An interdisciplinary team of researchers has developed a smart patch designed to monitor a patient's blood and release blood-thinning drugs as needed to prevent the occurrence of dangerous blood clots - a condition known as thrombosis. In an animal model, the patch was shown to be more effective at preventing thrombosis than traditional methods of drug delivery.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a combination of software and hardware that will allow them to use unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and insect cyborgs, or biobots, to map large, unfamiliar areas - such as collapsed buildings after a disaster.
Leslie Boney III, vice president of international, community and economic engagement for the University of North Carolina system, has been named director of the Institute for Emerging Issues.
Some genetically engineered foods such as White Russet potatoes and Arctic apples that don't brown remain controversial. But not all food technology innovations discussed at the North Carolina Biotechnology Center's AgBiotech Summit 2016 earlier this month engender social fears.
The North Carolina Biotechnology Center awarded 17 grants and loans totaling $1,060,352 to companies, universities and nonprofit organizations across the state during the first quarter of its 2016-2017 fiscal year ending September 30.
Researchers at NCSU and in Finland have developed a multi-layered "sensing skin" to detect corrosive or otherwise harmful substances in structures. The skin can also detect cracks and other structural flaws that are invisible to the naked eye. Plus: Abstract of the NCSU research.
The number of people employed in North Carolina's clean energy sector is up from 2015's 26,000 despite legislative setback. Preliminary 2016 numbers will be disclosed at the NC Sustainable Energy Association conference in Raleigh today and Tuesday. NCSEA updates what's happening in an exclusive interview with WRAL TechWire.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have developed a new design for harvesting body heat and converting it into electricity for use in wearable electronics. The experimental prototypes are lightweight, conform to the shape of the body, and can generate far more electricity than previous lightweight heat harvesting technologies.
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the Intel Corporation have developed a new way to significantly accelerate core-to-core communication. Their advance relies on hardware to coordinate efforts between cores for multiprocessor operations.
If there is anything growing as fast as the Internet of Things, it's the IoT organization based in the Triangle formerly known as NC RIoT. With more than 3,000 members now and a growing reach of events, the group is evolving quickly into a business itself.
Adding to security headaches for Apple and iOS users, researchers at N.C. State have discovered security vulnerabilities in the operating system for iPhones and iPads. These holes differ from problems reported internationally about Apple security problems on Thursday.
Backed by grants from the National Science Foundation, the state of North Carolina and the North Carolina State University Daugherty Endowment Fund, Raleigh startup LUMEOVA says its patent-pending wireless technology will boost WIFi speeds. With billions of devices utilizing wireless, LUMEOVA believes it can help ensure networks can handle the growing load. The company is among the startups presenting at CED Tech Venture.
