Juan Hinestroza and his students live in a cotton-soft nano world, where they create clothing that kills bacteria, conducts electricity, wards off malaria, captures harmful gas and weaves transistors into shirts and dresses.
Steve Marschner was selected as the 2015 recipient of the Computer Graphics Achievement Award for modeling natural materials such as hair, skin and fabric.
A noninvasive scan that determines the extent of plaque buildup in the heart predicts the likelihood of heart attack or death over a 15-year period, according to a Weill Cornell Medical College research team.
Weill Cornell Medical College investigators have discovered the precise molecular steps that enable immune cells implicated in certain forms of asthma and allergy to develop and survive in the body.
Cornell polymer engineers have made a mold for nanostructures that can shape liquid silicon out of an organic polymer material, paving the way for perfect, single crystal nanostructures.
Aiming to protect consumers from foodborne illness, produce farmers should wait 24 hours after a rain or irrigating their field to harvest crops - to reduce the risk to a major foodborne pathogen.
At a conference for Cornell IT workers, panelists reviewed the history of computer networking and discussed the role of women in computer science.
Researchers have found that irradiation of material creates nanometer-sized defects that trap swirling eddies in the flow of electrons, keeping them out of the way so more current can flow through superconductors.
Cornell researchers have gained a new insight into the way cells regulate the expression of their genes, and were surprised to find this regulation closely linked to the a cell’s cycle of growth and division.
Weill Cornell Medical College researchers have found that the order in which obese patients with type 2 diabetes eat food matters and may help control glucose levels.
