Stiffness-dependent separation of cells
Gautam Rangavajla

Early diagnosis of disease is always a priority in medical treatment. In general, the earlier a disease is detected and treated, the greater the patient's chance of recovery. Many diseases including cancer and pathogenic conditions...


The pervasive applications of nanotechnology
Amrita Banerjee

Nanotechnology is at the forefront of being pervasive in all aspects of our daily lives. In the complimentary fields of electronics and nanotechnologies, the application possibilities for the benefit of mankind are vast. Nanotechnology-based advances...


Novel stem cell culture leads to osteoporosis prevention in diabetics
Brandon Philbrick

New insights reveal the cellular relationship between osteoporosis and diabetes, and provide an avenue to potential medical therapies. The researchers in the Temenoff lab at Georgia Tech have taken it upon themselves to examine this...


The pouch microbiome and its long-term impact on human health
Abigail Shockey & Frank Stewart, PhD

The human body houses billions of bacterial symbionts, the majority of which are beneficial in nature. Arguably the most important of these symbionts are housed within the large intestine. Generally, it is unlikely that an...


Denoising electromyographic signals via stationary wavelet decomposition and filtering
Rehman Ali, Gareth Guvanasen & Stephen Deweerth, PhD

The measurement of electromyographic (EMG) activity may be used to diagnose neuromuscular disorders, to control electrical devices through muscle-computer interfaces, or to return motor function via neuroprosthetic devices. Unfortunately, EMG measurements will often contain noise,...


Biofilm production regulates horizontal gene
Sarah Wilson, Eryn Bernardy & Brian Hammer, PhD

The waterborne bacterial pathogen Vibrio cholerae utilizes a cell-cell communication system called quorum sensing to coordinate group behavior in both a human host and aquatic environments. Virulence genes like the cholera toxin, biofilm genes for...


Neuroengineering: A Glimpse into the Mind
Lakshmi Raju

Neuroengineering, or Neural Engineering is a complex and vast subject that has yet to be fully understood. Neurons employ electrochemical pulses to communicate with each other. By utilizing this information, engineers try to develop methods...


Engineering a Cure for Sickle Cell Disease
Alicia Lane

Sickle cell disease is a blood disorder caused by a point mutation in the gene for hemogloblin that is characterized by chronic pain, inflammation, stroke, and shortened life expectancy. Though sickle cell disease affects millions...
