Using a large repository of blood samples from military personnel, PNNL and Uniformed Services University scientists have discovered a group of 13 proteins that could provide early detection of head and neck cancers.
The Ocean Observing Prize is a competitive incentive program to help inventors advance new concepts for marine energy technologies that can power ocean observing systems, particularly those that inform us about hurricane formation.
PNNL deployed two research buoys in waters off the West Coast for the first time in deep water, supporting a DOE and Bureau of Ocean Energy Management effort to gather measurements that support offshore wind locations and technnologies.
The nation’s ability to test for COVID-19 has expanded, thanks to work at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, where scientists have established the performance of testing equipment to detect the virus.
Researchers from PNNL have helped colleagues at OHSU identify lipid molecules required for Zika infection in human cells. The specific lipids involved could also be a clue to why the virus primarily infects brain tissue.
Their consistency and predictability makes tidal energy attractive, not only as a source of electricity but, potentially, as a mechanism to provide reliability and resilience to regional or local power grids.
