  • An aerosol, by definition, is a gaseous mixture of particles. Aerosol routes offer many distinct advantages in particles’ design and synthesis such as high rates of direct gas-to-particle conversion, high-purity products, as well as fast, continuous, and scalable processes. These processes are widely used in research and industry since they offer great control and flexibility in tailoring...
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are currently the most dynamic growth sector of the international aerospace industry. Industry predictions are that in the next 3 to 4 years, more than 70,000 jobs will be created in the UAV area with an economic impact of more than $13.6 billion. By 2025, that could increase to more then 100,000 jobs and an economic impact of $82 billion....
  • The work environment for Anesthesiologists in the surgical theater, ICU and patient transport is little changed for decades. Significant improvements can be made in patient safety, ergonomics and work flow for anesthesiologists, technicians and nurses. There are a number of potential projects which individually can significantly improve the environment for anesthesiologists and other providers...
  • Overactive bladder (OAB) occurs during bladder filling and affects ~20% of the adult US population. The current tool for evaluating bladder filling is a urodynamics study which uses a catheter to fill the bladder while pressure is measured. Tension sensitive nerves in the bladder wall are responsible for providing bladder fullness information to the brain and increased bladder wall tension...
  • Medical device development is a growing industry, with a total revenue of about $110 billion and a projected growth rate of 5%. Electro-medical/therapeutic devices currently occupy about 33% of that market. In the Electromagnetics lab, researchers apply electromagnetic principles to the design and development of diagnostic and therapeutic tools, primarily in the area of cancer and diabetes...
  • There is a critical need to automatically extract and synthesize knowledge and trends in nanotechnology research from an exponentially increasing body of literature. New engineered nanomaterials (ENMs), such as nanomedicines, are continuously being discovered and Natural Language Processing (NLP) approaches can semi‐automate the cataloging of ENMs and their unique physico‐chemical properties....
  • Since 1979 when the first transdermal delivery of scopolamine was approved in the US, transdermal drug delivery (TDD) has been of a great interest due to the enhanced delivery effectiveness compared to the conventional oral intake that has a limitation of diminished drug concentration in the body. The TDD method has demonstrated that it can resolve issues of inconvenient intravenous injections....
