Assessing riverside corridors — the "escape routes" for animals under climate change — in the Northwest

University of Washington

Lands surrounding rivers and streams offer natural migration routes that will take on a new importance as temperatures rise. A new, open-access study pinpoints which riverside routes will be the most important for animals trying to navigate a changing climate.

New AI approach bridges the ‘slim-data gap’ that can stymie deep learning approaches

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Scientists have developed a deep neural network that sidesteps a problem that has bedeviled efforts to apply artificial intelligence to tackle complex chemistry – a shortage of precisely labeled chemical data.

It’s all in the twist: Physicists stack 2D materials at angles to trap particles on the nanoscale

University of Washington

In a paper published Feb. 25 in Nature, scientists report that they have developed a system to trap individual excitons — bound pairs of electrons and associated positive charges. This system could form the basis of a novel platform to monitor excitons with precision and develop new quantum technologies.

CASSINI Trial publishes data on preventing blood clots in cancer patients

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center

The first clinical study investigating the use of the direct oral anticoagulant, rivaroxaban, to prevent blood clots in patients with cancer at high-risk published today in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study found no significant reduction in venous thromboembolism or death in the overall 180-day trial period; however, the researchers did observe a lower incidence of these events while patients were actively on the study drug, or during the on-treatment period.
