Engineering Safer Drinking Water In Africa - Science Nation

Access to safe drinking water is a global problem for nearly a billion people. For approximately 200 million people, many in Africa, high levels of naturally occurring fluoride in the water causes disfiguring and debilitating dental and skeletal disease. University of Oklahoma (OU) environmental scientist Laura Brunson is back from Ethiopia where, with support from the National Science Foundation, she's developing fluoride filtering devices that use inexpensive materials readily available right there in the villages. Brunson is a graduate student in ...

Electronic Tattoo Monitors Brain, Heart And Muscles - Science Nation

Imagine if there were electronics able to prevent epileptic seizures before they happen, or electronics that could be placed on the surface of a beating heart to monitor its functions. The problem is that such devices are a tough fit. Body tissue is soft and pliable while conventional circuits can be hard and brittle--at least until now. We're trying to bridge that gap, from silicon, wafer-based electronics to biological, 'tissue-like' electronics, to really blur the distinction between electronics and the ...

Bionic Leg Makes Amputee Faster On His Feet - Science Nation

A shark attack survivor now knows what it feels like to be part bionic man. 23-year-old amputee Craig Hutto has volunteered to play guinea pig, testing a state-of-the-art prosthetic leg with powered knee and ankle joints. With early support from the National Science Foundation and continued support from the National Institutes of Health, Vanderbilt University mechanical engineer Michael Goldfarb has spent several years developing the leg, which operates with special sensors, an electric motor, a battery and computer technology. Sensors ...

Breakthrough In Early Cancer Detection - Science Nation

With few early symptoms, ovarian cancer — like many cancers — can be hard to detect without invasive and expensive procedures. Early detection is absolutely not only key but probably the only way for us to win the war on cancer, says Vadim Backman who is a biomedical engineer at Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. With support from the National Science Foundation, in part funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), Backman's research is shedding light on how early ...

Catching A Coral Killer - Science Nation

We often hear about insects and other animals passing on diseases to humans, so-called zoonotic diseases, such as rabies, cholera, West Nile virus, etc...Now, for the first time, researchers are examining a disease that humans are spreading to an animal, specifically Elkhorn coral off the Florida Keys. With support from the National Science Foundation, Rollins College biologist Kathryn Sutherland is tracing this emerging infectious disease phenomenon, known as reverse zoonosis. Elkhorn coral was once the most common coral in ...

Climate Change And Other Threats To World's Freshwater Goliaths - Science Nation

The Large Lakes Observatory (LLO) helps an interdisciplinary group of scientists use oceanographic research approaches to investigate the mysteries of large lakes, and that includes everything from large-scale reactions to climate change to new microbes and other forms of life. With support from the National Science Foundation, LLO scientists work to better understand the biology, chemistry, physics, and geology of these bodies of water. In the summer of 2011, LLO scientists completed a 17- day research cruise on Lakes Superior, Huron, ...

New Sensor System Tracks Firefighters Where Gps Fails - Science Nation

Firefighters risk their lives every time they run into a burning building. But, new technology may soon be watching their backs, no matter how far they venture into the flames and smoke. With support from the National Science Foundation, TRX systems is developing a new sensor system that can track firefighters where GPS units often fail. Firefighters who are currently testing the new system wear a portable device called the Sentrix tracking unit, which is actually a suite of sensors ...
