With awards presented in 84 different categories, what does it mean today to produce award-worthy audio? Student host Nick Bruno ’17 checks in with Grammy Award-winner sound engineer Stephen Roessner, a lecturer in the University’s audio and music engineering program.
Most academic grants come with money, but Hussein Aluie has received a research boost that money can’t buy. The assistant professor of mechanical engineering has been awarded access to the supercomputer Mira, which will allow his team to do in four days what it would take a desktop computer more than 2,000 years to complete.
Researchers at the Rochester Medical Center are the first to be able to make out the individual cells at the back of the eye that are implicated in vision loss in diseases like glaucoma. They hope their revolutionary new technique could prevent vision loss via earlier diagnosis and treatment for these diseases.
Associate professor Chris Muir devised a unusual way to teach his mechanical engineering class how to use the many tools available at the Fabrication Laboratory in Rettner Hall, with a surprising final result.
Wendi Heinzelman is officially installed as the first woman to serve as dean of the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. During the ceremony, Heinzelman talked about the importance of increasing the representation of women and under-represented minorities in engineering, and the goals of the Hajim School.
Kevin Parker, whose discoveries have been widely applied in medical imaging and image processing, has been named a fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. Parker, the William F. May Professor and dean emeritus of engineering, holds or shares 25 U.S. and 13 international patents with a range of applications.
A team of University researchers is exploring the possibility that stem cells on the outer edges of the cornea, given the right stimulation, can replace damaged cells. The work raises the possibility of restoring vision without the need for cornea transplants.
University researchers hope to improve the odds of surviving acute myeloid leukemia by loading a promising compound into nanoparticles that will target the inner recesses of bone marrow where leukemia stem cells lurk.
