Fermilab-led microelectronics codesign team works to develop a state-of-the-art particle detector

Particle accelerators and detectors are the workhorses of researchers plumbing the depths of the quantum realm. Each update gives scientists more opportunities to study the building blocks of our universe. Now, a unique collaboration of researchers, led by research engineer Davide Braga of the US Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, is designing and … Read more

More potent than SSRIs Scientists develop two new drug candidates that could treat addiction and depression

Brain mental health boost concept

Scientists have developed two new drug candidates, inspired by a traditional African psychedelic medicinal plant called ibogaine, that can potentially treat addiction and depression in mice by targeting the serotonin transporter. These compounds mimic the desirable effects of ibogaine without its side effects, and more testing is underway to explore their therapeutic potential. The targeted … Read more
