A New Approach to Ultrasound Imaging

NC State researchers have demonstrated a new technique for creating ultrasound images. The novel approach is substantially simpler than existing techniques and could significantly drive down technology costs. Co-corresponding authors of a paper on the work are Xiaoning Jiang, a Duncan Distinguished Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Franky So, Walter and Ida Freeman Distinguished Professor of Materials Science and Engineering.

Artificial Intelligence: A Game Changer for the Chemical Manufacturing Industry

Chemicals can be found in everyday products from cars and medicines to toys and clothes, but their production can have adverse effects on the environment, including the release of greenhouse gases. The chemical manufacturing industry increasingly is using artificial intelligence to help reduce its environmental footprint. A study being led by Yuan Yao, an assistant professor of sustainability science and engineering in the Department of Forest Biomaterials at NC State’s College of Natural Resources, may help. The research is funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Platelet Microparticles Give Antibody Drug ‘Piggyback Ride’ to Repair Damaged Heart

Ke Cheng, the Randall B. Terry Jr. Distinguished Professor in Regenerative Medicine at the NC State College of Veterinary Medicine, is part of a research team that recently found platelet microparticles to be an effective way to deliver therapeutic drugs directly to the heart following a heart attack, increasing drug concentration at the site.

Fusing Disciplines, Transforming Graduate Education

The Agricultural Biotechnology in Food, Energy and Water Systems program is showing graduate students the full spectrum of issues in biotech and genetic engineering, from the lab, to the field, to the public square. And it’s an approach that could inform how we seek solutions to other grand challenges, explains Jennifer Kuzma, Goodnight-NC GSK Foundation Distinguished Professor in the School of Public and International Affairs and co-director of the Genetic Engineering and Society Center.
