Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology have sued the Trump administration in federal court to block an order that would mean all international students not attending in-person classes would be stripped of visas. Read more
HAMR-JR can’t climb up the waterspout yet but it can run, jump, and carry heavy payloads, making it one of the most dexterous microrobots to date. The post HAMR-JR, coin-sized robot by harvard researchers inspired by a cockroach appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
A new study, led by scientists from Harvard University, is offering more compelling evidence of a link between the development of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and the gut microbiome. One researcher described the discovery as “remarkable”, after finding genetically identical mice displayed different health outcomes determined by their specific gut bacteria communities.Continue ReadingCatego
Both the now-infamous horror game Devotion and Red Candle†™s previous horror entry Detention have been added to the Harvard-Yenching Library. ...
A team of Harvard scientists has finally solved the mystery of how acute stress causes hair to turn gray. The researchers discovered when stress triggers the "fight or flight" response, it depletes pigment-producing stem cells in hair follicles.
Researchers have incorporated living microbes into 3D printed objects. The resin material is embedded with chemical “instructions” that tell a layer of microbes to fluoresce in particular colors, producing a stunning array of patterns and designs.
It sure sounds like an online pop-up ad, but Harvard scientists have created and tested a new treatment that melts away body fat. The new technique involves injecting an icy saline solution directly into fat deposits to shrink them by half.
Scientists could almost build a whole mini-body out of the mini-organs that have been grown over the last few years. But cell development has traditionally been tricky to study, thanks largely to the difficulty in getting sensors in there without damaging the organs. Now, researchers from Harvard have developed a way to create "cyborg organoids" by integrating nanoelectronics into cell cul
Researchers with Harvard University's John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have published a study detailing the creation of a tiny camera that presents the world as it is seen by some insects and shrimp—polarized. Whereas humans are unable to see polarization, some tiny creatures are able to, an experience replicated by Harvard researchers with a small, portable camer
Architecture firm Barkow Leibinger has covered this experimental arts hub at Harvard University in polycarbonate panels to make it illuminate like a "lightbox at night".
