New Nanophotonic Material Can Turn Heat to Electricity

A new heat-resistant nanophotonic material has broken records for stability at high temperatures, and shows promise for use to turn heat into electricity. Research at the University of Michigan might be used for more efficient electricity production from thermal radiation. A team of chemical and materials science engineers developed the material, which can control flow…

Nano-Engineered Brain Cancer Treatment Might Kill Tumor Cells and Activate Immune System

A new nanomedicine out of the University of Michigan uses a protein that crosses the blood-brain barrier carrying a drug that kills tumor cells and another drug that activates the immune system to fight brain cancer. That’s the news along with an announcement of $2.38 million to test the new cancer treatment in mice in Ann Arbor. The new medicine is targeting the most aggressive form of brain cancer, glioblastoma. The funding comes from the National Institutes of Health to test the technology at the University of Michigan.

University of Michigan Founds New Department of Robotics, a First Among Top Engineering Schools

The University of Michigan Board of Regents has just approved the creation of a new Department of Robotics for the university, a first among the nation’s top 10 engineering schools. According to the University of Michigan, “The new department will define robotics as a discipline, teaching students the skills needed to help drive a rapidly expanding field.” This marks a first among top engineering schools around the U.S. by creating a full department to focus on the advancing field of robotics as its own discipline.
