Scientists pioneer new method of measuring electricity in cells

The complex dance of electrical signals inside a cell holds the key to many questions about diseases and disorders, but has been difficult to understand—so a team of UChicago scientists invented a way to listen in.

How a material conducts electricity better

The research, has thrived in the fascinating world of topology, an abstract discipline that gives a potent… handle to some of the most exotic properties of matter. In this way, scientists at the School of Trieste have investigated how to estimate the charge transport and the currents in generic ionic fluids rigorously, in line with […]
