Florida Atlantic University's College of Engineering and Computer Science will celebrate "Engineers Week 2018: Engineering Reality, From Imagination to Realization" from Monday, Feb. 19 to Friday, Feb. 23.
FAU researchers are the first to document multiple paternity in sea turtle nests and hatchlings to uncover "who are your daddies?" Results of the study are very good news for this female-biased species.
A new study provides the first genetic insight into the evolution of sleep loss and may explain variation in sleep between animal species, or even between individual people.
Lawrence Toll, Ph.D., a renowned scientist whose research focuses on the management of pain and drug addiction through pharmacology and new drug discovery, recently joined FAU.
Male sea turtles are disappearing and not just in Australia. FAU researchers are the first to show why and how moisture in addition to heat affects the development and sex ratios of turtle embryos.
Engineering researchers have received a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for a first-of-its-kind software-defined testbed for real-time undersea wireless communications and surveillance.
Toxic green algal blooms wreaked havoc on Florida's St. Lucie Estuary in 2016. A new study contradicts the widespread misconception that periodic discharges from Lake Okeechobee were responsible.
Disoriented sea turtle hatchlings take hours instead of minutes to get to the ocean from their nests. A new study is the first to test the physiological effects of this extended crawling on swimming ability.
A researcher from the Schmidt College of Medicine is conducting a novel study to figure out if there is a unique genetic signature of patients who are most susceptible to prescription opioid-use disorder.
Randy Blakely, Ph.D. and Amy Wright, Ph.D. have been named NAI Fellows.
