Negative emissions, positive economy
Negative emissions, positive economy The long-term goals of the Paris Agreement — keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius and ideally 1.5 C in order to avert the worst impacts of climate change — may not be achievable by greenhouse gas emissions-reduction measures ...
Job connectivity improves resiliency in US cities, study finds
Job connectivity improves resiliency in US cities, study finds What makes urban labor markets more resilient? This is the question at the heart of a new study published in Nature Communications by members of MIT’s Connection Science Group. The researchers in this study, including MIT research scientist and Universidad ...
One-stop machine learning platform turns health care data into insights
One-stop machine learning platform turns health care data into insights Over the past decade, hospitals and other health care providers have put massive amounts of time and energy into adopting electronic health care records, turning hastily scribbled doctors' notes into durable sources of information. But collecting these data is less ...
SMART researchers develop 15-minute immune-profiling assay
SMART researchers develop 15-minute immune-profiling assay Researchers from Critical Analytics for Manufacturing Personalized-Medicine (CAMP), an interdisciplinary research group at the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SMART), MIT’s research enterprise in Singapore, have developed a new label-free immune profiling assay that profiles the rapidly changing host ...
A better nasal swab for Covid-19 testing
A better nasal swab for Covid-19 testing Over nearly seven years researching 3D printing systems in MIT’s Media Lab, Jifei Ou SM ’14, PhD ’19 began to suspect the work could lead to better products. He never could have imagined it would help address supply shortages caused ...
A safer way to deploy bacteria as environmental sensors
A safer way to deploy bacteria as environmental sensors In recent years, scientists have developed many strains of engineered bacteria that can be used as sensors to detect environmental contaminants such as heavy metals. If deployed in the natural environment, these sensors could help scientists track how pollutant levels ...
Study reveals uncertainty in how much carbon the ocean absorbs over time
Study reveals uncertainty in how much carbon the ocean absorbs over time The ocean’s “biological pump” describes the many marine processes that work to take up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and transport it deep into the ocean, where it can remain sequestered for centuries. This ocean pump is a powerful regulator ...
