Volatire is tired of over-hyped premature announcements from Irish Universities and ITs.

At various times, they have claimed to have found a cure for cancer, diabetes, alzheimers, stumbled on a unbreakable cryptographic algorithm, solved climate change and discovered Atlantis.//

Let's not forget the genius who worked out that the earth was created in October 4004 BC.

Not a day sooner :lol:

Even the ludicrous young scientists competition was won by a teenager who apparently discovered the cure for MRSA.

Sadly, most of this stuff is laughable. The predictable consequence of excessive funding and the need to be seen to "produce results".
Can you link to an Irish university claiming to have cured cancer?

"The researchers say they were surprised that the new substance maintained its regenerative ability as usually electro-conductive materials kill cells and tissue in the body.

They were even more surprised to learn that the material has infection control properties.
[...]
So far the material has reached the proof of principle stage in the lab using heart cells, with the details published in the journal Advanced Materials.

"may" "might" etc.

Usual over-hyped nonsense press release from an Irish University.

It's a peer-reviewed article published in a magazine that's highly respected in the world of academic scientists.

This was a joint collaboration between TCD and the Indian Institute of Technology in Kanpur.

"[T]here are some key molecular interactions that are stimulated by movement and which guide the cells and tissues of the embryo to build a functionally robust yet malleable skeleton. If an embryo doesn't move, a vital signal may be lost or an inappropriate one delivered in error, which can lead to the development of brittle bones or abnormal joints. "

New research by Trinity College, Dublin shows why babies need to move in the womb

The tendency of scientists to be optimistic about the significance of their work is not confined to Ireland. One part of a scientist’s job is getting grants. If you won’t sing the praises of your research, why would you expect anybody else to support it either?
