Researchers find superconducting material that could someday power quantum computers

The material naturally exists between two states, a finding that could pave the way for more complex computing in the future. Quantum computers with the ability to perform complex calculations, encrypt data more securely, and more quickly predict the spread of viruses may be within closer reach thanks to a discovery by Johns Hopkins researchers.

Driving Revolutionary Advances in Cancer Treatment

Though newly approved for treatment of multiple myeloma, CAR T-cell therapy has, over the past few years, created new hope for patients with blood cancers. Researchers are now reviewing its effectiveness in treating solid tumors and brain tumors as well. Armed with the expertise and equipment to conduct numerous clinical trials involving CAR T-cells, the CU Cancer Center is one of the institutions on the leading edge of a revolution in cancer treatment.

Sweating the small stuff: Smartwatch developed at UCLA measures key stress hormone

A UCLA research team has developed a device that could be a major step forward: a smartwatch that assesses cortisol levels found in sweat — accurately, noninvasively and in real time. Described in a study published in Science Advances, the technology could offer wearers the ability to read and react to an essential biochemical indicator of stress.This device opens new possibilities for personal health monitoring.
