PHILADELPHIA — For tens of thousands of years, the genomes of malaria parasites and humans have been at war with one another. Now, University of Pennsylvania geneticists, in collaboration with an international team of scientists, have developed a new picture of one way that the human genome has fought back.
PHILADELPHIA — The Field Center for Children’s Policy, Practice & Research at the University of Pennsylvania is unveiling a prototype for its Information Portability Project during its fourth biennial “One Child, Many Hands: A Multidisciplinary Conference on Child Welfare,” Wednesday, June 8-10, at Penn’s Wharton School.
PHILADELPHIA — The University of Pennsylvania is accepting applications for its Academic Diversity Postdoctoral Fellowship Program.
Penn Study Shows Size, Strength of Heart's Right Side Varies Between Age, Genders, Racial/Ethnic Groups
Researchers at the Raymond and Ruth Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have shown that the size and pumping ability of the right side of the heart differs by age, gender and racial/ethnic groups.
PHILADELPHIA — Electrical engineers have long been toying with the idea of designing biological molecules that can be directly integrated into electronic circuits. University of Pennsylvania researchers have developed a way to form these structures so they can operate in open-air environments, and, more important, have developed a new microscope technique that can measure the electrical properties of these and similar devices.
PHILADELPHIA — The states face major changes as they prepare to bring the recently adopted Common Core Standards into their schools, according to a study from the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.
PHILADELPHIA — Dogs with smushed-in noses may be adorable, but that distinctive short nose can lead to respiratory distress and disease, hospital visits and sometimes the need to receive mechanical assistance just to breathe. Fortunately, a study by researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine shows that these dogs do just as well as their longer-nosed kin during mechanical ventilation procedures.
PHILADELPHIA — Engineering structures on the smallest possible scales — using molecules and individual atoms as building blocks — is both physically and conceptually challenging. An interdisciplinary team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania has now developed a method of computationally selecting the best of these blocks, drawing inspiration from the similar behavior of proteins in making biological structures.
