GTRI researchers and scientists welcomed Georgia Tech undergraduate students this summer during the Undergraduate Research Internship Program, where they worked on 3D-printed modular medical imaging devices and more.
Corals exude chemical defenses against bacteria, but when heated in the lab, those defenses lost much potency against a pathogen common in coral bleaching. There's hope: A key coral's defense was heartier when that coral was taken from an area where fishing was banned and plenty of fish were left to eat away seaweed that was overgrowing corals elsewhere.
Renee Jamieson talks about her job as academic program coordinator in the College of Computing's School of Interactive Computing.
Georgia Tech researchers have developed a test that detects deadly zinc deficiencies in a single drop of the blood. The test could be made compact enough so that many fit in an aid worker’s pocket. It could help expose broad malnutrition in crisis regions. Credit: Georgia Tech / Brice Zimmerman / Allison Carter / image rights suitable for embedding YouTube link
Building conventional robots typically requires carefully combining components like motors, batteries, actuators, body segments, legs and wheels. Now, researchers have taken a new approach, building a robot entirely from smaller robots known as “smarticles” to unlock the principles of a potentially new locomotion technique.
Stan Broome, assistant director of Undergraduate Career Education in Geogia Tech's Scheller College of Business, talks about helping students achieve their goals.
Statues unveiled of Georgia Tech's first African American students and graduate.
Trailblazers: The Struggle and the Promise
Eeewww, a cockroach! Then it zips off before the swatter appears. Now, researchers have leveraged the bug’s superb scurrying skills to create a cleverly simple method to assess and improve locomotion in robots.
Jim Bridenstine, the Administrator of NASA and Congressman Tom Graves visited for a campus tour, taking the time to meet current students working on projects for NASA. The BioSentinel Mission involves a briefcase-sized CubeSat that holds a Georgia Tech-built thruster and the Ranging and Nanosatellite Guidance Experiment designed by students was part of the SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket which launched in December 2018.
Economic Development Forum held at The Biltmore on July 31, 2019.
A wireless, wearable monitor built with stretchable electronics could allow comfortable, long-term health monitoring of adults, babies and small children without concern for skin injury or allergic reactions caused by conventional adhesive sensors with conductive gels.
Researchers have created a new type of tiny 3D-printed robot that moves by harnessing vibration from piezoelectric actuators, ultrasound sources or even tiny speakers. Swarms of these “micro-bristle-bots” might work together to sense environmental changes, move materials – or perhaps one day repair injuries inside the human body.
