Lab on a Chip Could Monitor Health, Germs and Pollutants

LabChip2RUTodayimage_highresolution.jpg

Imagine wearing a device that continuously analyzes your sweat or blood for different types of biomarkers, such as proteins that show you may have breast cancer or lung cancer. Rutgers engineers have invented biosensor technology – known as a lab on a chip – that could be used in hand-held or wearable devices to monitor your health and exposure to dangerous bacteria, viruses and pollutants.

Heterogeneous nanostructured materials are widely used in various optoelectronic devices, including solar cells. However, the nano-interfaces contain structural defects that can affect performance. Calculations run at NERSC helped researchers ID the root cause of the defects in two materials and provide design rules to avoid them.

"Immunoswitch" Particles May Be Key to More-Effective Cancer Immunotherapy

SchneckPRimage.JPG

Scientists at Johns Hopkins have created a nanoparticle that carries two different antibodies capable of simultaneously switching off cancer cells' defensive properties while switching on a robust anticancer immune response in mice. Experiments with the tiny, double-duty "immunoswitch" found it able to dramatically slow the growth of mouse melanoma and colon cancer and even eradicate tumors in test animals, the researchers report.

Oyster Shells Inspire New Method to Make Superstrong, Flexible Polymers

KumarfigureACSCentraloystershellpaper.jpg

Columbia Engineers developed a technique inspired by the nacre of oyster shells, a composite material that has extraordinary mechanical properties, including great strength and resilience. By changing the crystallization speed of a polymer mixed with nanoparticles, the team controlled how nanoparticles self-assemble into structures at three different length scales. This multiscale ordering can make the base material almost an order of magnitude stiffer while retaining the desired deformability and lightweight behavior of the polymeric materials.
