How short circuits in lithium metal batteries can be prevented

19 January, 2021 - Chalmers tekniska högskola

There are high hopes for the next generation of high energy-density lithium metal batteries, but before they can be used in our vehicles, there are crucial problems to solve. An international research team led by Chalmers University of Technology, has now developed concrete guidelines for how the batteries should be charged and operated, maximising efficiency while minimising the risk of short circuits.

Disrupted immune cell navigation in lymph nodes of breast cancer patients

13 January, 2021 - Uppsala universitet

In breast cancer, tumours of different types have divergent effects on the functioning of the lymph nodes. In patients with invasive breast cancer, the blood vessels and supporting tissue of the lymph nodes change, but this does not occur in patients with a non-invasive form of breast cancer. This is shown in a new study from Uppsala University, published online in the scientific journal Cancers.

New studies support blood test for early detection of Alzheimer’s disease

13 January, 2021 - Göteborgs universitet

In three recent publications in Molecular Psychiatry, Brain and JAMA Neurology researchers from the University of Gothenburg provide convincing evidence that an in-house developed blood test for Alzheimer’s disease can detect the disease early and track its course, which has major implications for a potential use in clinical practice and treatment trials. “This is an […]

Low fitness linked to higher psoriasis risk later in life

12 January, 2021 - Göteborgs universitet

In a major register-based study, scientists at University of Gothenburg, Sweden, have now demonstrated a connection between inferior physical fitness in young adults and elevated risk of the autoimmune disease psoriasis. For the male recruits to compulsory military training who were rated as the least fit, the risk of developing psoriasis later was 35 percent higher than for the fittest.
