Imagine a minimally invasive treatment that eradicates cancer cells with no major side effects. That’s the promise of magnetic nanoparticle hyperthermia, and it just came one step closer to clinical reality thanks to UB research.
A nightmarish strain of Klebsiella pneumoniae that can blind or even kill healthy people within days is getting more common, but doctors have so far been unable to identify it. Fortunately, UB researchers are on the case.
These beaver-like robots constantly scan and react to their environment, organically building structure out of randomness—an innovation with major implications for search-and-rescue.
An ancient Japanese paper art is the inspiration for UB engineers who are designing flexible electrical components, key for futuristic tech like smart clothing, electronic skin and bendable screens.
