A research team led by Shree K. Nayar, T.C. Chang Professor of Computer Science at Columbia Engineering, has invented a prototype video camera that is the first to be fully self-powered—it can produce an image each second, indefinitely, of a well-lit indoor scene.
The first-ever systematic study of the genomes of patients with ALK-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL), a particularly aggressive form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL), shows that many cases of the disease are driven by alterations in the JAK/STAT3 cell signaling pathway.
There are few things more frustrating than being on an online real-time phone call when it suddenly gets the jitters, your caller’s voice doesn’t match up to her facial expressions, and your conversation doesn’t sync correctly. Gamers are infuriated when sudden lags cause them to lose at what they’ve been playing for hours.
A cellular defect that can impair the body’s ability to handle high glucose levels and could point the way to a potential new treatment for diabetes has been identified by Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) researchers.
A test that detects fetal DNA in the mother’s bloodstream is more accurate than conventional screening at identifying Down syndrome (aka trisomy 21), finds a new study led by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center and UCSF.
Nearly 50 years after the “war on cancer” was declared in the United States, precision medicine presages an era of increased understanding of the molecular basis of cancer and of the ability to design treatments tailored to a patient’s own genetic profile, a panel of experts said Tuesday at a briefing sponsored by Columbia University.
If companies knew how much money could be saved by going green it might be easier to design products that use less energy, water, and other resources. That’s the idea behind new software developed at Columbia University, and expanded upon by CoClear, a Harlem-based startup.
Though it’s true that the committee has recommended dropping advice to limit cholesterol intake, eggs still have plenty of saturated fat and should be eaten in moderation, says David Seres, MD, associate professor of medicine and director of medical nutrition at Columbia University Medical Center.
