Preemies’ Separation from Mom + Physical Stress May Increase Health Risks in Adulthood

A new study suggests that physiological stress in premature infants combined with separation from their mothers may have lasting effects into adulthood. In clinical studies, these factors have been found to increase the risk of obesity and insulin resistance, leading to metabolic disorders such as metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes mellitus.

American Society of Nephrology’s Kidney Week 2017: The Intersection of Basic Science and Clinical Care: The Future of Personalized Nephrology

Washington, DC (September 20, 2017)—The world’s largest gathering of kidney health professionals will join forces in New Orleans from October 31–November 5, 2017, and serve as a major forum for the dissemination of advances in basic, clinical, and translational research as well as advances in clinical practice to the basic science and clinical community during the American Society of Nephrology’s Kidney Week 2017.

Tiny Lasers from a Gallery of Whispers

Whispering gallery mode resonators rely on a phenomenon similar to an effect observed in circular galleries, and the same phenomenon applies to light. When light is stored in ring-shaped or spherical active resonators, the waves superimpose in such a way that it can result in laser light. This week in APL Photonics, investigators report a new type of dye-doped WGM micro-laser that produces light with tunable wavelengths.

Nonlinear Physics Bridges Thoughts to Sounds in Birdsong

Physicist Gabriel Mindlin has been looking at the phenomena from what is one of the most unifying and potentially enlightening perspectives of the issue: the dynamical physics of birds’ vocal organs. In his work, published this week in the journal Chaos, he explores the role of fundamental physics properties in the acoustic complexity of birdsong, and the relationship they have with neural instructions for their production.

Fluorescence Microscopy on a Chip -- No Lenses Required

AIPADV049708-Takehara-contact-fluor-PW.jpg

Fluorescence microscopy gives researchers power to illuminate the tiniest structures and capture the real-time activities of cells by tagging biological molecules with a rainbow of fluorescent dyes. Researchers have developed a system that enables scientists to rapidly image fluorescent cells grown inside the chip using a CMOS image sensor, the same technology found in the camera of a smartphone. The new system, described this week in AIP Advances, has numerous potential uses in biomedical research.
