Mesa Fire to Outfit All Fire/EMS Crews With Bulletproof Vests
MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - Body armor is not just for police anymore. Mesa Fire is now putting the bulletproof gear on all of its firefighters.

Realizing private and practical pharmacological collaboration
Although combining data from multiple entities could power life-saving breakthroughs, open sharing of pharmacological data is generally not viable because of data privacy and intellectual property concerns. To this end, we leverage modern cryptographic tools to introduce a computational protocol for securely training a predictive model of drug–target interactions (DTIs) on a pooled dataset that overcomes barriers to data sharing by provably ensuring the confidentiality of all underlying drugs, targets, and observed interactions.
