Russell Honored with Shull Prize in Neutron Science – UMass News and Media Relations

§ June 19th, 2020 § Filed under Nanotech Comments Off on Russell Honored with Shull Prize in Neutron Science – UMass News and Media Relations

Professor Thomas P. Russell, polymer science and engineering, was recently honored by the Neutron Scattering Society of America with its highest honor, the Clifford G. Shull Prize in Neutron Science, for his pivotal role in the application of neutron reflectivity and small-angle neutron scattering to polymer science and his important work on behalf of the neutron scattering community.

The prize is named in honor of Shull, who received the Nobel Prize in 1994 with Bert Brockhouse for seminal developments in the field of neutron science.

Russell says, I was truly honored with this recognition and was happy to have been able to have made a significant contribution to the field that has advanced our understanding of long-chain molecules in thin film and at surfaces and interfaces. It was equally rewarding to have worked with outstanding scientists at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and a talented group of post-doctoral fellows and graduate students.

Scientists can measure the arrangement of polymers in a material and how they behave at a surface or interface by directing a neutron beam from a reactor or other source into the material, or bouncing the neutron off the surface and measuring how the scattered or reflected neutrons change with angle. Russell pioneered the use of neutron reflectivity and, with Gian Felcher at ANL and Charles Majkrzak and Sushil Satija at NIST, built the first neutron reflectometers. These instruments are now standard at every neutron source around the world, he notes. The technique produces information with unprecedented spatial resolution that cannot be obtained otherwise.

Specifically, Russell explains that neutrons have the ability to see individual polymer chains in bulk and in solution by substituting deuterium for hydrogen. Neutrons have an incredible penetration power, he adds, able to pass easily through thick glass or metals such as aluminum. The contrast between hydrogen and deuterium atoms one of the largest between any atoms unlocks the power of neutrons to see a polymer chain.

Russell has used neutron scattering and reflectivity to measure the characteristics of individual polymer chains in thin films and in spaces smaller than the size of the individual chains, which is important for the nanotechnological applications of polymers, he points out. He has investigated the inter-penetration of polymers at interfaces, a key to the adhesion between polymers and the strength of bonding between multilayers of polymers used in microelectronics.

Russell also uncovered the role of interfacial interactions in dictating the orientation of nanoscopic domains in thin films of block copolymers that has led to the development of ultra-low dielectric constant insulators for microelectronics, for storage devices with terabits of elements per square inch, for floating gate memory in microelectronics with exceptional longevity, filtration devices with pores tens of nanometers in size capable of separating virus particles, and for UV interference filters. He says that these techniques have had a great impact in polymer science and materials science in nanotechnology, memory devices, membranes and solar cells.

Russell will receive a plaque and a $5,000 honorarium at the annual American Conference on Neutron Scattering meeting in July, where he will also present an invited talk. The conference will be held online this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Armed with thousands of Gymwipes, Zapiens Eagles open summer workouts

David Zapien is now a vigorous virus-fighting hero.

The second-year Pasadena High School head football coach formally opened strength and conditioning workouts this week and based on his staffs preparation, they were more than ready for their opponent, that microscopic germ called covid-19.

About 60 kids showed up today. The first two days well basically be showing them the new protocols, sanitizing and keeping their social distancing. So thats what well be doing is walking the kids through all that stuff. In a few days, well really start going on what we usually do in the summer, Zapien said.

Oh those protocols. At the stores, were all accustomed to them. But in a weight room, thats something entirely different.

We have a labeled entrance and exit door. When the kids come, theyve got to sign in and do basically like a survey. Its got a couple of questions like have you had a high fever, just all the symptoms of covid. Basically, before they can even start, they have to go through that series of protocols first and if they put yes to anything, we have to send them home, Zapien said.

And its not just the athletes from the football program visiting the weight room.

Weve got volleyball and cross country going on at the same time. I think we had about 25 girls show up for volleyball and about 10 or 11 for cross country. Theyre redoing our gym so come July, well have most of all the sports going. Ive got to make sure everybody is following the protocol and things like that, Zapien said.

Zapien, who was walking around the schools converted elementary school gymnasium thats now a weight room, wearing a face mask that featured an Eagle logo on it, noted that Pasadena ISD is more stringent than the UIL guidelines.

Once they get in, we sanitize their hands. Each position group goes to their assigned coach. Right now, we have every coach with about 10 kids. The kids, with their coach, rotate from station to station so no coach ever mixes in with a separate group of kids. They always have the same 10 kids, Zapien said.

None of this summer workout activity would be happening without those disinfectant wipes. Lots and lots of disinfectant wipes. On the floor by the weights, there were two buckets of Gymwipes, containers of 700 eight-by-six-inch-size towelettes.

Zapien said he ordered those back in December, not because he had already heard of Covid-19 but just to essentially have handy.

The kid works out at that bar and then once he does, he wipes it down all over again to clean it with all the weights he used. When that group leaves through the assigned door, another group comes in through a different door and then theyre going to wipe it down even before they use it, Zapien said. Were just letting the parents know were trying to be as safe as we can possibly be.

Outside the building where medicine balls were being utilized, a coach was spraying down each medicine ball after its use.

While his numbers this week are surpassing the average of last year, Zapien wants to see more. Hell know if hes getting more by how quickly those containers of disinfectant wipes are emptied.

Hopefully, our numbers will steadily increase. At least the kids know were working out in the summer. I know a lot of them have been sitting at home waiting for today to happen. I think its good for them to get out and see friends they havent seen for awhile and get that social aspect a little bit and see the coaches they normally see. Its good to get them back on a routine as much as we can, Zapien said.

Why Trumps Tulsa rally could become a Covid-19 superspreading event – Vox.com

§ June 19th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Why Trumps Tulsa rally could become a Covid-19 superspreading event – Vox.com

This Saturday, thousands of people are expected to gather inside the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, a city where Covid-19 cases have risen steeply since May 31, at a rally for President Donald Trumps reelection campaign. There may not be room for physical distancing in the arena, which can hold 19,000 people. Each person who registered has signed a waiver to say they will not sue Trump if they get sick with Covid-19.

The citys top health department official has warned that a large indoor gathering like this in the midst of a pandemic is unsafe. The organizers have promised to hand out masks, but people arent required to wear them. They plan to screen people for fevers at the door, but that will likely miss asymptomatic people who are infected but not feeling sick.

Given that this coronavirus tends to spread when people are in close, indoor quarters for extended periods, there is a very real risk this rally will turn into a massive superspreading event, where many attendees and people they later come into contact with will be infected.

On average, people with the coronavirus infect about two other people; most pass the virus to just one other person, or to no one else at all.

But some people go on to infect many more often before they even get symptoms. Many of these transmission chains begin with superspreading events, where one person (usually in a crowded indoor space) passes the virus to dozens of others. Early contact tracing studies suggest these events have been a large driver of transmission around the world. By some estimates, 10 percent of people have been causing 80 percent of new infections.

Some of the largest superspreading events have happened aboard ships, including Navy carriers and cruise ships. But they are also happening on the ground in smaller settings, including at a church in Arkansas.

In early March, a 57-year-old pastor and his wife, who both felt fine, attended a series of church events over three days, and the pastor returned for an additional Bible study group a few days later. Soon after, they each started developing symptoms and eventually tested positive for the coronavirus. But it had already spread. At least 33 of the other 92 event attendees later tested positive for Covid-19, and three of them died. These cases then spawned more than two dozen other illnesses and another death in the community.

A recent preliminary Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report analyzed all of the 3,184 confirmed Covid-19 cases in Japan through the beginning of April. The researchers found that 61 percent of cases could be definitively traced to clusters of spread outside the household, such as at restaurants, bars, event venues, and workplaces. And this is likely an undercount due to limitations in contact tracing.

What causes these superspreading clusters, and why are they such a key driver of this pandemic? Is it something about the people themselves who start them? Or is it more about the settings where these events take place? Or a combination?

Thankfully, we are learning more about superspreading events, and this insight can help dramatically slow the spread of the coronavirus, and save lives all while potentially allowing more people to return to less risky activities. That is, if policymakers implement the guidance, and people follow it. If you could reduce superspreading, you could have a massive impact on the pandemic, Elizabeth McGraw, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics at The Pennsylvania State University, told Vox in an email. Lets walk through it.

To understand what might kick off a superspreading event, lets review some basics about how this virus, SARS-CoV-2, spreads. Researchers have found that it often spreads through microscopic droplets created when an infected person coughs or sneezes or even speaks and another person breathes them in. These disease-containing droplets are a large part of the reasoning behind staying at least 6 feet away from people and wearing a mask in public.

But scientists are finding that the virus likely also spreads through even tinier, longer-lasting particles from breathing or speaking (or flushing a toilet) called aerosols. These are so small they can linger in the air after an infectious person has left and may contain infectious virus particles for up to three hours. And they may be a key element to superspreading events: An infected person could seed a poorly ventilated indoor space with virus without even getting physically close to all the people they end up infecting.

Superspreading also appears to be more likely with SARS-CoV-2 because people typically have the highest level of the virus in their system (making them infectious) right before they develop symptoms. (This is very different from other severe coronaviruses like SARS and MERS, where people were most infectious seven to 10 days after they started feeling sick, when they were more likely to be in isolation or in medical care.) So thousands of people with active Covid-19 infections continue to go about their lives not knowing that they could be spreading the disease.

This has meant that, as some researchers noted in a preprint, most transmissions are front-loaded toward the beginning of the illness. As another team of researchers who analyzed cases and contacts in Taiwan noted in JAMA, people actually had a much lower risk of spreading the virus after five days of symptoms. This might be in part because sick people are less likely to go out, whether because they dont want to spread their illness or because they simply dont feel up to it.

But it also has to do with a persons viral load an amount that actually tends to go down as symptoms wear on. A May study of samples collected from patients, published in Clinical Infectious Disease, suggests that people who had symptoms for more than eight days might not actually be very infectious.

I think the viruss biggest weapon has been that it can be spread by asymptomatic or presymptomatic people

All of this makes it so much more likely for people to be spreading the virus sometimes to very large groups of people unwittingly.

I think the viruss biggest weapon has been that it can be spread by asymptomatic or presymptomatic people, McGraw says. This, in combination with insufficient testing of people in the community, has meant that it can move from one host to the next while we are unaware.

This coronaviruss uneven spread is calculated by its dispersion factor (sometimes abbreviated as k): what proportion of cases cause the bulk of transmissions. An even dispersion rate would mean most people cause the same number of secondary infections.

We still dont have an entirely firm k factor for Covid-19, and a lot of the research is still in the prepublication phase and has not been peer-reviewed. But preliminary estimates, such as one co-authored by Adam Kucharski, an infectious disease dynamics expert at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, suggest that about 10 percent of infected people cause about 80 percent of the viruss spread.

Another early, non-peer-reviewed study from Israel put the local k factor at between 1 and 10 percent of infected people causing 80 percent of new infections. And a preliminary analysis of superspreading events in Hong Kong put their estimates at around 20 percent of infections causing 80 percent of local transmission.

All of this shows how important superspreading events have been in the viruss spread. But it doesnt fully explain why they are happening or how to stop them.

Scientists are learning that a persons likelihood of kicking off a superspreading event probably depends a little bit on biology and a lot on behavior.

Some individuals seem to develop higher amounts of the virus in their system, upping their odds of transmitting it to others.

And given that the amount of virus in the body tends to shift over the duration of infection rising until around the onset of symptoms, then declining the chance that someone is a likely superspreader changes over time.

Finding out whether some people are predisposed to be superspreaders will take more time and research, McGraw says.

But what we have been learning is how individuals behavior could increase the chance they spread the virus to many others or not. We do know that wearing masks, keeping up physical distancing, avoiding crowds, and isolating upon becoming sick or testing positive can prevent superspreading, she says.

The new CDC report out of Japan found 22 people who likely started clusters of cases. (Half of them were 20 to 39 years old.) And for 16 people, the research team could figure out when transmission occurred, which is important because it showed that 41 percent of them didnt have any symptoms when they spread the virus. In fact, of the superspreaders, only one had a cough when they infected others.

This points to an important nuance in thinking about how some individuals might be sickening a disproportionate number of others. We should not think about superspreaders as villains, McGraw says. Any one of us could unknowingly be a superspreader especially given what we know about how much it spreads when people are feeling just fine.

But that means we can probably also avoid becoming a superspreader. How? By doing things we already know can limit the spread of the virus: Wear a mask. Wash your hands. Keep your distance, and respect the physical space of others, McGraw says.

As the pandemic has worn on and become increasingly politicized, many people in the US are now resisting continued precautions, leading to mask rebellions, large gatherings and much greater chances of new superspreading events. The upcoming Trump campaign rally in Tulsa is just the latest and largest example. As the top public health official there said in a press conference Wednesday, I know so many people are over Covid, but Covid is not over. And indeed, according to Covid Exit Strategy, Oklahomas new daily cases are up 125 percent over the past 14 days.

I see an increasing number of people not wearing masks in public as restrictions ease, McGraw says. I find it disappointing. I worry that our focus on personal freedoms in the US, rather than being more community-minded, is going to prolong the outbreak and lead to more deaths than necessary.

Although we know that individuals behavior plays a role in superspreading, what might be even more important for these events is where they happen.

Researchers have been tracking many superspreading events around the globe, and there seem to be recurring locations no matter what the country. In addition to those we have heard most about, like prisons, food processing plants, and elder care facilities, there have also been numerous large superspreading events at bars, churches, offices, gyms, and shopping centers.

These are also places, though, that are now reopening around the country and likely contributing to the upward swing of cases in many states. As Kucharski notes, Identifying and reducing risky events and environments could make a substantial dent in transmission. Not reducing these events has the opposite effect on the number of cases.

For example, as South Korea started to reopen in early May, one infected person who attended five nightclubs caused at least 50 new infections.

And a preliminary study of infection clusters in Hong Kong found that the largest one documented so far, which resulted in 106 Covid-19 cases, was linked back to exposures from staff and musicians at a series of bars. Seventy-three of the people in this cluster caught the virus at the bars (including 39 who were customers), who then spread it to others in the community.

A team of researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine has been collecting data on these superspreading events in a public database. The largest ones including two that resulted in more than 1,000 cases each happened aboard ships. Hundreds of cases also have originated from single individuals in close contact with others in worker dormitories, food processing plants, prisons, and elder care facilities.

But next on the list are an outbreak tied to a single person at an indoor-outdoor shopping market in Peru who likely infected 163 other people; an indoor-outdoor religious service in India where one person likely sickened 130 others; and an indoor-outdoor wedding in New Zealand where a single case sparked 98 more.

Only one of the 22 cluster location types the team analyzed in a preliminary study was an outdoor setting (building sites in Singapore; four clusters were linked to these sites, causing a total of 95 infections acquired directly from the sites).

These findings line up with other preliminary research that calculated closed environments to be almost 20 times more likely to spur additional coronavirus infections than open-air ones.

Its not just being indoors that seems to matter. There are other reasons certain venues are more prone to superspreading.

As weve learned from studying events, like the infamous March church choir practice in Skagit County, Washington, during which one person infected an estimated 52 of 61 people (two of whom died), loud talking and singing can spread more virus than talking at a normal volume, McGraw says.

Indeed, the recent analysis out of Japan found that many Covid-19 clusters were associated with heavy breathing in close proximity, such as singing at karaoke parties, cheering at clubs, having conversations in bars, and exercising in gymnasiums.

Even looking more closely at cases from these locations can give us clues about what makes superspreading more likely. A CDC report from South Korea detailed 112 new Covid-19 infections that came from aerobic dance classes (like Zumba) in one city. Interestingly, an instructor who infected dance class participants also taught yoga and Pilates classes, but none of those participants got ill.

We hypothesize that the lower intensity of pilates and yoga did not cause the same transmission effects as those more intense fitness dance classes, the authors noted. The moist, warm atmosphere in a sports facility coupled with turbulent air flow generated by intense physical exercise can cause more dense transmission of isolated droplets, thereby making the virus more likely to spread.

These hubs of contagion also are helping us learn what activities might be safer, like seeing small groups of people, from a distance, outdoors.

Theres increasing evidence that certain environments, like socially distanced picnics with a few other people, are far less risky than crowded, close-knit interactions, like large gatherings indoors, says Kucharski, who is also the author of a forthcoming book called The Rules of Contagion.

Superspreading can be both a curse and a potential blessing in a disease outbreak. It means that having everyone on full lockdown is not necessarily essential to keep the disease in check when it is not already circulating widely in a community if (and thats an important if) we can determine the highest risks for superspreading and prevent them. Thats the blessing. The curse, Kucharski says, is if risky situations are missed or undetected, it means transmission could persist.

Not only that, but there is also the danger that, as the authors of the one early report note, If a superspreader is infected, the disease may spread to other superspreaders. This seems entirely possible, especially given that people surrounding an original superspreader were probably already engaging in behavior (like attending a crowded public location) that would make them more likely to be a superspreader, too.

Superspreading events also can strain other systems in place, like contact tracing, to contain the virus, increasing the odds that further infections will continue to spiral in the community. Just as a sudden spike in cases can surpass the capacity of health care systems, a big jump can also surpass local capacity to track and notify contacts of the infected to isolate and get tested.

But now that we have data from recent superspreading events, we could theoretically prevent future ones.

The good news is that the science suggests we can. But it depends on government, businesses, and individuals to put these lessons into practice.

For example, in addition to physical distancing measures, limits on capacity, and requiring mask-wearing, governments and businesses could also take into account other details we are learning about superspreading events, like loud environments that encourage more droplet-filled speech. For example, as Colorado shifts to allow bars to open and indoor events to take place this weekend, it could establish guidelines to limit noise levels (by, for example, not allowing loud music) so that people dont need to yell or talk loudly.

Some current efforts to prevent superspreading like taking peoples temperature before they enter a building are not failproof, however.

Even if a business, day care, or large-scale event checks everyones temperature before they enter, it wont necessarily pick up everyone who is infectious, Kucharski says.

McGraw agrees, noting that it is really only going to catch a subset of people who have the virus. For example, some infected individuals never develop a fever, or their fever rises and falls over a single day or changes through the illness, she says.

One company that has tested more than 30,000 people for Covid-19 recently reported that just 12 percent of people with positive tests had a fever of 100 degrees or higher. And only 37 percent even had a cough.

One thing that will help reduce these events is more contact tracing and testing. These tools would also help us learn more about the nuances of superspreading and prevent more of it in the future. If those 10 or 20 percent of people who would have sparked 80 percent of the new infections instead only passed the illness on to one or two other people, we could be in a much different place, and soon.

A first step is following the lead of infectious disease experts, who know well what potential superspreading situations to avoid. McGraw says, Right now, I would not go to a gym, an indoor restaurant, or big, crowded events like rallies, concerts, nightclubs, etc.

What would she feel comfortable doing? I might dine outside, if the tables were spaced apart, and I felt like the customers and restaurant staff were taking precautions. Just this past week, she went camping with her family, but she chose campgrounds following CDC guidelines. For other places, like parks and beaches, my advice is to be prepared to leave if they get crowded and you cannot safely distance, she says.

For his part, Kucharski cites the simple guidelines Japan has put out: avoid, when at all possible, the 3 Cs closed environments, crowded places, and close-contact settings.

And its a reminder that large, entirely optional indoor events, like political campaign rallies (for any candidate), seem exceptionally dangerous right now not just for those who attend, but also for those they might come into contact with later.

Brighton scientists in the race to build quantum computer – The Argus

§ June 18th, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Brighton scientists in the race to build quantum computer – The Argus

TWO scientists have received millions of pounds to build a piece of groundbreaking technology.

Dr Sebastian Weidt and Professor Winfried Hensinger, who both carry out research and teach at the University of Sussex, have secured 3.6 million investment for their plans for the worlds first large-scale quantum computer.

It puts them up against the likes of Google and IBM in a race to create what Sebastian described as the technology of the century.

He said: A quantum computer is a completely new computer. Its not the sort you have at your desk.

Its a machine which can solve certain problems that the most powerful conventional computer would take millions of years to solve.

Professor Winfried Hensinger and Dr Sebastian Weidt, founders of Universal Quantum

Unlike their competitors, who have designed quantum computers which use billions of laser beams for calculations at extremely cold temperatures marginally above minus 273C, Sebastian and Winfried have developed technology based on trapped ions, or charged atoms.

These atoms carry out calculations within the computer using microwave technology, such as that used in mobile phones, and do not need the same extreme cooling requirements.

It means their computer is more practical and can operate millions of qubits, or units of data, at the same time and solve complex problems.

Sebastian said their computer could be used to develop new drugs as it can work out chemical reactions very quickly and could also help in the development of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technologies.

He said: Its an enabling technology which a lot of sectors will use to help them work out their own problems, just like we do now with conventional computers.

In ten or 20 years we will look back and think, this is the technology of the century.

Sebastian and Winfried, who founded their start-up company Universal Quantum in 2018, have been researching quantum mechanics for more than 20 years.

The pair have received funding from a number of investors including Hoxton Ventures, which was an early backer of Deliveroo, and Village Global, which is backed by the likes of Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos.

Sebastian said: Its very humbling and incredibly exciting as we have these leading investors who believe in our technology and our team.

Universal Quantum is really about taking the solutions we have developed through research at Sussex and putting them into practice.

Sebastian and Winfried are looking for a suitable facility in Brighton and Hove to begin the challenge of building the quantum computer and they will need to hire hundreds of engineers to help them.

Silicon microchips were used in Sebastian and Winfried's prototype for a large-scale quantum computer

Sebastian said: Its a long-term mission but we really wanted to do this in Brighton. We want the city to be a quantum technology hub.

We love Brighton and we actively chose not to go to the US or other places a lot of start-up companies like to go.

Winfried said: Quantum computing has the power to change the world for the better.

Were assembling the brightest minds to do just that, paving the way for a British start-up to lead the journey to a truly useful and usable one million qubit quantum computer.

Our large-scale quantum computers will one day allow us to tackle the grand global issues of our time, from creating new pharmaceuticals, revolutionising financial modelling, tackling optimisation problems, machine learning even helping to feed the worlds population by making fertiliser more efficiently.

UK Increases Quantum Investment with Funding of 38 New Projects – Computer Business Review

§ June 18th, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on UK Increases Quantum Investment with Funding of 38 New Projects – Computer Business Review

Add to favorites

Quantum is no longer an experimental science for the UK.

The UK government has highlighted 38 UK run quantum projects that will receive a share of a 70 million investment that aims to develop technologies ranging from new electric vehicle batteries to advanced imaging systems that detect cancer.

Quantum technologies could potentially bring about technological breakthroughs in the field of cryptography as quantum computers are expected to be exponentially faster than HPC system operating today.

This round of investment will go to 80 companies and 30 university that are working on the 38 quantum projects. Enterprise and universities are collaborating on many of the projects like the University of Manchester which is working with the medical imaging firm Adaptix to develop a sensor that can differentiate between cancers tissues and healthy ones.

UK Research and Innovation Challenge Director Roger McKinlay commented that: About one third of the projects concern quantum computing, demonstrating that the UK is becoming the go-to place for this game changing technology, with a growing community of thriving spin-outs, led by world-class teams. Quantum computers will be exponentially faster than classical computers at certain kinds of complex problems, solving in seconds what would take the best classical computers thousands of years.

Last year the UK government committed 153 million towards the development of quantum technologies, bringing total investment into the nascent technology to 1 billion. This weeks allocation of funding to the 38 projects is part of that larger investment.

Through the National Quantum Technologies Programme the 153 million is expected to be matched with a 200 million investment from the private sector. Overall the UK government hopes to increase research and development investment to 2.4% of GDP.

The UK is also establishing a National Quantum Computing Centre, this centre will be delivered by the UK Research and Innovation body which works in collaboration with industry and universities.

At the time of the investment Science Minister Chris Skidmore commented that: This milestone shows that Quantum is no longer an experimental science for the UK. Investment by government and businesses is paying off, as we become one of the worlds leading nations for quantum science and technologies. Now industry is turning what was once a futuristic pipedream into life-changing products. This is our modern Industrial Strategy in action taking the most innovative ideas from our world-leading researchers and showing how they can be applied, from diagnosing diseases to detecting gas leaks.

GovCon Expert Chuck Brooks: New Government Technology Initiatives To Stir Innovation – GovConWire

§ June 18th, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on GovCon Expert Chuck Brooks: New Government Technology Initiatives To Stir Innovation – GovConWire

Chuck Brooks

By Chuck Brooks

Investment in technology research is an integral part of the journey as we embark on the 4th industrial era. Government is recognizing the imperative to stir technological innovation and new initiatives that are now coming to the forefront.

There is an extensive infrastructure of federal agencies geared toward facilitating innovative technology research and development. There are dedicated research and development efforts being conducted at (among other agencies) the Department of Defense (DOD), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Energy/National Labs (DOE), the Intelligence Community (IC) and in the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Last month, Bipartisan legislation, called the Endless Frontier Act, was introduced to restructure the National Science Foundation (NSF). The legislation would rename NSF to be the National Science and Technology Foundation where it would focus on emerging technologies. A primary mission of the NSTFs technology directorate would be to accelerate the translation of fundamental research advances into processes and products that can help achieve national goals,

The ACT also create a new technology directorate within NSF and would provide $100 in funding over 5 years for cutting edge research and development. The legislation would authorize the agency toprovide funding increases in research spending to universities, consortia with private industry and U.S. allies; offer new undergraduate scholarships and training programs; develop test-bed and fabrication facilities; develop programs to facilitate and accelerate the transfer of new technologies from the lab to marketplace; and coordinate with state and local economic development stakeholders and private sector to build regional innovation ecosystems.

The initial 10 areas of investment would include:

Concurrent to the NSF initiative, the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee approved the CYBER LEAP Act legislation to fund cybersecurity breakthroughs. The Act aims to deliver high-priority breakthroughs in cybersecurity by 2028 in five key areas:

The legislation would help foster innovation and collaboration as the public, private, and academic sectors work together to address the cybersecurity challenges of our time, according to one of the billco-sponsors, Corey Gardner (R-CO)

Another new initiative was announced by The Department of Energys (DOE) Artificial Intelligence and Technology Office. The announcement stated that DOE is looking forpotential AI research and development concepts encompassing various subject areas including sensors, supercomputers and data analytics.

At the Department of Defense, when it comes to cutting edge research and development, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is the lead agency. The DARPA website notes that DARPA was established in 1958 to prevent strategic surprise from negatively impacting U.S. national security and create strategic surprise for U.S. adversaries by maintaining the technological superiority of the U.S. military.

As the DoDs primary innovation engine, DARPA undertakes projects that are finite in duration but that create lasting revolutionary change. Launched in 2015, DOD sDefense Innovation Unit (DIU also assists the U.S. military make faster use of emerging commercial technologies.

In the intelligence community, the Intelligence Advanced Research Project Activity (IARPA) is operated under the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. IARPA endeavours to counter new capabilities implemented by our adversaries that could threaten our ability to operate freely and effectively in a networked world.

IARPA is tasked to predict rapid changes in the information technology threat landscape and often solicits input from industry and academia.Key IARPA cybersecurity research focus areas include information assurance, advanced computing technologies and architectures, quantum information science and technology, and threat detection and mitigation.

The National Labs and Federally Funded research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) are also a cornerstone of technology innovation. These include some of our nations most recognized national Labs including: Lawrence Livermore, Oak Ridge, Argonne, Sandia, Idaho National laboratory, Battelle, and Brookhaven.

The Science & Technology Directorate at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) helps fund many of the National Lab programs with a priority on leap-ahead technologies for homeland security. The labs have been continually engaged in innovative research and development and will also be an integral part of the new fortified effort to address disruptive technology opportunities and challenges.

We are proceeding in an era of Malthusian advances in science and technology, enabled by faster computing and ever expanding data analytics. These advancements will be profound and impact our security, economy and our way of life. Planning, developing and funding projects in closer coordination with the private sector and academia will allow for more focused and more capable technology development. Government is pursuing the correct path with these new initiatives.

Hoxton Ventures closes its second fund of almost $100m – Sifted

§ June 18th, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Hoxton Ventures closes its second fund of almost $100m – Sifted

Hoxton Ventures, which is today announcing that it has closed its second fund at just under $100m, is a little different from other European VC firms.

For starters, its team is tiny. Until recently, it was a two-man band; partners Hussein Kanji and Rob Kniaz had to set up payroll for the first time only recently when chief operating officer Rob Ludwig joined the show. There are no PAs or principals.

It also has an impressive unicorn herd its first $40m fund invested in food delivery giant Deliveroo, digital health company Babylon and cyber security firm Darktrace, all now valued at more than one billion dollars. 75% of its portfolio has also gone on to raise from leading US funds.

And the London-based firms portfolio is pretty diverse: 21% of its companies are founded by women and 38% started by minorities.

How have they managed it?

Get the Sifted Newsletter

Thank you for subscribing to the newsletter!

Most of our deals come through people we know, says Kniaz which might sound like a disaster for any kind of diversity, until he explains.

The majority of deals come through founder referrals, and founders tend to have more diverse networks than British VCs, he adds. (Kniaz and Kanji are both American Xooglers.)

Hoxton is a very opportunistic investor, writing cheques of $500,000 to $5m at pre-seed, seed and Series A. Its sector-agnostic, but has always selected for founders who were keen to expand to the US. It has backed business across various sectors, from medical imaging (Kheiron Medical) to education (Preply), biotechnology (FabricNano) to quantum computing (Universal Quantum), and locations, from Warsaw (Nomagic) to Austria (TourRadar).

When these founders open up their networks to a VC like Hoxton, it breeds success over time, says Kniaz.

Thats not the only way Hoxton comes across deals, however. Kniaz, a computer scientist, spent his downtime in between raising the latest fund (it took a while) to start data scraping.

Ive written 10,000 lines of code, he says. Im trawling profiles on Twitter, LinkedIn of about 50,000 people and 10,000 companies. I identify interesting people like someone who moved from Facebook US to Facebook UK and then started a company and try to find velocity changes.

Kniaz is looking for the moment when the number of hires a company is making suddenly shoots up, or when a whole bunch of talented people join the same company at once. Looking back at some of the best people Ive worked with, they usually make pretty good choices career-wise, so if they join a company, they must see something in them.

We shouldve done deals like UiPath and Monzo.

The idea came from thinking about the ones they missed and trying to figure out what signals Kniaz and Kanji shouldve picked up on to know those startups would be winners.

Both of us lose sleep over everything we missed; we shouldve done deals like UiPath and Monzo those were both within our investment cycle.

Also on the list of first fund regrets is cheque size.

Fund one was too small, says Kniaz. We wrote cheques as big as we could, but we wouldve written more and the founders wouldve taken more. One of our biggest regrets is that we couldnt write bigger cheques. Now, with fund two, we can own the right amount.

Despite the first fund looking on track to make good returns, raising the second fund wasnt straight forward. It took two years, in part because Hoxton spent months going through a long process with the European Investment Fund, only for them to pull out of all new relationships with UK investors as a result of the Brexit process.

The wasted time meant that other investor commitments had faded away and it was back to the drawing board. In the end, British Patient Capital stepped in to fill the gap.

Other investors in fund two (limited partners, or LPs) came via referrals from other VCs whove invested alongside Hoxton. Its a common way for LPs to figure out which funds to invest in, says Kniaz. We sometimes get pings from our LPs: Were growing our venture allocation, who would you invest with?

Theres a temptation to keep growing bigger and bigger, but in venture, the model breaks after you get to a certain size.

When fund three comes around, Kniaz says he doesnt expect it would be terribly bigger than fund two, at just under $100m. Theres a temptation to keep growing bigger and bigger, but in venture, the model breaks after you get to a certain size. You reach a point where the returns go down as the fund gets bigger.

Hoxton also wont be tempted to grow its team much, either.

As we get bigger, we might add one to two investors to hire as a full-time partner or to become one in the next vehicle, says Kniaz.

British venture is private equity in venture clothing.

Hes not such a fan of the hierarchy many firms adopt. British venture is private equity in venture clothing. Its heavily structured, with partners and principals and vice presidents its following the banking template, where the entry level person screens everything and passes it up the chain, he says. You lose a lot of fidelity that way.

Its not so easy for people who havent had years of experience in venture to spot the winners; theres no checklist like in private equity, he says. How do they know what a good deal is? Venture has so many intangibles. You dont get good at it for five years and after that you pattern match.

As with many aspects of how it does business, Hoxton looks to the Valley here. The best firms Sequoia, Benchmark have a lot of PAs, but the structure is still partnership-led. The partner meets the founders. Its very flat.

As for various in-vogue models like platform VC, Kniaz thinks a lot of it is marketing. But for that and for PR Kniaz has little time. Most general PR is pretty worthless.

We dont find that much value in it; most founders who have the right mindset will find us in good time. I would hope our work would speak for itself.

Searching For Answers: Scientists Struggle To Get Beyond Ambiguous Reasons Behind Who Dies, Who Doesn’t – Kaiser Health News

§ June 18th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Searching For Answers: Scientists Struggle To Get Beyond Ambiguous Reasons Behind Who Dies, Who Doesn’t – Kaiser Health News

Is it age, pre-existing conditions, blood types or virus strains that make one person more likely to die than another? Scientists says the "why" of the matter remains unclear. Science news is also on soaking up the virus with tiny, tiny sponges, having certain blood types might be helpful, trying to produce super antibodies, alleviating fears for pregnant women, exploring childhood vulnerability and analyzing infection rates among the elderly, as well.

The Washington Post: Why Does Coronavirus Kill Some People And Spare Others? The novel coronavirus can be a killer or no big deal. It can put a person in the intensive care unit on a ventilator, isolated from family, facing a lonely death or it can come and go without leaving a mark, a ghost pathogen, more rumor than reality. Six months into a pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 people globally, scientists are still trying to understand the wildly variable nature of covid-19, the disease caused by the virus. (Achenbach, Brulliard and Cha, 6/17)

Reuters: Tiny Sponges May Soak Up Coronavirus; Old Steroid Dexamethasone Saves Lives In COVID-19 Study Scientists have developed microscopic sponges - a thousand times smaller than the width of a human hair - they hope might be used inside the body to attract and neutralize the coronavirus. The "nanosponges" are coated with membranes from lung cells or from immune cells known as macrophages, study co-leader Liangfang Zhang of the University of California, San Diego told Reuters. These cell membranes have the same receptor proteins on their surfaces that the virus uses to break into cells in the body. In test tube experiments, the nanosponges successfully acted as decoys to attract and inactivate the virus, Zhang's team reported on Wednesday in the journal Nano Letters. (Lapid, 6/17)

The Associated Press: Study Ties Blood Type To COVID-19 Risk; O May Help, A Hurt A genetic analysis of COVID-19 patients suggests that blood type might influence whether someone develops severe disease. Scientists who compared the genes of thousands of patients in Europe found that those who had Type A blood were more likely to have severe disease while those with Type O were less likely. Wednesdays report in the New England Journal of Medicine does not prove a blood type connection, but it does confirm a previous report from China of such a link. (Marchione, 6/18)

CBS News: What Are "Super" Antibodies? Doctor Explains Cells Found In Less Than 5% Of COVID-19 Patients Researchers in California have identified what they are calling a super-strength antibody that blocks the coronavirus' most infectious elements.

Antibody therapies could treatand even preventCovid-19. Here’s what you need to know. – The Daily Briefing

§ June 18th, 2020 § Filed under Genetically Modified Humans Comments Off on Antibody therapies could treatand even preventCovid-19. Here’s what you need to know. – The Daily Briefing

Researchers and drug companies around the world are testing the use of antibody therapies to treat and prevent Covid-19but while some of the therapies have shown promise, experts say the therapies might not be available for use until next year. Here's what you need to know about the potential treatments.

Antibody therapies are created using antibodies that were naturally generated by either a human or animal that was infected with a given disease or virus. For Covid-19 antibody therapies, the treatments rely on isolated antibodies to neutralize the new coronavirus, known as SARS-CoV-2, which causes Covid-19.

Researchers have so far considered convalescent plasma treatments, which are made from the plasma of people who were recently infected with the virus and transfused into Covid-19 patients, as well as other treatments developed from the blood of newly recovered patients as potential antibody treatments for Covid-19.

Researchers have also started developing monoclonal antibodies, which are antibodies that can be isolated and manufactured in larger quantities via artificial reproduction, for the new coronavirus. According to Reuters, these types of antibody therapies can be easier to scale, because unlike convalescent plasma, monoclonal antibodies do not require a "steady supply of antibody-rich blood."

Some scientists are considering using the monoclonal antibodies for a prophylactic treatment that potentially could prevent infection from the new coronavirus before it is contracted, Scientific American reports.

Several organizations are developing these potential therapies.

For instance, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals started developing Covid-19 antibodies in January, when the disease's genetic sequence became available. Researchers culled the antibodies from genetically modified mice that carry human genes, as well as people, to create an "antibody cocktail," Scientific American reports. Christos Kyratsous, VP of research on infectious diseases and viral vector technologies at Regeneron, said the cocktail could enter clinical trials in June, with the goal of having doses of its preventative monoclonal antibody treatments ready for use by later this summer or fall, according to Scientific American.

Separately, Vanderbilt University researchers have collected antibodies from about a dozen people who've recovered from Covid-19 and found about 40 antibodies that have the potential to neutralize the novel coronavirus, according to Robert Carnahan, associate director of the Vanderbilt Vaccine Center. The researchers are working with Cambridge University and AstraZeneca to develop potential therapies, some of which could enter clinical trials this summer, Carnahan said.

AstraZeneca is also working on a potential treatment combining two antibodies, which can "reduce the chance of resistance developing to one antibody," according to Pascal Soriot, the drugmaker's CEO.

Eli Lilly is developing different antibody treatments, including a monoclonal treatment, that have already started early testing in humans.

Meanwhile, the CoVIg-19 Plasma Alliance is using convalescent plasma to develop a standardized dose of antibodies that could be used on patients with different blood types. GlaxoSmithKline and AbbVie are also working to develop potential antibody treatments for Covid-19, according to Reuters.

Studies suggest antibody therapies could be an effective way to treat Covid-19, but health experts say it will be a while before the treatments can be deployed.

Jill Horowitz, executive director of strategic operations at Rockefeller University's Laboratory of Molecular Immunology, said manufacturers may not have the existing capacity to produce antibody therapies. "Every factory that gets built has a reason. And you can bet that all those factories are committed to [existing] drugs that we need," Horowitz said.

Antibodies are also expensive, especially since they often are administered intravenouslya fact that could make them difficult to deliver on a larger scale, especially in lower-income countries, according to Arthur Reingold, an epidemiologist and biostatistician at the University of California-Berkeley.

The type of antibody treatment also determines when the treatments will be available. For instance, clinical trials for therapeutic treatments are usually faster than trials for prophylactic treatments, according to Horowitz. And since "therapy is a dire need right now," FDA is likely to approve treatments for Covid-19 faster than preventives for the diseasealthough approvals for antibody treatments are likely at least six months away, as well, Horowitz said.

So while antibody therapies may eventually help treat Covid-19, health experts "should be careful about how they communicate and basically create hope in the population," according to Florian Krammer, a microbiologist and infectious disease expert at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. "I think it's very dangerous to say, 'Within [months], we will have [an] antibody therapeutic that works, and everybody will get it.' That's unrealistic" (Erman, Reuters, 6/19; Kramer, Scientific American, 5/29; The Guardian, 6/7).
