  • Wed, 21 Jul 2021 21:26:58 +0000: Exoskeletons have a problem: They can strain the brain - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Exoskeletons - wearable devices used by workers on assembly lines or in warehouses to alleviate stress on their lower backs - may compete with valuable resources in the brain while people work, canceling out the physical benefits of wearing them, a new study suggests.
  • Wed, 21 Jul 2021 14:22:54 +0000: Cancer: Information theory to fight resistance to treatments - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    A major challenge in cancer therapy is the adaptive response of cancer cells to targeted therapies. Although this adaptive response is theoretically reversible, such a reversal is hampered by numerous molecular mechanisms that allow the cancer cells to adapt to the treatment. A team has used information theory, in order to objectify in vivo the molecular regulations at play in the mechanisms of the adaptive response and their modulation by a therapeutic combination.
  • Mon, 19 Jul 2021 14:31:06 +0000: The mathematics of repulsion for new graphene catalysts - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Scientists at Tohoku University and colleagues in Japan have developed a mathematical model that helps predict the tiny changes in carbon-based materials that could yield interesting properties.
  • Mon, 19 Jul 2021 14:30:27 +0000: Mathematical models and computer simulations are the new frontiers in COVID-19 drug trials - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    Researchers are using computer models to simulate COVID-19 infections on a cellular level which allows for virtual trials of drugs and vaccines, opening the possibility of pre-assessment for drug and vaccine efficacy against the virus.
  • Tue, 13 Jul 2021 15:08:19 +0000: Mathematical model predicts the movement of microplastics in the ocean - Mathematics News -- ScienceDaily
    New research has identified the processes that underpin the trajectories of microplastics below the ocean surface. The authors analyzed how biofouling -- the accumulation of algae on the surface of microplastics -- impacts the vertical movement of buoyant particles.
