NC State Researchers Receive $17M Grant to Explore Links Between Contaminants and Liver Cancer

The grant was awarded by the National Institutes of Health and will support research led by Distinguished Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences Catherine Hoyo. This research — the first large-scale project to examine the link between environmental contaminants, liver disease and cancer in a residentially and ethnically diverse population — will result in a data and specimen repository that will provide NC State and the broader research community with a valuable resource to study hepatocellular carcinoma, the most common type of liver cancer, and other cancers.

Statistician Ghoshal Named Goodnight Distinguished Professor

The College of Sciences has named Subhashis Ghoshal of the Department of Statistics as a Goodnight Distinguished Professor in Statistics, a professorship made possible by a gift from longtime NC State supporters Dr. Jim and Mrs. Ann Goodnight. Ghoshal is an accomplished statistician who joined the NC State faculty in 2001. His work focuses on high and infinite dimensional models, Bayesian inference and various applications of nonparametric Bayesian methodologies. He works on data analysis and modeling for biomedical applications.

Using Liquid Metal To Turn Motion Into Electricity — Even Underwater

Researchers at NC State have created a soft and stretchable device that converts movement into electricity and can work in wet environments. The researchers, who include Michael Dickey, Camille and Henry Dreyfus Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, have two related projects under way: one aimed at using the technology to power wearable devices by increasing the harvester’s power output, and the other for evaluating how this technology could be used to harvest wave power from the ocean.

NC State Researchers Develop Framework for More Efficient Adoption of Medical Innovations

Significant amounts of time, money and energy go into developing new, effective diagnostic tests — countless research hours, millions of dollars in equipment and dedicated laboratory space — but what happens when medical providers elect not to use these new tools for reasons such as a perceived increase in their workload? A question like this led to a research project by a team that includes Sebastian Heese, department head and Owens Distinguished Professor of Supply Chain Management at Poole College of Management.

Researchers Demonstrate Technique for Recycling Nanowires in Electronics

Researchers at NC State have demonstrated a low-cost technique for retrieving nanowires from electronic devices that have reached the end of their utility and then using those nanowires in new devices. The work is a step toward more sustainable electronics. Yong Zhu, corresponding author of the paper, is the Andrew A. Adams Distinguished Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at NC State.

The Dickey Group Goes Digital with Virtual Lab Tour

This fall, DELTA Express Grants are providing three new funding opportunities for faculty and instructors dedicated to applying learning technology in innovative, collaborative ways. Michael Dickey, Camille and Henry Dreyfus Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and a University Faculty Scholar, needed a way to make his team’s laboratory accessible and navigable. DELTA helped create an immersive virtual tour for the Dickey group, which studies soft materials such as liquid metals, gels and polymers and hosts undergraduates, grad students and visiting scholars from around the world.

With New Distinguished Chair, Family’s Heartfelt Gift Creates Lasting Impact

Andy Quattlebaum loved the outdoors and animals, especially his yellow Labrador retriever, Oak. After his unexpected death, Andy’s parents, Don and Hayden Blackwell Quattlebaum, looked for special opportunities to provide meaningful and lasting support for his greatest passions. One of those special opportunities resulted in the establishment of the Andy Quattlebaum Distinguished Chair in Infectious Disease Research at NC State’s College of Veterinary Medicine, which is held by Professor of Internal Medicine Adam Birkenheuer.
