100 days of science (Arizona Daily Star)
Tucson’s Arizona Daily Star Centennial salute to science has recently featured several ASU engineering faculty.
Engineer’s handheld sensors will help diagnose, treat diseases like asthma
Nongjian Tao, professor of electrical engineering, for his work using sensor technology to diagnose and treat chronic diseases.
Bacteria found to clean up pollution
Bruce Rittmann, Regent’s Professor, School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, for his work managing microbial communities to employ certain bacteria to help clean up pollution.
Sonic device may have wide medical use
Bruce Towe, professor, School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering, for his work using neurostimulation to treat a wide range of applications.
Breakthrough technology focuses in on disease traits of single cells (EurekAlert)
Deirdre Meldrum, ASU Senior Scientist and Professor, and her colleagues at Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute are pioneering a kind of miniaturized laboratory for the investigation of single cells. Known as the Cellarium, this live cell array technology will enable researchers to investigate the detailed behavior of individual cells—providing unprecedented insights into their role in disease processes.
Researchers pioneer game-changing approach for drought monitoring (ASU News)
Under the direction of ASU hydrologist Enrique Vivoni, a contingent of ASU researchers is leading a group from NASA Ames, California State University at Monterey Bay and a nonprofit research and development organization known as Planetary Skin Institute (PSI) in integrating multi-resolution, remote sensing-based drought indices into an online, cloud computing-based visualization platform.
