Edwin Kpodzro: sowing seeds of innovation for global impact

Look at the sesame seeds on your hamburger bun. While you might see just a topping, Edwin Kpodzro, Ph.D. student in mechanical engineering, sees the opportunity to renew an entire country. He initiated a project to help sesame farmers in South Sudan, which has expanded to include design analysis of the complex relationships between business, environment, and society in the developing world. Edwin was recently chosen to attend an international agriculture summit to help develop the project.

Can engineering help to diagnose brain aneurysms?

A cerebral aneurysm is a bulge in one of the brain's blood vessels, caused by a thin spot in the vessel walls; if they burst, they cause cerebral hemorrhage or stroke. Purdue Engineers are now collaborating with the Indiana University School of Medicine to convert medical imaging data of cerebral aneurysms into computational models that can help to predict the progression of an individual patient's aneurysm.

Road mapping cellular agriculture for cultivated meat manufacturing

Feeding people is one of the most basic human needs. But as the earth's population grows and natural resources and climate conditions dwindle, even this most basic function is in danger of becoming unsustainable. Tackling such a massive issue requires an equally impactful collaboration from experts in many fields. That is why Purdue's College of Agriculture and College of Engineering have announced the launch of a new joint initiative: to explore cellular agriculture and other alternative proteins as a possible solution to food insecurity in the US and around the world.

Reaching across the border: USA-Mexico symposium discusses big ideas for the future

The USA-Mexico border has its share of issues: from immigration and security to economic and ecological uncertainty. But there are many who see tremendous opportunities about to unfold. In a unique bilateral event organized by Purdue University, University of Texas El Paso, and Universidad Autonoma de Ciudad Juarez, experts gathered to discuss these big ideas in El Paso on day one, and then across the border in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico on day two.
