Blood-Brain Barrier, Protecting the Brain
After Margaret Bynoe and her lab discovered that an FDA-approved drug, Lexiscan, used in cardiac imaging, could open the blood-brain barrier, the lab went to work, exploring how it could be used as a therapeutic for brain diseases.
From Lab to Invaluable Energy Innovations
Lynden Archer is searching for ways to give fossil fuels a different life. His lab has already discovered some invaluable new processes and products.
Mindless Computing Technology for Health
A wrist device lowers heart rate; a bedside device monitors sleep quality; a dinner plate controls food quantity. Tanzeem Choudhury makes it happen.
Mobile Gene Content
Ilana L. Brito and her team are developing a suite of computational tools for examining the mobile gene content in multiple datasets — to identify those genes that may shape the response of microbial communities to stress.
Tackling Cyberfinance Security
Emin Gün Sirer’s research group developed and tested Falcon — which they call fast and fierce — for processing Bitcoin blockchains, digital transaction ledgers.
The Lifestyle of Bacteria
When bacteria live in a community known as biofilm, antibiotics can’t enter to fight infection. Holger Sondermann wants to disperse that community.
Innovating with Single-Molecule Imaging
As a pioneer of single-molecule imaging, Peng Chen applies the technology to studying metal atoms in cells, with implications for the development of antibacterial agents.
Sirtuins: New Understanding, New Inhibitors, and New Applications
Dr. Hening Lin is an Investigator in the Howard Hughes Medical Center and Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Cornell University. Dr. Lin’s understanding of sirtuin enzymatic activity has enabled the development of a potent sirtuin2-specific inhibitor called “TM.”
Dr. Benedict Law is an Assistant Professor of Pharmacology in Radiology at Weill Cornell Medicine. Dr. Law’s team is interested in a new type of two-dimensional nanomaterial, such as nanofiber (PF) that is biocompatible, able to penetrate inside a tumor, and has a short circulation time to avoid non-specific in vivo distribution with a high tumor uptake.
Soft Robotics for AR/VR
Dr. Robert Shepherd, Assistant Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and his team have developed foam actuators and sensors to create soft robotics that are safe for use in prosthetics and enhance augmented and virtual reality experiences.
Switchable Adhesion Device
Paul Steen, Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has developed a switchable electronically- controlled adhesion device that allows for maximum adhesion to various surfaces. Among the applications for the device are wafer handling, large-format printing, gripping gloves and shoes, and drone parking pods.
