The Northeast Hub, hosted by the Data Science Institute at Columbia, will accelerate community-driven innovation in data science with a $4 million NSF grant. The grant, a second round of NSF funding, validates the Hub's efforts to harness the data-science revolution in ways that benefit society.
Texas A&M AgriLife Research and the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, TEES, were recently awarded a grant from the US Department of Agriculture's National Institute of Food and Agriculture to study and develop super-repellent and anti-fouling surfaces for foods.
Jingsong Zhou is investigating the theory that ALS affects the physiology of the whole body through defective cells in multiple organs.
'Imagine a software system that can detect its own bugs and generate the patches to fix it.'
New research from the University of Pittsburgh will develop a neuromorphic vision system that takes a new approach to capturing visual information that is based on the human brain, benefitting everything from self-driving vehicles to neural prosthetics.
HIV testing is expensive ($50 to $200 per test), technically complex, and requires trained technicians. Researchers are developing a rapid, disposable, automated, and low-cost HIV viral load assay to increase timely access to HIV care and to improve treatment outcomes. The technology is highly sensitive, inexpensive (less than $1), and quick (results in 45 minutes or less). Moreover, the technology is highly stable, and doesn't require refrigeration or a regular electric supply to enable HIV viral load at point-of-care settings.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) recently announced the second phase of funding for the regional Big Data Innovation Hubs (Hubs). Each of the Hubs will receive $4 million over four years for a total investment of $16 million.
John Sample, assistant professor in the Department of Physics, and his team will launch a stadium-sized balloon from Sweden in 2022 to take the first ever high resolution images of a phenomenon similar to the northern lights.
In this first federally funded US cohort to study millennials, scientists will capture baseline lung health measurements of 4,000 healthy adults between the ages of 25 to 35 to identify an ideal picture of respiratory health and understand the key risk factors and biomarkers that are associated with impaired lung health.
A University of Texas at Arlington researcher who has done extensive research on Texas watersheds received a $499,981 grant to analyze regional drainage and propose recommendations for future flood prevention in nine counties in southeast Texas.
