Treating Cancer with Ionizing Radiation Acoustic Imaging (iRAI)

Radiation, used to treat half of all cancer patients, can be measured during treatment for the first time with precise 3D imaging. By capturing and amplifying tiny sound waves created when x-rays heat tissues in the body, medical professionals can map the radiation dose within the body, giving them new data to guide treatments in real time.

Programmable Smart Fabric Responds to Temperature and Electricity

A new smart material is activated by both heat and electricity, making it the first ever to respond to two different stimuli. The unique design paves the way for a wide variety of potential applications. Inexpensively made with polymer nano-composite fibers from recycled plastic, the programmable fabric can change its color and shape when stimuli are applied.

Bat ASC2: A Potent Negative Regulator of Inflammasomes

Bats are special in their ability to live long and host many emerging viruses. Previous studies showed that bats have altered inflammasomes, which are central players in aging and infection. However, the role of inflammasome signaling in combating inflammatory diseases remains poorly understood. Watch this video to see what bats can teach us about co-existing with viruses and preventing severe disease.
