Hepatoma (liver cancer) blocked by a sugar look-a-like


A sugar (fucose) analog can prevent liver cancer (hepatoma) from invading healthy liver cells.

Solar cells you can put in the wash


Scientists have developed ultra-thin photovoltaic solar cells that can be incorporated into fabric and even washed.

Skipping fatty acids could be recipe for schizophrenia


Prenatal lack of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids linked to epigenetic changes that lead to schizophrenic symptoms in mice.

New rice fights off drought


Researchers have created drought resistant transgenic rice using a gene from a small Eurasian flowering plant

The sound of molecules: NMR-inspired music


Science & art: how NMR works and how NMR spectra have been used to compose music based on molecular structures.

Black smokers and electroecosystems


Black smokers are deep-sea hydrothermal vents found in the ocean. Now scientists believe that they may host electroecosystems in which the primary producers use electric currents as their energy source.

Science communication symposium


Friday I participated in a small symposium that focused on science communication (for institutions in Japan). We discussed using social media as a means to self-publish wow! and amazing! research findings. Here are some of my thoughts about how useful this plays out in Japan.
