A study by researchers at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Missouri at Columbia shows in mice that early administration of a potent compound may increase the window of time in which some stroke patients can receive tPA, a therapeutic that dissolves blood clots.
Researchers at the University of Notre Dame have invented a new class of molecules that can be used to simplify the process used for capturing precious metals including gold, platinum, and palladium.
On Friday, May 18, 2018, more than 50 seniors were honored during The Dean’s Awards luncheon held in the Jordan Hall of Science Galleria.
Through the generosity of several donors, the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine is able to provide summer research fellowships to six outstanding Notre Dame undergraduates this summer.
Andrew Grose, who will earn a bachelor of science degree in preprofessional studies with a major in Spanish, has been named valedictorian of the 2018 Notre Dame graduating class. Harisa Spahić, a biochemistry major with minors in anthropology and science, technology and values, is the salutatorian.
The Notre Dame Integrated Imaging Facility (NDIIF) is pleased to announce two awards for best imaging publications for calendar year 2017.
Researchers at the University of Notre Dame focused on an enzyme in gram-negative bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a pathogen that causes pneumonia and sepsis.
Researchers at Notre Dame are developing a renewable energy approach for synthesizing ammonia, an essential component of fertilizers that support the world’s food production needs. The Haber-Bosch process developed in the early 1900s for producing ammonia relies on non-renewable fossil fuels and has limited applications for only large, centralized chemical plants.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced the winners of its 2018 Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP), with 12 University of Notre Dame students and alumni winning the highly coveted award from a pool of national competitors. Another 11 received honorable mention. Overall, 23 current or former Notre Dame students earned recognition from the NSF.
Cool temps did nothing to chill the heated competition among College of Science Shaheen 3MT competitors Tuesday night at Jordan Hall of Science.
Eighteen undergraduate students have been awarded 2018 Slatt Fellowships. The Vincent P. Slatt Endowment for Undergraduate Research in Energy Systems and Processes supports undergraduate researchers who are interested in creating better energy systems and devices or strengthening America’s energy future through the development of policies and infrastructure to support new technologies.
At a few billionths of a meter, a nanopore is too tiny to see and too tiny to image easily. These miniscule cavities, when created in synthetic materials, are incredibly powerful. One of Notre Dame’s research groups is among the earliest to investigate electron transfer reactions inside nanopores, and therefore was invited to share their insights in a perspective paper published in ACS Central Science.
The complexity of the uranium-based mineral, dubbed ewingite, is nearly twice as high as the previous most complex mineral.
Patricia Clark, Rev. John Cardinal O’Hara, C.S.C., Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame, has been awarded a $1.1 million, four-year grant from the W. M. Keck Foundation to develop an innovative approach to replicate in test tubes a universal component of protein folding within cells.
Dr. Timothy Wencewicz (Ph.D. '11), Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Washington University in St. Louis, is the recipient of a 2018 Sloan Research Fellowship.
Norman Dovichi, Grace-Rupley Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, has been named to The Analytical Scientist’s 2017 Power List for his contributions to genomics research.
