Understanding how fully functional LUBAC blocks the cell death pathway can help scientists learn how to treat patients with rare genetic mutations in LUBAC components that impair the enzyme pathway.
A team of South Dakota State University chemistry researchers uncovered how cancer cells utilize a simple sugar residue to disguise themselves from the immune system. What they learned will help scientists develop more effective cancer therapeutics.
Finding out what is motivating social media users during a breaking news event required quick action to get survey on the Jan. event out by Jan. 8.
Scientists working with Landsat satellites used an area in the Research Park at South Dakota State University to take measurements to ensure the accuracy of a new line of U.S. Geological Survey Landsat science products.
A creative idea to fill canisters with melted ice water and then use a railgun to launch them 2 miles into a net has propelled SDSU’s Space Trajectory to Phase II of a NASA design competition.
Assistant professor of mechanical engineering Anamika Prasad will use plants as an inspiration for designing and developing flexible composite materials through a NSF CAREER award.
The multifunctionality build into natural systems, such as shells and exoskeletons,may serve as inspiration for the development of new composites for aerospace applications.
Science teachers learned techniques to study how cells work through a four-day synthetic biology workshop at South Dakota State University. Those lessons, including how mRNA vaccines work, aim to help the teachers get their students excited about cutti…
Two South Dakota State University researchers will develop methods to create a chemical profile that will help determine if a medication is authentic or not–and possibly even trace where the ingredients in illicit drugs come from–as part of the South…
Understanding how a new material helps increase the stability as well as the storage capacity of lithium-ion batteries can help researchers develop high-performance energy storage devices
