The Texas A&M University System will join a consortium of higher education institutions and state agencies that will offer expertise, research and innovations in support of the U.S. Army Futures Command (AFC) in Austin, the U.S. Army announced Friday from the Pentagon.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and the Texas A&M University Division of Research hosted a National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Proposal Writing Workshop, featuring Dr. George Hazelrigg, a former NSF program officer who has been speaking at similar workshops for more than 15 years.
Researchers in the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (CVM) and the Texas A&M College of Engineering have teamed up to begin filling that gap in the biomedical engineering field--that of veterinary medicine-by exploring the possibilities of what can be accomplished when innovative minds come together.
Dr. Andreas A. Polycarpou, Dr. John A. Rogers and mechanical engineering graduate teaching fellow Mohammad Humood from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Texas A&M University are conducting research to help further the broader engineering goal to develop flexible, wearable electronic devices, which can be integrated into clothes, glasses, skin and even inside the human body.
In a collaborative study involving Equal Channel Angular Extrusion (ECAE), a unique severe plastic deformation (SPD) process, researchers Dr. Ibrahim Karaman from Texas A&M University and Drs. Don Susan and Andrew Kustas of Sandia National Laboratories were able to improve the mechanical properties of magnetic alloys without changing their magnetic properties through microstructural refinement. This process has proven to be troublesome in the past.
Matthew Gardner, a doctoral student in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, is studying the use of magnetic gears and their advantages over the traditional mechanically geared machines.
Tokunbo “TJ” Falohun, a graduate student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University, recently was granted a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, a prestigious award given to graduate students.
Three researchers from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering have received funding to develop a wearable, noninvasive, reliable, inexpensive and proactive device to detect and prevent hypoglycemic events in diabetic patients.
When biomedical researchers have a technology they believe can help patients, they want to get it into the clinic as soon as possible. However, some therapies that look promising in the lab are challenging to “scale up” and produce in sufficient quantities to test in a larger group, or eventually make broadly available to patients.
