Light shines for potential early cancer diagnosis technique
A Northwestern University-led research team has developed a new optical technique that holds promise for minimally invasive screening methods for the early diagnosis of cancer. The researchers have shown for the first time that nanoscale changes are present in cells extremely early on in carcinogenesis. Their simple yet sensitive technique can detect subtle abnormal changes in human colon cancer cells even when those same cells appear normal using conventional microscopy. (2008-12-10)

Palladium catalysts can do it
Palladium catalysts help synthesize key chemicals for many industries. However, direct reaction of two basic reagents, aryl halides and alkyllithium compounds, remains a challenge. Now, a team of scientists have found that a catalyst containing YPhos-type ligands can mediate this reaction even at room temperature. This discovery may contribute to the development of more sustainable processes in the chemical industry, the authors write in the journal Angewandte Chemie. (2020-10-09)

Larry Gardner, chief executive officer of CyberExtruder, a young software development company, presented yesterday the second of two donations to the College of Computing Sciences (CCS) at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). (2005-04-11)

Susan E. Gardiner receives ASHS Outstanding International Horticulturist Award
Susan E. Gardiner has received the ASHS Outstanding International Horticulturist Award from the American Society for Horticultural Science. She has been given the award in recognition of her longstanding and valuable contribution to international horticultural science. Dr. Gardiner will be presented with the award on July 25, 2009, at the annual ASHS conference in St. Louis, Mo. (2009-06-22)

Fracking: Challenges and opportunities
A technology vital for tapping much-needed energy or one that's environmentally destructive? That's the question a panel of experts will explore at the Technology and Society Forum session on fracking April 10, 2013 from 3 - 4:30 p.m. in the Campus Center Ballroom. The NJIT Technology and Society Forum is free and open to the public. (2013-04-03)

Chemical thermometers take temperature to the nanometric scale
Scientists from the Coordination Chemistry Laboratory and Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems, both of the CNRS, recently developed molecular films that can measure the operating temperature of electronic components on a nanometric scale. These patented temperature-sensitive molecules have the distinctive quality of being extremely stable, even after millions of uses. They were presented in an article published in Nature Communications on 17 July 2020, and could soon be deployed in the microelectronics industry. (2020-07-17)

'Performance cloning' techniques to boost computer chip memory systems design
Computer engineering researchers have developed software using two new techniques to help computer chip designers improve memory systems. The techniques rely on 'performance cloning,' which can assess the behavior of software without compromising privileged data or proprietary computer code. (2015-09-30)

Climos chief science officer to speak at NJIT about greenhouse gases
Margaret Leinen, Ph.D., chief science officer and vice president of Climos, will discuss at New Jersey Institute of Technology next week the buildup of atmospheric greenhouse gases over just two centuries. (2007-02-08)

Ancient enzyme morphed shape to carry out new functions in humans
New research led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) reveals that a human enzyme has changed little from its days as a bacterial enzyme. (2016-12-09)

Five times the computing power
Researchers at Linköping University have developed a method to increase by a factor of five the computing power of a standard algorithm when performed in one type of standard chip, FPGA. The new method is both simple and smart, but the road to publication has been long. (2017-07-21)

Sustainability, whale music, plus more highlight upcoming free NJIT lectures
There's something for everyone this spring at NJIT's semi-annual Technology and Society Forum Series. In two weeks, Ralph Izzo, chairman and chief executive officer of Public Service Enterprise Group opens the event with a closer look at sustainability. (2009-01-13)

NJIT announces 2009 AAAS Fellow: Philip R. Goode
Philip R. Goode, Ph.D., a distinguished professor of physics at NJIT and director of Big Bear Solar Observatory, has been awarded the distinction of AAAS Fellow. Election as a Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. (2009-12-17)

Plant cell structure discovery could lead to improved renewable materials
Major steps forward in the use of plants for renewable materials, energy and for building construction could soon arise, thanks to a key advance in understanding the structure of wood. (2015-04-10)

One tree's architecture reveals secrets of a forest, study finds
Behind the dazzling variety of shapes and forms in trees lies a remarkably similar architecture based on fundamental, shared principles, University of Arizona ecologists have discovered. The findings allow scientists to draw realistic conclusions about the ecological impacts of trees across landscapes by sampling just a few individuals. (2013-08-06)

Seminar To Explore Potential Of High-Performance Computing
Reporters and the general public are welcome at a Feb. 9 seminar on the challenges and potential of using massive processing power in computing. The seminar will be held at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, between Baltimore and Washington, D.C. (1999-01-27)

Revolutionary new view on heritability in plants
Complex heritable traits are not only determined by changes in the DNA sequence. Scientists from the University of Groningen Bioinformatics Centre, together with their French colleagues, have shown that epigenetic marks can affect traits such as flowering time and architecture in plants. Furthermore, these marks are passed on for many generations in a stable manner. Their results were published in Science Express on Thursday, 6 February 2014. (2014-02-11)

What rules govern the structure of membraneless organelles?
A study published on Feb. 8 in Nature Communications explores how membraneless organelles (MLOs) or biomolecular condensates, form and organize themselves. The research lays out physical rules controlling the arrangement of various types of synthetic MLOs created using just three kinds of building materials: RNA and two different proteins, a prion-like polypeptide (PLP) and an arginine-rich polypeptide (RRP). (2021-02-08)

New discovery blurs distinction between human cells and those of bacteria
UCLA biochemists reveal the first structural details of a family of mysterious objects called microcompartments that seem to be present in a variety of bacteria, and the first high resolution insights into how they function. The discovery blurs the distinction between eukaryotic cells and those of prokaryotes by showing that bacterial cells are more complex than imagined. (2005-08-09)

Free talk at NJIT: UCLA scientist to outline future of computer networking
Computer scientist Deborah Estrin, Ph.D., professor of computer science at University of California, Los Angeles, will discuss computer networking systems at New Jersey Institute of Technology at 2:30 p.m. March 21, 2007, in the NJIT Campus Center Ballroom. (2007-03-19)
