Research Reveals Impact of Cholesterol Crystals in Heart Attacks

At Michigan State University’s Department of Medicine, Chief Cardiologist Dr. George Abela has made life-changing discoveries in understanding the role of cholesterol crystals in heart attacks. His use of unique fixation techniques and scanning electron microscopy have aided his research, revealing that the crystals form from fat, calcium, and other substances that expand in volume when going from a liquid to a solid state.

Scientists image one of the largest viruses on the planet

Researchers retrofitted a transmission electron microscope with a cryostage, a device used to keep biological samples frozen in liquid nitrogen. Scientists used the JEOL cryo-electron microscope to map the Samba virus and observe it as the virus invaded an amoeba.

Unexpected, Star-Spangled Find May Lead to Advanced Electronics

In an article published online March 10 in the journal Advanced Materials, Dr. Moon Kim and his colleagues describe a material that, when heated to about 450 degrees Celsius, transforms from an atomically thin, two-dimensional sheet into an array of one-dimensional nanowires, each just a few atoms wide.

Synthetic Drug Use in Virginia Varies Dramatically Depending on Where You Live

If you think synthetic drugs are a "city" problem, think again. Police in Virginia say deadly variations are popping up all over the state in places you might not expect.
