The Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation

March 15, 2018

The Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation is a highly competitive prize which honors scientists for their excellent contributions to neuromodulation research.  Neuromodulation is any form of alteration of nerve activity through the delivery of physical (electrical, magnetic, optical) stimulation to targeted sites of the nervous system. Established in 2016, the prize is awarded annually for outstanding research as described in a 1,500 word essay based on research performed in the past three years. The winner of the Science & PINS Prize for Neuromodulation is awarded US$25,000 and publication of his or her essay in Science. The Grand Prize essay and that of the Runner-up are also published on Science Online. The award is announced and presented at a ceremony in September 2018. PINS will provide financial support to help enable the grand prize winner to attend the ceremony. Deadline for submissions: March 15, 2018

FinFETs Shimmy to 5G’s Frequencies

February 15, 2018

Engineers make the fins of 14-nanometer FinFETs acoustically resonate to forge the building block of 5G oscillators, filters, and processor clocks Engineers at Purdue University and GlobalFoundries have gotten today’s most advanced transistors to vibrate at frequencies that could make 5G phones and other gadgets smaller and more energy efficient. The feat could also improve CPU clocks, make wearable radars, and one day form the basis of a new kind of computing. They presented their results today at the IEEE International Solid-States Circuits Conference, in San Francisco.

Immunologic and gene expression profiles of spontaneous canine oligodendrogliomas

February 14, 2018

Professor R. Timothy Bentley, a member of the Purdue Institute for Integrative Neuroscience and Associate Professor, Neurology and Neurosurgery in the Department of Basic Medical Sciences, and his collaborators Margaret Miller, Stephanie A. Thomovsky, Deborah W. Knap, Hock Gan Heng and Aaron Cohen-Gadol (IU) recently published in the Journal of Neuro-Oncology. The research article “Immunologic and gene expression pro les of spontaneous canine oligodendrogliomas; focused on the development of spontaneous brain tumors in pet dogs as a model of human brain tumors, while providing cutting-edge surgery and treatment for these pets. PIIN provided pilot funding to obtain the glioma (brain tumor) tissues and other samples through canine brain tumor surgery.
