Cool temps did nothing to chill the heated competition among College of Science Shaheen 3MT competitors Tuesday night at Jordan Hall of Science.
The fellowship provides three years of financial support in the form of $34,000 annual stipends and $12,000 cost-of-education allowances to the fellows’ graduate institutions.
From engineering to biology, there is at least some concern of whether or not a given study’s results can be reproduced and therefore utilized in another study. To overcome this challenge, computational scientists from five research universities, including the University of Notre Dame, are developing a cyberinfrastructure and supporting tools that allow researchers to conduct and track their work – including data and methodologies – in a reproducible way.
Beta-lactam antibiotics, including penicillin, are one of the most widely used class of antibiotics in the world. Though they’ve been in use since the 1940s, scientists still don’t fully understand what happens when this class of drugs encounters bacteria. Now, researchers at the University of Notre Dame have elucidated how an enzyme helps bacteria rebound from damage inflicted by antibiotics not strong enough to immediately kill the bacteria on contact.
On April 9, faculty, students, staff, and the public are invited to attend the Harper Cancer Research Institute’s seventh annual Cancer Research Day. This flagship event highlights cancer research at the University of Notre Dame as well as other local cancer organizations.
Notre Dame researchers, including students and faculty members, are invited to nominate a fellow colleague to receive a Best Imaging Publication award. The recognition is offered by the Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF) to recognize those who utilize NDIIF equipment
Tiny proteins found in the genomes of some types of bacteria are effective weapons against a wide range of other bacteria, opening the door for the development of new therapies in the age of antibiotic resistance, according to new research at the University of Notre Dame.
Dramatic advances in data sciences, machine learning, and scientific computing, as well as the growing ability to collect scientific data, has led to a need for improved predictive modeling and design of complex systems. In order to better characterize the predictability of computational models and product performance, a new research center at the University of Notre Dame, the Center for Informatics and Computational Science (CICS), will develop mathematical, statistical, and scientific computing techniques to address the challenges associated with uncertainty quantification.
Patricia Clark, Rev. John Cardinal O’Hara, C.S.C., Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame, has been awarded a $1.1 million, four-year grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation to develop an innovative approach to replicate in test tubes a universal component of protein folding within cells.
At a few billionths of a meter, a nanopore is too tiny to see and too tiny to image easily. These miniscule cavities, when created in synthetic materials, are incredibly powerful. One of Notre Dame’s research groups is among the earliest to investigate electron transfer reactions inside nanopores, and therefore was invited to share their insights in a perspective paper published in ACS Central Science.
Faculty from the University of Notre Dame will present their research at the Walther Cancer Foundation Symposium on Friday, Feb. 2 to Saturday, Feb. 3, 2018. The two-day event is hosted by the Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) and will take place at the Eck Visitors Center.
Alan Seabaugh, Frank M. Freimann Professor of Electrical Engineering, has been named the director of the University of Notre Dame’s Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano). As the new director, he will lead a center that supports more than seventy NDnano-affiliated faculty members from across nine departments in the Colleges of Engineering and Science to grow the scale and stature of the University’s nanotechnology research efforts.
Research completed at the University of Notre Dame that tracked the maturation of the frog oocyte to an egg, followed by fertilization and progression to the two-cell embryo, provides a valuable foundation for developmental biologists who study the earliest stages of animal development.
The graduate joint annual meeting of the College of Science and the College of Engineering (COSE-JAM) drew 45 poster presentations and 14 oral presentations during the event in Jordan Hall on Friday, Dec. 8. The event, similar to the popular undergraduate College of Science Joint Annual Meeting held each year in May, provides graduate and postdoctoral students the opportunity to present their research to their peers as well as to undergraduate students and faculty.
The Harper Cancer Research Institute (HCRI) has received a $300,000 Institutional Research Grant (IRG) from the American Cancer Society (ACS), which is a renewal of the IRG grant from 2014.
The phrase “larger than life” many times throughout history has been applied to describe the impact of scientific discoveries and revolutionary technologies. At the University of Notre Dame, precision instruments and state-of-the-art facilities, such as the electron microscopy core within the Integrated Imaging Facility, are beginning to fill in gaps and reveal details that are propelling science beyond what is known.
The University of Notre Dame, along with the city of South Bend, the city of Elkhart and various community organizations and businesses, will host Idea Week April 21-28 (Saturday-Saturday) to highlight strides being made in innovation and entrepreneurship in the region and to inspire creative energy for future success.…
Three College of Science faculty members are among eight at Notre Dame to be awarded Luksburg Foundation Collaboration Grants for projects with Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC) faculty in Santiago, Chile.
The study could help researchers identify how to tone down the ability of mycobacteria to cause disease and help them in treating infection.
In the fight against cancer, sometimes all the body needs is a sharper focus to separate the bad cells from the good, and an IDEA Center-backed startup is providing just that.
