Artificial light pollution raises concern for human and wildlife wellbeing

Jenny Ouyang, associate professor in the College of Science’s Department of Biology grew up in Xi’an, a large, brightly lit city in China. According to Ouyang, by 2025, over 80% of the world’s population will live under light polluted skies, which raises concern for human and wildlife well-being. Her background and the increased light pollution … Read more

CSUN Marine Biologists Get Grant to Study Effectiveness of California’s Artificial Reefs

The Wheeler North Reef — among the world’s largest artificial reefs built to mitigate environmental impacts — was constructed off the San Clemente coast starting in the late 1990s as a way to mitigate the harmful impact the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station was having on local marine life. CSUN marine biologists Kerry Nickols … Read more

Technique based on artificial intelligence detects Chagas disease using

When Brazilian immunologist Helder Nakaya visited Evandro Chagas Institute in Belém (the capital of Pará state, Brazil) in 2017, there was a commotion because one of its best microscopists was retiring and much of the knowledge used for fast and accurate identification of the protozoan Leishmania would be lost. When Brazilian immunologist Helder Nakaya visited … Read more

Inspired by nature, artificial microtubules can work against a current to transport tiny cargoes

Like a microscopic bucket bridge, an artificial microtubule can rapidly transport tiny particles along magnetic stepping stones, delivering them to a precise location even when operating against a strong current. Credit: Adapted from Gu, H., Hanedan, E., Boehler, Q. et al. Artificial microtubules for rapid and collective transport of magnetic microcargoes. Nat Mach Intell (2022). … Read more

Malignant or benign? Quick and accurate diagnosis with artificial tactile neurons – BIOENGINEER.ORG

The stiffness levels and distributions of various biological materials reflect disease-related information, from cells to tissues. For example, malignant breast tumors are usually stiffer and have a more irregular shape than benign breast tumors. Ultrasound elastography can non-invasively determine the degree and shape of the tissue stiffness and is used for diagnosing breast cancer owing … Read more
