This eBriefing documents the 8th condensed matter physics conference featuring keynote talks in hard matter and soft matter as well as a special panel discussion, "Generation Tech: Tapping NYC's Science & Engineering Talent," featuring representatives of the new engineering and applied science institutions that are being created in the city.
A recent conference held at the Academy asked a downright outrageous question: Can dementia be prevented by making changes to your diet? In this podcast we look at what the answers might be.
In the second of a two-part series, experts look at the links between health and nutrition. They examine everything from how nutrition impacts hospital stays, to cancer and aging, to developing food science innovations, and improving diet.
In this first of a two-part series, experts from various sectors explore the available options to reduce "hidden hunger"—micronutrient deficiencies in a population.
