Math model designed to replace invasive kidney biopsy for lupus patients
(Ohio State University) Mathematics might be able to reduce the need for invasive biopsies in patients suffering kidney damage related to the autoimmune disease lupus.

Ebola outbreak 'out of all proportion' and severity cannot be predicted
(University of Warwick) A mathematical model that replicates Ebola outbreaks can no longer be used to ascertain the eventual scale of the current epidemic, finds research conducted by the University of Warwick.Dr. Thomas House, of the University's Warwick Mathematics Institute, developed a model that incorporated data from past outbreaks that successfully replicated their eventual scale.

Nobel laureate to give talk at UC Riverside
(University of California - Riverside) Randy Schekman, one of the winners of the 2013 Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine, will give a presentation at the University of California, Riverside on Sept. 24 -- the keynote address at the inaugural 'Riverside Postdoctoral Association Symposium 2014.' The symposium, which takes place Sept. 23-24, will showcase research done by UC Riverside postdoctoral researchers from a number of academic disciplines. Sponsored by the UCR Graduate Division, the free symposium is open to the public.

Run, cheetah, run
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) A new algorithm enables MIT cheetah robot to run and jump, untethered, across grass.

The science behind swimming
(Harvard University) Using simple hydrodynamics, a team of researchers led by Mahadevan was able to show that a handful of principles govern how virtually every animal -- from the tiniest fish to birds to gigantic whales propel themselves though the water.

Nature: New drug blocks gene driving cancer growth
(University of Colorado Denver) When active, the protein called Ral can drive tumor growth and metastasis in several human cancers including pancreatic, prostate, lung, colon and bladder. Unfortunately, drugs that block its activity are not available. A study published today in the journal Nature uses a novel approach to target the activation of these Ral proteins.

Decoding 'sweet codes' that determine protein fates
(National Institutes of Natural Sciences) The research group lead by Professor Koichi Kato of the Institute for Molecular Science, National Institutes of Natural Sciences developed a methodology for quantitatively describing the dynamic behaviors of complicated sugar chains in solution at atomic resolution by combining a sophisticated NMR spectroscopic approach with an ingenious molecular dynamics simulation technique. This study has just been published in Angewandte Chemie International Edition (published online on Sept.4, 2014).

Unemployment for doctoral scientists and engineers below national average in 2013
(National Science Foundation) A new National Science Foundation report says the 2013 unemployment rate for individuals with research doctoral degrees in science, engineering and health fields was one-third the rate for the general population aged 25 and older -- 2.1 percent versus 6.3 percent.

Getting hot and wet in Vermont
(University of Vermont) A fundamental challenge of climate change forecasting is how to bridge the gap between global-scale models and local impacts. A new study -- the first-of-its kind for the Lake Champlain region -- bridges this gap and forecasts that northern Vermont and southern Quebec by 2100 will get eight degrees Fahrenheit hotter; Burlington, Vt., will experience 10 more days in July above 90; and ski resorts will see 50 percent less snowfall.

Fluid mechanics suggests alternative to quantum orthodoxy
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology) MIT researchers find new math explains dynamics of fluid systems that mimic many peculiarities of quantum mechanics.
