Bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. A major cause is their overuse in both humans and animals. At the same time, a lack of financial incentives is setting back efforts to discover new classes of antibiotics. The problem is both global and local, and without new initiatives, many common medical conditions could become deadly once again.Read more

Quantum technologies harness the unusual properties of the atomic and subatomic world, where the rules of classical physics do not apply. Properties like entanglement – what Einstein called “spooky action at a distance” – and superposition – where a single particle can exist in multiple states at once – provide remarkable opportunities to push current communications, cryptography, and computing technologies beyond their current limitations. But, what are the latest innovations in quantum research and where are new discoveries taking us?Read more
