While solar technology has been studied by many researchers, few have focused on the community acceptance of solar energy. Professor Kenneth Gillingham will partner with various groups to model the most effective ways to accelerate the diffusion of solar energy.
In his talk at the Yale Law School, U.C. Berkeley Law Professor Andre Guzman offered a variety of realistic scenarios that explored the role rising sea level and melting glaciers play in public health, world peace and contemporary geo-politics.
Yale Chemistry Professor Jonathan Ellman has developed a method for precisely controlling the three-dimensional structure of compounds during synthesis, opening the door to hundreds of new drug candidates.
For over a century, the mouse has been used as a model for human disease, leading to countless insights into human health. Virtually all clinical treatments must first be validated in the mouse before human trials are considered. However, a
Yale’s own Professor Richard Casten goes against the limits of asthma, hiking up 17,000 feet to Mount Everest base camp.
Fat Storage and the Discovery of Lipid Droplets: How Understanding “Basic” Processes Can Lead to More Effective Medical Treatments
The process of how the body stores fat is often thought to be well-studied and characterized. However, Professor Tobias Walther’s research has led to the discovery that there are two different types of lipid droplets in the body that feature dramatic differences and ultimately suggest different treatment options for associated diseases.
From Dust to Dome: Building a Lunar Habitat from 3-D printers, an Inflatable Dome, and Soil From the Moon’s Surface
An architectural firm and a space agency have teamed up to build a lunar colony using an inflatable dome, 3-D printers, and moon dust.
Researchers have uncovered the critical role that gut microbes play in establishing patterns of disease and physiology related to malnutrition.
In his 2011 book, author Michael Nielsen explores the new potential of Open Science and how the movement will shape the way in which scientists collaborate and approach scientific discoveries.
Ian Stewart’s In Pursuit of the Unknown: 17 Equations That Have Changed the World approaches math from a truly novel perspective, emphasizing the link between math and history. The book appeals to audiences of all backgrounds, even catering to the not-so-mathematically-minded.
