Ovarian cancer accounts for about three percent of cancers among women, but results in the most deaths. Raymond K. Kostuk Ph.D. and Jennifer Barton Ph.D. have dedicated their recent research to an imaging method and device for detection and diagnosis of ovarian cancer.
Most sunscreens are made with potentially harmful chemicals. Professor Douglas Loy, Ph.D., and graduate assistant Robb Bagge have developed new bio-based particles for sun-blocking purposes. The resulting sunscreens provide an inexpensive, non-toxic alternative that absorbs UV radiation.
Christopher Walker, Ph.D., a professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory, has developed a new transistor design that could be used for safer high-resolution medical imaging as well as security and radar imaging, spectroscopy and ultra-fast data links.
Parkinson’s disease often requires long-term use of levodopa, a therapy that can induce dyskinesia. To both treat and prevent levodopa-induced dyskinesia, two UA researchers have repurposed ketamine to improve Parkinson’s patients’ health and wellbeing.
