In our latest Tech Blog and video, we spoke with inventors in the College of Pharmacy, Drs. Heidi Mansour and Rick Schnellmann, about how they reformulated a 100-year old drug to treat cancer and diabetes patients. This technology is available for license.
With funds from the National Institute of Health, Nathan Cherrington, Ph.D., ATS, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies and Professor at the College of Pharmacy has created a non-invasive diagnostic for Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH), a chronic liver disease.
Off campus at the Entomology Farm, behind the trays and trays of mealworms and various insects native to Arizona, is Goggy Davidowitz, Ph.D., a professor in the Department of Entomology, who has created an innovative way to repurpose food waste to produce sustainable insect protein for food products.
Funded by the American Cancer Society and the National Cancer Institute at the NIH, Jacob Schwartz, Ph.D., professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the UA College of Science, has created a new drug treatment for cancer with a focus on Ewing’s sarcoma.
With life-critical systems like pacemakers, insulin pumps and more, how can we protect users from malware? Roman Lysecky, PhD, professor at the UA Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering has created multi-modal software that allows the user to interact with the system through various modes, potentially saving lives.
Funded by the US National Science Foundation, Kathleen Melde, PhD, professor and Prabhat Baniya, PhD candidate, have created a chip-level “add-on” module that enables (multi-core) chip-to-chip wireless communication using reconfigurable antennas. Check out our video interview with Kathie and Prabhat.
Patricia Stock, PhD, professor at the University of Arizona Department of Entomology and Interim Director of the School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences has discovered compounds derived from an insect opathogenic bacterium, Photorhabdus, that have antimicrobial and nematicidal properties that can potentially replace the use of harmful chemical pesticides.
Funded by the National Eye Institute in the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and Tech Launch Arizona, Jim Schwiegerling, PhD, professor at the University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences has developed a series of lenses that might shorten your trip to the eye doctor.
Funded by NIH and the Packard Foundation, Michael Worobey and Tom Watts set out to push the limits of genome sequencing. Their findings have the potential of enhancing our ability to fight pandemics.
