Early warning tool for breast cancer prediction in SE Asian women
A researcher at The University of Nottingham Malaysia is collaborating with scientists at Cancer Research Malaysia , Singapore and the United Kingdom to develop a new early warning tool that could help to predict which women in South East Asia are most at risk of developing breast cancer. The work of Dr Weang Kee Ho in the University's Department of Applied Mathematics could help to find out whether it is possible to target expensive mammographic screening at women who are most likely to be affected, enabling doctors to detect the disease in its early stages when it is most treatable.

Computer game encourages people to be more risk-aware
How do you encourage people in the midst of an emergency to stay calm and prioritise their safety over their possessions' University of Bristol researchers have devised a game which they believe could help, by encouraging players to be more risk-aware. Studies into human behaviour in emergencies have shown that the decisions people make during evacuations, be it the exit they choose or whether they collect their personal belongings, can cause significant delays.

Planning for freedom - how statistics can help us eradicate modern slavery
PA 35/18 Experts in modern slavery from the University of Nottingham are using a new way of calculating the precise number of slaves in a city, region or country, helping the fight for freedom. Working with the Home Office, Professor Kevin Bales CMG and Professor Sir Bernard Silverman from the Rights Lab at the University of Nottingham have successfully used a technique known as the Multiple Systems Estimate (MSE) to calculate a reliable estimate of the true number of slaves in a specific location.

Electron behaviour under extreme conditions described for the first time
Electron behaviour under extreme conditions described for the first time
Researchers have modelled the actions of electrons under extreme temperatures and densities, such as those found within planets and stars. The work could provide insights into the behaviour of matter in fusion experiments, which may one day lead to a sought-after source of clean energy. Electrons are an elementary component of our world and determine many of the properties of solids and liquids.

Earliest recorded use of zero is centuries older than first thought
The concept and associated value of the mathematical symbol 'zero' is used the world over as a fundamental numerical pillar. However, its origin has until now been one of the field's greatest conundrums. Scientists from the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries, have used carbon dating to trace the figure's origins to the famous ancient Indian scroll, the Bakhshali manuscript.
