Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is excited to announce a new electric vehicle discount program for the Rensselaer community: Drive Green with National Grid.
In research recently published in Nano Letters, a team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute demonstrated a new way to manipulate tungsten diselenide (WSe2) — a promising two-dimensional material — to further improve its computing and information storage potential.
If doctors could screen for both conditions at the same time, using the same imaging technology, diagnosis could happen sooner and lives could be saved. Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute are working on a project, supported by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) under the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to combine screening for both cardiovascular disease and lung cancer into one low-dose CT scan.
