Florida aims to become regional alternative jet fuels hub

Florida wants to establish a biofuel supply chain based around Brassica carinata, a non-edible plant that has already been used to produce 100 percent bio-derived jet fuel.

New assay to detect proteins on cell lung cancer: Interview Special

Antwerp - Researchers have presented new data from the BluePrint 2 project that demonstrates progress towards a standardized assay to detect PD-L1 proteins on non-small cell lung cancer. To understand more about this, we spoke with Christopher Ung of HistoGeneX.

Blue Origin stuns aerospace sector with its BE-4 rocket engine

Kent - Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space venture says it has successfully test-fired its BE-4 rocket engine, bringing the company one step closer to flying tourists into sub-orbit, and possibly even beyond.

Computerized brain training tackles bipolar disorder: Interview Special

A new study from Harvard University and McLean Hospital is the first to show that a type of computerized brain training can drive gains in measures of cognition among patients with bipolar disorder. To find out more, we spoke with the researchers.

First joint France-China satellite to study oceans
