CALS Professors Vedantam and Viswanathan team up to develop prevention of and treatment for Clostridium difficile infection in humans and animals.
UA College of Engineering faculty Pierre Deymier and Keith Runge have developed an alternative to the standard quantum computing bits, which can greatly improve a system's speed and stability.
UA College of Medicine-Tucson faculty Dr. Monica Kraft and Dr. Julie Ledford have developed a novel treatment for asthma and other lung-related diseases via a series of peptides related to surfactant protein A (SP-A).

University of Arizona faculty member, Michael Grandner, develops novel software platform and wearable to address sleep insufficiency in conjunction with University of Pennsylvania faculty member, Michael Perlis.
Ph.D. student Mohamad Moussa and Professor Marek Rychlik in the University of Arizona Department of Mathematics, have developed an improved method for mitigating data loss due to faults in the storage medium (disk).
UA professor of ecology and evolutionary biology Michael Worobey, Ph.D., has invented a new, sensitive method for retrieving genetic material (RNA) from heavily damaged samples, which was published in Nature in 2016. The technology is now available for license.
A retro-reflector is a device or surface that is capable of reflecting light back to its source with minimal scattering. UA’s Russell Chipman, Ph.D., and Karlton Crabtree, Ph.D., created a novel design for a retro-reflector that increases the reflection efficiency while reducing the complexity of the system.
The most common method of managing pain is the use of opioids like morphine, oxycodone, and fentanyl, all of which are highly addictive. Research has shown that therapeutic exposure to low-intensity green light can reverse chronic pain.
Cryptosporidium is a protozoan parasite that lives in the intestine and is a major cause of moderate-to-severe diarrhea in humans and livestock worldwide. Michael Riggs, DVM, PhD, DACVP, has developed monoclonal antibodies capable of detecting Cryptosporidium antigens.
