COVID-19 patients with Type 2 diabetes who fail to properly manage their blood sugar levels over two to three years are nearly 50% more likely to end up in the intensive care unit compared to those with a more controlled blood sugar history.
People with type 2 diabetes who contract COVID-19 are nearly 50% more likely to wind up in intensive care if they have poorly managed their blood sugar levels over the long-term than those with better long-term glycemic control, according to a study using anonymized health care data.
Scientists like Rick Relyea, executive director of the Darrin Fresh Water Institute in New York, think that reducing the amounts of salt will be the best way to reduce the harm it causes the environment.
In research published Langmuir, a team led by Steven Cramer, an endowed chair professor of chemical and biological engineering, explored the fundamentals of how different molecules interact with various surfaces during the purification process.
There are a lot of tips and tricks out there for getting a good night’s sleep, but researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute say there are also some factors out of our control. Spectrum News 1 reporter Melissa Steininger spoke with Associate Professor Jennifer Hurley to find out what's keeping us up.
Having challenged the idea that our environment cannot alter our genetically controlled 24-hour sleep-wake cycle, circadian rhythm researcher Jennifer Hurley has embarked on a new project tracing the mechanism between environmental signals and the circadian clock.
Faculty from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute served as experts in an exchange of information about developments in the field of sustainable energy, large-scale environmental change, and innovative and interdisciplinary research into energy storage and smart systems in the built environment on a recent visit by two members of the U.S. Congress.
A team including Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute researcher Gaetano Montelione has identified the design principles for creating large “ideal” proteins from scratch, paving the way for the design of proteins with new biochemical functions. The results were published today in Nature Communications.
The Jefferson Project at Lake George — a groundbreaking collaboration between IBM Research, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and The FUND for Lake George — is expanding its statewide leadership role in the study of harmful algal blooms and other water-quality threats this summer with a new $1 million research project on Chautauqua Lake in Chautauqua County, made possible through funding from Chautauqua Institution and a county coalition.
