Micro robot Microrobots armed with new force-sensing system to probe cells
Spotlight
Inexpensive microrobots capable of probing and manipulating individual cells and tissue for biological research and medical applications are closer to reality with the design of a system that senses the minute forces exerted by a robot's tiny probe.
Graphene Purdue-based startup scales up graphene production, develops biosensors and supercapacitors
Spotlight
Professor Timothy Fisher, James G. Dwyer Professor of Mechanical Engineering, and founder and Chief Technology Officer of BlueVine Graphene Industries, developed the technology that is enabling the company to address the challenge of scaling graphene production for commercial applications.
Soft robots Robotic fabric could bring 'active clothing,' wearable robots
Spotlight
Researchers are developing a robotic fabric that moves and contracts and is embedded with sensors, an approach that could bring "active clothing" and a new class of "soft" robots.
Chip schematic New chip promising for tumor-targeting research
Spotlight
Researchers have developed a chip capable of simulating a tumor's "microenvironment" and plan to use the new system to test the effectiveness of nanoparticles and drugs that target cancer.
Schematic diagram Findings suggest how swimming cells form biofilms on surfaces
Spotlight
New research findings point toward future approaches to fighting bacterial biofilms that foul everything from implantable medical devices to industrial pipes and boat propellers.
