Look around in any public place and the sight is ubiquitous: people staring intently at little screens, hunched over their portable electronic devices. Materials scientist John B. Goodenough has had a starring role in that scene: he invented the rechargeable lithium-ion battery that allows us to tote these pocket-sized devices around without carrying power cables or stacks of AA batteries. And at the age of 95, he’s not done yet -- he still works full time, writing, teaching, and searching for the next great advance in battery technology. http://bit.ly/2pyKgHP John B. Goodenough is the winner of The Franklin Institute’s 2018 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Chemistry. http://bit.ly/2pyKgHP

“Black troops were regarded as second-class citizens,” said Hicks, “and often received lesser quality of equipment and clothing, and maybe only one doctor per regiment.” On April 21 at 11 a.m., Mütter Museum Director Robert Hicks will join Mayor Kenney, U.S. Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Pa.), and other politicians, historians and Civil War reenactors at the Philadelphia National Cemetery, to unveil an informational panel erected by the Veterans Administration that celebrates the achievements of the United States Colored Troops.

    Mutter exhibit recalls how the sacrifices of black Civil War troops advanced medicine - Philly
    Struck down by disease far more frequently than their white comrades, with nearly double the death rate, black soldiers who joined the U.S. Colored Troops would prove pivotal to medicine's understanding of the greatest public health crisis in the young nation's history.
