DES MOINES, Iowa – A team of education and business leaders established by the Iowa Department of Education met Tuesday at the Science Center of Iowa to continue their review of the state’s science education standards. In their last meeting on March 24, the team members agreed that the Next Generation Science Standards should be the basis for their work on a final recommendation to the State …
Team Looks to New Science Standards for State Education
( University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine ) Penn Medicine researchers are continuing their work in trying to understand the mechanisms through which anesthetics work to elicit the response that puts millions of Americans to sleep for surgeries each day. Their most recent study looked at ketamine, an anesthetic discovered in the 1960s and recently prescribed as an anti-depressant at low …

( New York University ) Louis Nirenberg, a professor emeritus at NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, has been awarded the Abel Prize in Mathematics by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters for his work in the area of partial differential equations.
Maths and science participation among New South Wales HSC students has declined starkly over the past decade, which in turn is leading to fewer teachers with this crucial background for their work in schools, according to new research.
He's been on major TV networks and in national newspapers to promote his new book, and now Dr. Eric Topol joins my humble podcast series to discuss his work in more depth than you'll hear elsewhere.
Researchers at the New York University Polytechnic School of Engineering have broken new ground in the development of proteins that form specialized fibers used in medicine and nanotechnology. For as long as scientists have been able to create new proteins that are capable of self-assembling into fibers, their work has taken place on the nanoscale
Researchers at the University of Calgary's Hotchkiss Brain Institute and Southern Alberta Cancer Research Institute have made a discovery that could prolong the life of people living with glioblastoma – the most aggressive type of brain cancer. Samuel Weiss, PhD, Professor and Director of the HBI, and Research Assistant Professor Artee Luchman, PhD, and colleagues, published their work today in …
