Methods developed by FAU's numerical relativity group contributed to a recent groundbreaking discovery of merging neutron stars.
FAU research shows what a tiny ant and indigenous cultures can teach medical and scientific communities by solving a medical mystery that has puzzled them for decades.
Why are some children devastated by bullying while others are not? A new study validates how "resilience" differentiates children who just survive bullying from those who thrive when faced with adversity.
Researchers from FAU have conducted the first study to examine the whole body shape and swimming kinematics of two closely related yet very different hammerhead sharks, with some unexpected results.
The first economic study on frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), the most common dementia for people under age 60, shows that FTD inflicts a much more severe burden on families than Alzheimer's disease.
In the aftermath of hurricanes Irma and Harvey, researchers from FAU's College of Engineering and Computer Science have developed a cutting-edge way to gauge the condition of aging timber railroad bridges.
The "Dementia Prevention Initiative" abandons generalized methods used to research and treat Alzheimer's disease. The secret weapon: a novel "N-of-1 design" that personalizes medicine down to a single patient.
A $2.3 million National Institutes of Health grant will help FAU neuroscientists to continue research to better understand and treat several neuropsychiatric disorders including depression and autism.
A new study is the first to show the link between psychological distress and paid sick leave among U.S. workers and illuminates the effects of exacerbated stress on Americans without paid sick leave.
By combining microbiology with engineering technologies, researchers are developing a novel 3D model to study malaria-infected placenta, and have received a $400,000 NIH grant to develop this microsensor.
