Improving product quality in pharmaceutical ball milling

Ball milling is used in the pharmaceutical industry to reduce the size of particulate material such as pharmaceutical granules. Dr Alexander Krok and Dr Sandra Lenihan from Munster Technological University, Ireland, have developed a computational approach to achieve optimal, energy-efficient size reduction in ball milling resulting in the production of high-quality particulate material (i.e. granules) of homogeneous shape and size.

Directed Panspermia: Synthetic DNA in bioforming planets

This seeding of a planet with life is known as directed panspermia.

As our technological advancements continue, scientists are beginning to turn what was science fiction into reality. Concepts such as terraforming and travel between stars are becoming more achievable, giving life to the dream that one day we might colonise other planets. Directed panspermia is one method of altering a hostile, uninhabited planet to a more Earth-like environment, and Cork Institute […]

A blended learning programme for out-of-field mathematics teaching

A blended learning programme for out-of-field mathematics teaching

Out-of-field teaching is an international phenomenon with particular prevalence in the teaching of mathematics. Professor Merrilyn Goos, Professor of STEM Education at the University of Limerick, and Director of EPI*STEM describes the design features of a national mathematics teacher professional development programme. Employing three boundary crossing frameworks exposes the signature features of this part-time graduate programme’s blended learning design, and […]

Nanotechnology provides new methods for oral delivery of peptides

Nanotechnology provides new methods for oral delivery of peptides

One aspect of successful drug development is efficient delivery to affected organs. Most drugs are taken by mouth, travel to the intestines, are absorbed into the bloodstream, and circulated to organs of interest. However, a class of potent drugs known as peptides cannot withstand this abrasive route and are directly injected into veins, under the skin, or into muscles. Injections […]
