This year’s program has been expanded to include a wider range of categories spanning the manufacturing, design engineering, and consumer markets, in addition to science, academia, and government.
Chemical manufacturing is no new endeavor. But a team of Caltech scientists say there are still major breakthroughs to be had — and they’ve recently had one of them. The team has discovered a method for producing a group of silicon-containing organic chemicals — often used in pharmaceuticals and other advanced materials — without relying on expensive precious metals.
Merck, the maker of blockbuster diabetes pill Januvia edged past Wall Street expectations, despite hits to revenue from multiple divestitures, patent expirations and the strong dollar, but its forecast for 2015 came in below Wall Street expectations.
The report, titled "America’s Advanced Industries: What They Are, Where They Are, and Why They Matter," analyzed 50 high-technology industries, from aerospace to foundries to pharmaceuticals. Those sectors employed more than 12 million Americans directly and more than one-quarter of all U.S. jobs when indirect positions were factored in.
This isn't just a case of nifty science. In fact, the research wasn’t as much about processing the egg, as it was about demonstrating the power of the process itself. According to the researchers, the discovery could transform pharmaceutical and food manufacturing.
Puerto Rico is still considered one of the world's leading centers for pharmaceutical manufacturing, but the sector has been shrinking. The U.S. territory has been offering incentives for manufacturing plants to expand and is pushing to diversify its manufacturing base by seeking aerospace and information technology companies.
Harvard University researchers have pioneered a method to produce dramatically larger amounts of chemicals from genetically engineered bacteria. Donald Ingber, founding director of Harvard's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, said the research could substantially impact pharmaceutical, chemical and energy production.
Pfizer continued its aggressive push into the development of new vaccines, announcing the acquisition of a controlling stake in Switzerland's Redvax GmbH on Monday. The privately held company is working on a herpes vaccine for human cytomegalovirus, known as CMV, which infects between 50 percent and 90 percent of adults, according to Pfizer, most of whom show no symptoms.
The traditional round-bottom glass used by chemists for generations could be under threat after Danish scientists invent a new two-chamber flask that can change CO2 into medicine, while protecting against contact with dangerous chemicals. Jim Drury went to see how it worked.
A team of Danish scientists have isolated two chemical compounds within an existing antipsychotic medication that could be used to help failing antibiotics work against killer bacterial infections, such as tuberculosis. Jim Drury went to meet them.
China promised Thursday to speed up imports of pharmaceuticals and medical devices from the United States and enforce its anti-monopoly laws equally among Chinese and foreign companies. Those commitments were announced at an annual trade meeting between the two countries that took place in Chicago.
