A team led by Dr. Fotis Sotiropoulos, used computer modeling to visualize how water flows around the sheets of denticles found on shark skin.
An international collaboration of scientists recently discovered a new particle, a type of tetraquark.
The lab of Matthew Eisaman, Ph.D., stumbled upon these unique properties of graphene when they set out to design more efficient lower cost solar cells.
A research team at Stony Brook University identified that many proteins associated with aging are damaged and destabilized by a process called oxidation.
A research team led by Joanne Davila, Ph.D., identified a factor called “romantic competence” that plays a crucial role in creating and maintaining healthy relationships.
A Stony Brook research team found that some methods used to mitigate oil spills could have negative effects on fish, especially when coupled with other environmental changes.
Electrical waves are crucial to heart cell communication and maintaining rhythm. Scientists have found that light can be used to intricately control these electrical waves.
A project between the computer science and sociology departments at SBU has helped quantify and define the gender disparity in the media called the “paper ceiling.”
“The expected outcome from this project is that anybody who has a pool or a body of water can use his photocatalytic blanket to convert solar energy,” Gouma said.
Interestingly, the lateral position is the most common, suggesting that organisms have evolved over time to prefer the sleeping position that clears brain waste the best.
