Penn Study: Understanding Graphene’s Electrical Properties on an Atomic Level

blurb: 
Graphene is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same; with so few atoms, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function.

Graphene, a material that consists of a lattice of carbon atoms, one atom thick, is widely touted as being the most electrically conductive material ever studied. However, not all graphene is the same. With so few atoms comprising the entirety of the material, the arrangement of each one has an impact on its overall function.

Penn Research Lends New Insights on Conditions for New Blood Vessel Formation

blurb: 
Researchers at Penn have uncovered the existence of a threshold above which fluid flowing through blood vessel walls causes new capillaries to sprout

Angiogenesis, the sprouting of new blood vessels from pre-existing ones, is essential to the body’s development. As organs grow, vascular networks must grow with them to feed new cells and remove their waste. The same process, however, also plays a critical role in the onset and progression of many cancers, as it allows the rapid growth of tumors.
