UNH Researchers Create New Concept That Could Lead to Improved Drug Delivery

Inspired by a color changing mechanism found in cephalopods, like squid, cuttlefish and octopus, researchers at the University of New Hampshire have conceived a design for a unique sequential cell-opening mechanism that has many potential applications from drug delivery to color altering camouflage materials.

UNH Researchers Find Campus Sexual Violence Significantly Affects Academics

While much needed programs, and past studies, have predominately focused on the mental health effects of such violent acts on students, new research by the University of New Hampshire shows that aggressive sexual acts can also adversely impact school work and overall college experience.

Desert Lessons Could Help Prevent Kidney Injury From Severe Dehydration

Millions of people die every year from dehydration as a result of exposure and illness. In humans, even the most minor dehydration can compromise the kidneys causing lifelong, irreparable issues or even death. However, some animals living in desert environments are able to survive both acute and chronic dehydration. While these animals, like cactus mice, have evolved over time to deal with environmental stressors like dehydration, researchers at the University of New Hampshire have found it’s not the physical makeup that is helping them survive, but rather their genetic makeup.

Innovative Way to Understand Nature of an Entire Tiny Particle

New research from the University of New Hampshire has led to the development of a novel technique to determine the surface area and volume of small particles, the size of a grain of sand or smaller. Due to their tiny size, irregular shape and limited viewing angle, commonly used microscopic imaging techniques cannot always capture the whole object’s shape often leaving out valuable information that can be important in numerous areas of science, engineering and medicine.

Experts Available in Wake of London Attacks

Faculty members at the University of New Hampshire are available to discuss terrorism and homeland security in the wake of Saturday’s London attacks. James Ramsay, professor of security studies, and Melinda Negrón-Gonzales, assistant professor of political studies, can talk about homeland security and terrorism, respectively, as they relate to the attacks in both Manchester and London, England.
