First comprehensive meshfree numerical simulation of skeletal muscle tissue achieved
(University of California - San Diego) Engineers at the University of California, San Diego, have completed the first comprehensive numerical simulation of skeletal muscle tissue using a method that uses the pixels in an image as data points for the computer simulation -- a method known as mesh-free simulation.The researchers, led by J.S. Chen, a professor of structural engineering at the Jacobs School of Engineering at UC San Diego, presented their findings on the development of this method at the CompIMAGE'14 conference in Pittsburgh this month.

Power plant standards could save thousands of US lives every year
(Harvard School of Public Health) Power plant standards to cut climate-changing carbon emissions will reduce other harmful air pollution and provide substantial human health benefits, according to a new study.

Keystone Symposia launches 2014-2015 meeting series with Global Health Vaccines Conference
(Keystone Symposia on Molecular & Cellular Biology) Keystone Symposia will convene the first conference of its 2014-2015 season and the first in its 2014-15 Global Health Series at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel -- immediately following the conclusion of the Grand Challenges Meeting for that program's grantees. The four-day conference is part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, which has also funded travel awards for 36 investigators from developing countries to attend.

Rating the planet's oceans
(University of California - Santa Barbara) Researchers from UCSB's National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis helped produce the first Ocean Health Index that includes all the Earth's oceans.

UMD receives inaugural BRAIN Initiative Award
(University of Maryland) University of Maryland and National Institutes of Health researchers received a three-year $1.7 million grant from the NIH to develop new imaging technologies and data analysis techniques that will further our understanding of how large networks of neurons in the brain interact to process sensory information. This knowledge will help researchers identify the precise interactions between millions of nerve cells that drive behavior and alterations in these interactions that may be responsible for brain disorders.

The cultural side of science communication
(Northwestern University) Do we think of nature as something that we enjoy when we visit a national park and something we need to 'preserve?' Or do we think of ourselves as a part of nature? A bird's nest is a part of nature, but what about a house? The answers to these questions reflect different cultural orientations. They are also reflected in our actions, our speech and in cultural artifacts, according to a new Northwestern University study.

Salk scientists receive $3 million for BRAIN Initiative grant
(Salk Institute) This 3-year award will advance a novel approach to understanding the brain.

Disease decoded: Gene mutation may lead to development of new cancer drugs
(University of Michigan) The discovery of a gene mutation that causes a rare premature aging disease could lead to the development of drugs that block the rapid, unstoppable cell division that makes cancer so deadly

NIH taps lab to develop sophisticated electrode array system to monitor brain act
(DOE/Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory) The National Institutes of Health awarded Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory a grant today to develop an electrode array system that will enable researchers to better understand how the brain works through unprecedented resolution and scale.

High-speed drug screen
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have devised a way to rapidly test hundreds of different drug-delivery vehicles in living animals, making it easier to discover promising new ways to deliver a class of drugs called biologics, which includes antibodies, peptides, RNA, and DNA, to human patients.
