Scientists around the world discover how African clawed frogs got extra pair of genes.
Scientists from around the world, including South Korea, Japan, and United States have, for the first time, decoded the complex genetic makeup of the well-known laboratory animal Xenopus laevis, also known as the African clawed frog. The di... Read More
Developing a novel therapeutic strategy that could target distinct pathological factors in AD.
The results are now being published in the renowned scientific journal "Nature Communications".
Despite increasing momentum in Alzheimer’s research, no clearly effective therapeutics against Alzheimer’s disease (AD) exist due to the limited understanding of its multifaceted aetiology. In addition, because of the lack of ch... Read More
Prof. Jeong Min Baik's team presents a new paradigm for scavenging large-scale energy.
Developing a new power generating device via the principles of lightning strikes.
A single bolt of lightning produces a relatively large amount of energy in a short period of time. An international team of researchers, affiliated with UNIST has recently developed a new type of power generating device through the principl... Read More
Developing OSCs that are stable after 60 days under a high temperature environment (120℃).
A new type of organic solar cells (OSCs) with 11.6% efficiency has been developed by a research team, affiliated with UNIST. This solar cell maintained almost 80% of its initial efficiency after 60 days long-term test under elevated tempera... Read More

Baking the graphene oxide for just one second in a microwave oven to produce high-quality graphene.
Graphene, a material that could usher in the next generation of electronic and energy devices, could be closer than ever to mass production, thanks to microwaves. A new study by an international team of researchers from UNIST and Rutgers Un... Read More
A recent quantum mechanical study of graphene by Prof. Kwak and Prof. Ruoff, published in JACS.
Elucidating the intercalation mechanism and pathways for graphene decoupling from the copper substrate.
The graphene films, grown on the copper (Cu) substrates must be detached clean without leaving residue behind, as residual metallic impurities can significantly alter electronic and electrochemical properties of graphene. However, thanks to... Read More
