Graphene: The Hope for Renewable Energy

A new scientific discovery can often generate a chain reaction where additional breakthroughs take place, expanding on existing technology and generating new findings. For example, after single-layer graphene was experimentally isolated in 2004, the two-dimensional material rose to prominence in the scientific community and later earned Andre Geim and Konstantin […]

 
 

Bona Fide Beauty Led Off By Bona Fide Change

Since the First World War, humans have sought ways to correct deformities and facial damage inflicted during the horrors of combat. Additionally, many more individuals seek ways to correct hair lips, cleft palates, and other facial problems, originated at birth (1). Modern medicine and surgery have pursued many ways to […]

 
 

Scientists restore hearing to sound-deafened mice

Scientists have been able to restore hearing to deaf mice using a protein called neurotrophin-3

Scientists at the University of Michigan and Harvard University have been able to restore hearing to deaf mice using a protein called neurotrophin-3 (NT3). Gabriel Corfas, the lead scientist on the project, is hoping to develop a similar treatment for humans. The research holds promise for those who have lost […]

The Yale PET Center is experimenting with ways in which positron emission tomography, previously a tool used preferentially for brain imaging studies, can be generalized to study the concentrations of clinically relevant chemical substances in other parts of the body. The center, headed by Professor of Biomedical Engineering Richard Carson, […]

 
 

STEM Panel & Guide

STEM Panel & Guide

DUJS STEM Guide 2014 (PDF)   Just three years ago, we found it difficult to traverse the maze of science, technology, engineering, and math — or STEM — courses here at Dartmouth. Because we realized the utility of a centralized resource for academic inquiries, this publication serves as the inaugural […]
