Researchers have found that diets that are rich in plant-based foods and low in red meat and sugar-sweetened beverages are associated with a reduced risk of cognitive impairment in old age.
Researchers from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore uncovered an enzyme which could serve as a potential biomarker for 'natural killer T cell lymphoma' and could lead to new targeting routes for treatment.
The NUS system, called Apache SINGA, enables users globally to use free software to develop cutting-edge AI solutions such as image recognition, disease prediction and advanced malware detection.
A team of engineers from NUS has developed a highly sensitive system that uses a smartphone to detect the presence of toxin-producing algae in water within 15 minutes.
Complicated operations like skull reconstruction and hip replacement could receive a fillip through a new tie-up. The NUS Centre for Additive Manufacturing wants to get certification for its 3D-printed implants to be used in humans and has partnered TÜV SÜD, a German safety and quality multinational.
This corallimorpharian (Corynactis sp.) with tentacles and mouth protruding was found at Pulau Ubin as part of a study to establish the diversity and distribution of corallimorpharians in Singapore.
A ‘triangulene’ molecule, observed with a Scanning Tunnelling Microscope and a Non-Contact Atomic Force Microscope, was synthesised by NUS chemists fusing 15 benzene rings together. These molecules could be used in the development of next generation molecular spintronic devices.
Using theoretical equations, NUS researchers have predicted locations of atomic defects in the 2D material WSe2 (right) and confirmed their position (left). This breakthrough reveals the origins of certain light emission properties in WSe2 and may improve optical performances in other 2D materials.
