Researchers at the University of Notre Dame recently developed an all-optical tabletop technique, called infrared photothermal heterodyne imaging (IR-PHI), that beats normal infrared microscopes by overcoming limitations caused by how tightly light can be focused.
In the face of the continuing threat of the novel coronavirus, and to mitigate its impact on campus, University of Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., announced today a suspension of all in-person classes on campus beginning Monday, March 23, through at least Monday, April 13.
From subcellular structures to ecological communities, life is organized in compartments and modules specialized to perform only specific tasks, and not others. How does this division of labor come about, and what determines if species cooperate in a specialized or generalized fashion?…
Nine University of Notre Dame graduate students will compete for $4,500 in prize money during the annual Shaheen Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition Thursday (March 5) at the Mendoza College of Business.
Sylwia Ptasinska, associate professor of physics and an ND Energy faculty affiliate, was recently named an editor-in-chief for European Physical Journal D (EPJD) effective January 2020. She has served on the journal’s editorial board since 2015.
There are more bacteria in our mouths than the population of people on the planet, and no matter how clean our houses are, they’re brimming with various types of these micro-organisms. Still, despite bacteria’s ubiquitous influence, there’s so much that scientists do not know about them, according to University of Notre Dame chemist Shahriar Mobashery.
While I was working on my Master’s degree, diligently investigating the effects of ozone-induced free radicals on the structure and function of key proteinase inhibitors that prevent oxidative damage to lung tissue, my father was rapidly losing his battle with lung cancer. Phillip Leo ‘Pete’ Stack (Notre Dame class of 1951) did not really have much of a chance at survival in 1986, as the 5-year survival rate for lung cancer was only 13%. Pete joined the unlucky 83% who did not last anywhere near 5 years, and our family watched helplessly as this robust, hilarious, and highly cantankerous 6’6” tall 58-year-old transformed into a skeletal, bald, and weak shadow prior to his death. …
The Notre Dame Institute for Advanced Study (NDIAS) and the Graduate School have launched a year-long fellowship program that aims to help students accelerate their dissertations, develop their research communication skills, and cultivate professional and scholarly networks, all within the context of a vibrant and supportive intellectual community.
At the University of Notre Dame, the Center for Network and Data Science (CNDS) – formerly known as the Interdisciplinary Center for Network Science and Applications (iCeNSA) – brings together faculty and other researchers to generate fundamental transformative advances in artificial intelligence (AI), data science, and network science with interdisciplinary applications in biological sciences, neuroscience, molecular synthesis, health and wellbeing, network science, foundations of computing, physical and transportation systems, and social systems.
The European Physical Journal D: Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Plasma Physics (EPJD) has announced that Prof Sylwia Ptasinska of the University of Notre Dame has been appointed as an Editor-in-Chief for EPJ…
A paper published in 2017 from M. Sharon Stack, the Anne F. Dunne and Elizabeth Riley Director of the Harper Cancer Research Institute at the University of Notre Dame, has been selected as a featured article in the special virtual issue of the Journal of Biological Chemistry that highlights cancer research.
Biophysics faculty members, Jun Li, associate professor in the department of Applied and Computational Mathematics and Statistics and Olaf Wiest, professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, are two of four College of Science faculty members awarded a two-year grant through the National Science Foundation (NSF), that will establish the creation of a pool of new computer nodes dedicated to providing researchers with new high performance technology for quicker speeds.
The University of Notre Dame is bolstering cyberinfrastructure that will support greater access to machine learning.
The Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University and the Harper Cancer Research Institute are pleased to announce a collaboration designed to catalyze interdisciplinary translational research.
Ten years after AD&T was formed, the combined efforts of many people who shared in one professor's vision have propelled Notre Dame to 13th in the nation for analytical chemistry, according to a recent U.S. News and World Report ranking of the best graduate school programs.
