Data from the US Centers for Disease Control shows that most deaths related to antibiotic resistance occur in healthcare settings such as nursing homes and hospitals. US researchers have created the Regional Healthcare Ecosystem Analyst (RHEA) – a mathematical and computational model designed to track the movement of patients carrying pathogens between healthcare facilities. Read about RHEA’s potential for improving health products and services, and ultimately the lives of millions of people.


The CMS collaboration — one of the two experiments responsible for discovering the Higgs boson at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider — is set to make a significant portion of its data open to the public. The collaboration is also working with Finland’s IT Center for Science to give high-school students access to this data and to enable them to carry out some simple particle-physics analysis.
