Using artificial intelligence, Cornell engineers have simplified models that accurately gauge the fine particulate matter in urban air pollution – exhaust from cars and trucks that get into human lungs.
A new method can illuminate the identities and activities of cells throughout an organ or a tumor at unprecedented resolution, according to a study co-led by researchers at Weill Cornell Medicine and the New York Genome Center.
The researchers used a machine-learning algorithm to spot symptom patterns in the health records of nearly 35,000 U.S. patients who tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection and later developed lingering long-COVID-type symptoms.
Those already pregnant at the beginning of the pandemic had a 50% lower exposure to SARS-CoV-2 compared with those who became pregnant after the pandemic began and the general population, Weill Cornell researchers and colleagues found.
A Cornell-based database of “runaway ads” placed by enslavers in 18th- and 19th-century U.S. newspapers was the starting point for a new song cycle entitled “Songs in Flight” that will premiere Jan. 12 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Weill Cornell Medicine has been awarded a five-year, $7.8 million grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute to study whether the antibiotic doxycycline may slow the progression of emphysema in people living with well-controlled HIV.
