Purdue ECE researchers have engineered yeast "microbreweries" to help hospital lab workers better track their daily radiation exposure, enabling a faster assessment of tissue damage that could lead to cancer.
A Purdue ECE-led effort will eventually make electronic devices faster. Prof. Zubin Jacob and graduate research assistant Saman Jahani have helped develop a new protective metamaterial "cladding," which prevents light from leaking out of the very curvy pathways it would travel in a computer chip.
Purdue University researchers have developed a technique they hope will provide valuable information about the growth of certain cancers and the ability of drugs to fight them. ECE postdoctoral scientists Rahim Rahimi and Manuel Ochoa led the engineering portion of the research.
Purdue University researchers, including ECE Prof. Saeed Mohammadi, have created an electronic chip that may provide improved support for the hundreds of millions of people worldwide the World Health Organization says are affected by neurological disorders.
A group of researchers at Purdue University, led by ECE Prof. Thomas Talavage, is designing data-driven tools that will help clinicians better understand the progression of neurodegenerative diseases by identifying and tracking changes in the brain.
Communication could step beyond reading a cellular phone screen with a new technique by Purdue College of Engineering researchers, led by ECE Prof. Hong Tan, to learn and read messages through a person’s sense of touch.
Led by ECE Prof. Surabh Bagchi, A new Purdue University College of Engineering center has been unveiled to seek the foundational design principles that underlie resilient systems. The Center for Resilient Infrastructures, Systems and Processes (CRISP) was officially started in October 2017 and will run its seed grant competition for research proposals this summer.
