this technique have been limited by complications involving the complex computational method used. The Optical Imaging Research Laboratory at the University of Memphis, led by Dr Ana Doblas, and collaborators have constructed algorithms which can automatically […]

Modelling sea-island reversal in viscoelastic phase separation

In the 1990s, researchers first discovered that within mixtures of viscoelastic materials, unique transitions known as phase separations can appear when the right conditions are applied. In his research, Mr Yoshihide Kubo, Hiroshima University alumnus, presents the first robust approach for modelling these systems, avoiding unnecessary complexities while producing results which can be easily reproduced in experiments. His work addresses […]

A new 3D hybrid model for epithelial morphogenesis

Wound healing is a biological mechanism that allows the integrity and functionality of tissues to be preserved. Dr Jose Muñoz, Associate Professor at the Laboratory of Numerical Analysis (LaCàN), Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Spain, models the three-dimensional mechanisms involved in wound healing. In this research, these three-dimensional mechanisms are simulated with a hybrid vertex model. Supported by experimental observation, the […]

Preterm birth and danger-associated molecular patterns

Preterm birth is the leading cause of infantile mortality. Dr Claire Kendal-Wright from the Chaminade University of Honolulu works on human extra-embryonic membranes. More specifically, she studies danger-associated molecular patterns, or DAMPs, and examines how these molecules contribute to the prelabour rupture of the membranes that leads to birth. Understanding the mechanisms involved in healthy pregnancy could eventually allow the […]
