A man with gray hair and a beard, wearing safety goggles, a white lab coat, and blue latex gloves holds a test tube as a woman with blonde hair, wearing safety goggles, blue latex gloves, and a white lab coat fills a pipette with yellow liquid. Next to her, a woman with black hair pulled into a bun, wearing safety goggles and a white lab coat looks through a microscope. Behind them, a man with brown hair and wearing a white lab coat is out of focus as he peers through a microscope. Everyone is in a laboratory setting.

Twelve research projects have been chosen for funding as part of The Texas A&M University System National Laboratories Office’s multi-element program to increase engagement between researchers from the A&M System and the Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Innovation was on full display this week at the sixth annual Texas A&M New Ventures Competition hosted by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station. Dr. Albert Huang’s company Allotrope Medical took home the top $50,000 prize for the StimSite technology.

A close-up view of the printing technology developed by Dr. Micah Green and his collaborators at Essentium, Inc.

Despite their popularity, printed plastic parts have poor strength because the printed layers aren’t bonded well. Researchers from Texas A&M University, in collaboration with Essentium, Inc., have now developed the technology to boost inter-layer bonding during printing.

Dr. Roderic I. Pettigrew, a Ph.D. and M.D. who is the Robert A. Welch Professor in the College of Medicine and professor of biomedical engineering in the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been elected into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Barrels containing nuclear waste that are stacked on each other.

About 95% of the starting fuel rod used in nuclear reactors is unused and discarded as nuclear waste in the United States. Researchers with Texas A&M Engineering have discovered a one-step, proliferation-resistant solution for recycling used nuclear fuel that will drastically reduce waste.
