Using new analytics to understand tiny mineral crystals, a Yale G&G team has discovered evidence for the effect of volcanic activities on global climate. Because the zircon crystals that were investigated have a particularly long lifetime, this innovative technique carries potential for the future of climate change research.
Nanoparticles offer an alternative treatment for administering drugs to cancer patients with ovarian and uterine carcinomas. Yale researchers have demonstrated the efficacy of drug delivery via a bioadhesive class of these nanoparticles.
Researchers from Yale University and other institutions, headed by Dr. Victoria McCoy, have unearthed the origins of the Tully Monster, a Carboniferous creature with highly unusual morphology.
