Lumos can allow patients to quickly screen for glaucoma and detect the disease in its early stages. All the patient needs is a smartphone, and the app will identify the glaucoma risk rapidly and automatically.
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and aggressive type of primary brain tumor. Patients with GBM have a median survival of 15 months. Thus, treating GBM can be achieved by inhibiting the proliferation of the patient-derived cells using leaf extract of B. monnieri.
Wearable low power biometric devices and body sensor network systems (BSNs) such as heart, respiration, and activity monitors are popular devices that are predicted to increase tenfold by 2018. This project focused on biomechanical energy harvesting from rib cage expansion using piezoelectric materials and frequency up conversion to power wearable microelectronics.
Body armor is currently created using geometry based on Kevlar fabric. This research focuses on determining how to make the design stronger and more effective by using several combinations and strength thickening fluids.
Antibiotics have been extensively used to treat patients with infectious diseases for the last 70 years. As these drugs have been used widely for long time, the organisms the antibiotics are designed to kill have adapted to them, making the drugs less effective. This can be prevented through selective separation, identification and eradication using fluorescent, magnetic multifunctional carbon dots.
2018 ScienceBuzz Symposium
We are excited to announce the first annual ScienceBuzz Symposium, dedicated to middle and high school students. The conference and registration is completely free! Currently, the symposium date is June 9, 2018.
Pre-register for the symposium by visiting the conference website or clicking here. There are a limited number of seats and we expect to fill up quickly, so register ASAP. The event will include several internationally-renowned speakers, workshop sessions, company exhibitions, scholarships, and research presentations.
The 2018 ScienceBuzz Symposium is the first, completely free conference exclusively for middle and high school students. Our theme for this year is “One Day of Powerful Talks.”
It will be hosted in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, but will include students from around the state and nearby regions. The event will have national guest keynote speakers (including a Nobel Prize Laureate, the head of a leading scientific institution, college admissions officers, university professors, leaders in gifted education, and top biopharma executives). It will also include workshop sessions, student poster presentations, five research scholarship awards, organizational and company exhibitions, and unique networking opportunities.
