A group of CSL Professor Tim Bretl's Illinois students have developed a 3D printed prosthetic hand that is helping amputees at a much more afforadable price. MD/PhD candidate Aadeel Akhtar and MS student Mary Nguyen are leading the effort with Bretl. Their work has recently been featured in a variety of media outlets, including Central Illinois' WAND, Albuquerque's KOB and around campus.
Professor Joseph Lyding discusses his word on 2D materials and carbon nanotubes in the digital magazine "International Innovation," issue #160.
EP Purification, a company specializing in developing and commercializing ozone generators for purifying water, received almost $400,000 from the EPA for their research. The company was co-founded by CSL professor J. Gary Eden. Read the story by The News-Gazette.
Because of the widespread presence of embedded controllers in vehicles, medical devices, and water, power and gas supply systems, there is an urgent need for efficient and accurate ways to ensure those systems’ reliability. Such systems are usually tested via simulations, but simulation can overlook defects. CSL Professor Sayan Mitra (ECE) and CS Professor Mahesh Viswanathan were recently awarded $500,000 from the National Science Foundation to support a grant entitled “From Simulations to Proofs for Cyberphysical Systems” that will seek additional ways to verify such systems in conjunction with simulations.
The National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) and the CompGen initiative are sponsoring two Spring 2015 fellowships for graduate students working in biology, bioinformatics, computational biology, or biologically-relevant computational science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Professor Joseph W. Lyding has won the 2014 Award for Outstanding Research from the Prairie Chapter of the American Vacuum Society “for pioneering developments in scanning tunneling microscopy instrumentation and their applications to nanotechnology.”
