NSF's National High Magnetic Field Laboratory empowers scientific exploration in materials, energy and life
Black holes, star births and deaths, colliding galaxies and more are all in a day's work at the VLA
Chemistry team creates synthetic versions of proteins with improved properties
Affordable sensors dramatically improve aging stormwater community infrastructures to handle flooding, pollution
Multidisciplinary team tackles challenges to make sweat as important as blood for health monitoring
Community, students and scientists benefit from partnership to assess particulate matter pollution
Computer science team lights up faster, more secure data transmission to meet future demands
Engineers investigating impact of krill swarms on ocean mixing, and possibly global climate
Center for Biomechanical and Rehabilitation Engineering lab inspires STEM careers by focusing students on helping the elderly
This sustainable agriculture research relies on a unique contribution from humans -- urine.
Harvard team is advancing soft, wearable robots with embedded sensors for hand and arm rehabilitation
Lee Blaney's lab at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, smells somewhat like a barnyard, and with good reason. With support from the National Science Foundation, the environmental engineer and his team are extracting nutrients from poultry litter to create a new revenue stream for farmers and help the environment at the same time
With support from the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences, psychologist Brad Duchaine and his team are studying the brains of 20 people with acquired prosopagnosia to better understand the computational and neural basis of face processing
With support from the National Science Foundation, geologist Jeff Moore and his team are pioneering a new method of structural health monitoring to keep tabs on the structural integrity of spectacular geological landmarks
The transplanting of bone tissue, known as bone grafting, typically involves allograft, which is bone from a deceased donor, or autograft, which comes from the patient's own body
These roboticists may work on opposite U.S. coasts, but they envision the same future for work on the water -- fleets of boats and ships operating more safely, efficiently and less expensively with the help of robotics
Gelsy Torres-Oviedo leads a research team that uses rehabilitation robotics and motion capture cameras to study "locomotor learning."
With support from the National Science Foundation, developmental biologist Arnaud Martin and his team at George Washington University are using cutting-edge genomic techniques, such as CRISPR, to better understand how the rich stripes and swirls of a butterfly's wing take their shape
With support from the National Science Foundation, computer scientist Shwetak Patel and his team at the University of Washington are developing new sensing systems to empower people to make better-informed decisions for themselves and their homes
