Viemetrics, a company that has developed a low-cost, portable spirometer that can potentially predict asthma attacks, won the $10,000 first prize prize for new ventures at the 2017 Lulu eGames yesterday. Lulu eGames awarded more than $100,000 in prize money across six different categories, including the Daugherty Endowment category for companies who have licensed NC State intellectual property.
The North Carolina Biotechnology Center awarded 14 loans and grants totaling $1.6 million to companies, universities and other bioscience entities in the third quarter of its 2016-2017 fiscal year ending March 31.
NCSU-RTI study offers hope, sheds light on how vets respond to trauma + Suit targets Army discharges
A new study of military veterans who went through trauma finds that those veterans who have related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are also more likely to experience "post-traumatic growth" - such as an increased appreciation of life, awareness of new possibilities and enhanced inner strength. Meanwhile, a lawsuit has been filed on behalf of veterans possibly suffering from PTSD that have received less-than-honorable discharges.
For the first time, researchers have been able to deposit an ultra-thin oxide ferroelectric film onto a flexible polymer substrate. The research team used the flexible ferroelectric thin films to make non-volatile memory devices that are wearable and resilient.
NCSU researchers create touch-sensitive, elastic fibers for new electronic device interface (+ video)
Researchers from North Carolina State University have created elastic, touch-sensitive fibers that can interface with electronic devices. "We have created soft and stretchable fibers that can detect touch, as well as strain and twisting," an NCSU professor says. "These microscopic fibers may be useful for integrating electronics in new places, including wearable devices."
A team of engineering researchers has made a fundamental advance in controlling so-called soft robots, using magnetic fields to remotely manipulate microparticle chains embedded in soft robotic devices. The researchers have already created several devices that make use of the new technique.
In an address as part of N.C. State's Executive Leadership Series, Brian Hamilton, the founder and chair of software firm Sageworks shares what he has learned - from successes to mistakes. "I think it's important for anyone starting a business to give themselves some latitude to make mistakes and fail," he says.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a technique that uses light to get two-dimensional (2-D) plastic sheets to curve into three-dimensional (3-D) structures, such as spheres, tubes or bowls.
Keystone-Centennial terminated the lease on March 17 due to Argos "non-payment of invoices for up-fit costs." The company has not disputed the termination of the lease and does not plan to correct the default.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a range of composite metal foams (CMFs) that can be used in applications from armor to hazardous material transport - and they're now looking for collaborators to help identify and develop new applications. To that end, the researchers are issuing a comprehensive overview and new data on their CMFs.
Ron Sederoff, an NC State forestry professor and pioneering molecular geneticist, has won the 2017 Marcus Wallenberg Foundation Prize, an international award for scientific achievements in fields important to forestry.
New research from North Carolina State University and the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) finds most executives see risks increasing in both number and complexity - but those same executives say their organizations' risk management efforts may not be staying abreast of those risks.
When it comes to crowdfunding for startups, turns out the size of the "crowd" - i.e. number of investors - is more important to financial success than the amount of money raised. So says a paper from N.C. State's Poole College of Management. Plus: Read the full paper abstract.
Inspired by origami, North Carolina State University researchers have found a way to remotely control the order in which a two-dimensional (2-D) sheet folds itself into a three-dimensional (3-D) structure.
Sam Taylor, NCBIO president, says that over the next two years, hNorth Carolina biotech manufacturers will need about 2,000 additional workers. Lobbying for full funding of North Carolina State University's biotech training program is thus a priority for NCBIO in 2017.
Long before there was the "cloud" or "big data," leaders in North Carolina helped establish what was then called grid computing to form the "North Carolina Bioinformatics Grid". It was a "moonshot," backers conceded. But their efforts helped researchers collaborate in new ways. Here's a look back at the launch of that pioneering effort.
Frances Ligler, a professor at NC State's College of Engineering, is among the latest scientists selected for the National Investors Hall of Fame. Ligler is being recognized for her work in developing optical biosensors which are used to identify pathogens, toxins or explosives among other threats.
To some it might seem surprising that four of the 23 universities named as sites and awarded grants under the National Science Foundation's National Nanotechnology Coordinating Infrastructure Program were in North Carolina. Here's why it's not a surprise to those who follow nanotech developments.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a wearable, wireless sensor that can monitor a person's skin hydration for use in applications that need to detect dehydration before it poses a health problem.
