A lifesaving device more than 20 years in the making has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The clearance allows a company, co-founded by Associate Department Head Dr. Duncan Maitland, to begin to market the medical device.
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. H. Gene Hawkins, a professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been named this year’s public-sector recipient for the John “Jake” Landen Memorial Highway Safety Award. The annual award is supported by the American Road and Transportation Builders Association and Traffic Safety Industry Division, and recognizes individuals from public and private sectors who have made significant contributions to roadway infrastructure safety.
Dr. Daniel A. Jiménez, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been appointed the interim chair of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society Technical Committee on Computer Architecture (TCCA).
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.
Dr. Maria Koliou, an assistant professor in the Zachry Department of Civil Engineering at Texas A&M University, has been awarded a RAPID grant from the National Science Foundation to investigate the seismic resilience of wood frame building systems and explore the efficiency of various seismic retrofit/repair solutions in enhancing urban community resilience.
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.
Dr. M. Katherine Banks, vice chancellor and dean of engineering, has appointed Dr. Michael J. McShane head of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University. The appointment will be effective June 1.
Researchers in the Texas A&M University College of Engineering are conducting research on arsenic intake in rice plants during their cultivation, which may decrease the number of health issues caused across the globe from this important staple crop.
