While eating and drinking, we can only taste and smell our food when we exhale. A collaboration between Yale School of Medicine’s Shepherd Laboratory, the Mechanical Engineering faculty, and the Center for Engineering Innovation and Design reveals the physiological phenomenon behind this.
Sunscreen That Blocks More Than Sun: How a Small-But-Mighty Nanoparticle is Revolutionizing Sun Protection
Think you’re beach ready? Read this first! Yale researchers have developed a new sunblock formula which, unlike typical sunblock, does not sink into the skin and alter DNA.
Researchers at Yale use organic chemistry techniques to answer critical biological questions, such as how drug-resistant bacteria evade the immune system.
Yale Professor Andre Taylor’s research into molding and modifying bulk metallic glass nanostructures has succeeded in creating cheaper and more effective electrocatalytic surfaces, with potential applications in fuel cells and other energy technologies.
Focusing a laser beam on priceless pieces of art doesn’t initially sound like the best idea, but its surprising application for cleaning could ensure the preservation of masterpieces for generations to come.
Could the air around us soon power our planes, trains, and automobiles? Several companies are now manufacturing diesel fuel from ambient carbon dioxide, and may soon be able to do so on a commercial scale.
March marked the 10th anniversary of a Yale program that exposes young students to science. For the past decade, Science on Saturdays has featured exciting demos and renowned science experts as guest speakers.
Evolution as we know it is driven by mutations in genes. But researchers at Yale were curious about what surrounds a gene. That is, how does a whole gene network evolve?
A team of Yale researchers has recently demonstrated that a new technique allows for the manipulation of electron orbitals, and consequently paves the way for the fine-tuning of atomic properties.
A simple code dictates how DNA is translated into proteins in all living things. Scientists have long thought of these translations as universal, but lately, a few exceptions have come to light. Now, researchers at Yale are probing how and why the genetic code might change.
