Lab-On-A-Chip Device for Disease Diagnostics

RNA-based viruses and bacteria have been sources of large-scale epidemics and pandemics, most notably Ebola, SARS, influenza, hepatitis C, HIV, and the Zika Virus. Normal detection of these biological agents requires multiple lab processes. This project aims to develop a fully integrated lab-on-a-chip device to accomplish this.

Design of a Fluid-Powered Solar Tracker for Solar Panels

The study’s objective was to design, build, and test a full-scale, self-powered solar tracking mechanism incorporating a damper system to reduce wind flutter.

Engineering Biospecificity into a Single Albumin-Binding Domain

Monoclonal antibodies have been widely used in nearly all areas of life science for over three decades and represent a growing class of agents also in the clinics, mainly due to their generally high specificity and excellent pharmacokinetic properties. Today, regulatory authorities have approved over 20 monoclonal antibodies for therapeutic or diagnostic use.

Smart Flood Sensor: Predicting Water Accumulation

The researcher developed a Smart Flood sensor that can not only help identify drain openings that are getting clogged in real-time, but can also determine areas where more drain pipes are needed.

Spatial Learning Depends on Both the Addition and Removal of New Hippocampal Neurons

It was classically assumed that once the development of the central nervous system ended, “everything can die, nothing can regenerate and be renewed”. This dogma, restricting neurogenesis to a developmental phenomenon has, however, been challenged by the discovery that new neurons are created in specific regions of the adult mammalian brain.

Reduced insulin signaling maintains electrical transmission in a neural circuit in aging flies

Synapses undergo age-associated morphological and functional changes in a number of model organisms and in humans. In the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and the worm Caenorhabditis elegans, synaptic changes were seen during normal aging in both central and peripheral parts of the nervous system and linked to cognition, memory, learning, locomotor, and homeostatic deficits.
