Chilling Precision: Cooling and trapping molecules with lasers

Researchers at Yale have developed a technique to cool down and levitate molecules in space, enabling new experiments that could revolutionize our understanding of fundamental physics.

Cracking The Code of mRNA Regulation

Yale researchers have developed a technique to decode a heretofore-undeciphered language – that which governs the survival and destruction of our transcriptomes.

SNAREs: Optimizing Membrane Fusion Understanding the importance of fusion activation energy

A recent measurement of the activation energy of spontaneous membrane fusion has important implications for understanding how membrane fusion is optimized in cells.

Bat Bot Takes Flight

The flight patterns and agility of bats have long fascinated scientists. Now, a team of researchers have created a fully self-contained, autonomous flying robot that weighs 93 grams, called Bat Bot (B2), that mimics the morphological properties of bat wings and has important implications for animal flight analysis.

A Fatty, Hairy Secret: How fat, hair, and sweat help heal wounds

Studying the center of certain types of wounds shows how skin with fat, hair, and sweat glands actually are the key to healing wounds. This could offer new insight into the way we treat serious wounds!

Needle in a HAYSTAC

The HAYSTAC dark matter detection device probes the universe for radio waves that would confirm the existence of axions, a particle that could account for 80% of the mass in our universe.

A “Beta” Way to Treat Type I Diabetes: A Sweet Discovery

Diabetes is caused by the immune system’s attack on its own beta cells. Yale researchers have uncovered a population of beta cells resistant to these immune attacks, providing hope for those with Type I diabetes.

It’s Not Just in Your Head

Yale researchers have discovered a method of identifying prenatally damaged neurons that become susceptible to mental disorders after birth.

Life from Within? Organic Materials Stemming from Ceres’ Interior

For hundreds of years, researchers have thought that organic materials reach planets by traveling on asteroids and comets. New data from the Dawn Spacecraft on the dwarf planet Ceres leads to a surprising result: instead of coming from the outside, organics may sometimes come from within.
