After a lengthy premarket approval process, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has just deemed AquAdvantage Salmon, a fast-growing, genetically engineered salmon, safe for human consumption. AquAdvantage Salmon is the first genetically engineered animal designed for human consumption to go to market in the United States.
Thayer Professor Eric Fossum, one of the world's experts in solid-state image sensors, invented technology used in nearly all phone cameras.
It is well known that more men than women hold high-level positions in organisations, and many researchers have attempted to explain the reasons. Professor Isabel Fernandez-Mateo conducted research at an early stage of one hiring process and found evidence that may explain some of the difference. Kyle Pierson reports on contemporary gender segregation.

The phenomenon of thermal fluctuation of a biomembrane within a stack of like membranes was introduced in a pioneering paper [Helfrich W (1978) Z Naturforsch A 33(3):305–315]. Internal energy arises in a representative membrane through elastic resistance to bending deformation, and membrane motion is further restrained through steric interaction with...
Lipid bilayers serve as model surfaces that are often used to understand the behavior of actual cell membranes. Cell adhesion (1, 2), membrane fusion (1), binding-unbinding transition (3), self-assembly, and related phenomena govern an astounding array of biological functions; for example, sperm-egg fusion is the basis of mammalian reproducion (1)....
