Author: Becker, T. J. ; Ragauskas, Arthur J. ; Robinson, Rick ; Sanders, Jane M. ; Toon, John
Abstract: Taking Care of Bio-Business - Despite metropolitan areas’ fierce competition for attracting bioscience companies, Atlanta is experiencing growth in the industry. New Electronics - Circuitry based on graphite may provide a foundation for devices that handle electrons as waves. Conversion Experience Subsurface bacteria release phosphate to convert uranium contamination to immobile form. Inside View - Molecular imaging yields information on childhood respiratory virus, may lead to earlier diagnosis. Smart Munitions - Researchers use synthetic jet actuators to steer 40 mm projectiles in flight. Advanced Tools - Medical research on cystic fibrosis could benefit from multi-functional sensing tool. Data Sharing - Georgia Tech assists U.S. government agencies with National Information Exchange Model. Skin Deep - Imaging technologies may detect pressure ulcers and deep-tissue injuries that healthcareworkers may miss, especially in dark-skinned people. A First Responder's Best Friend - The Chemical Companion helps hazmat teams make critical decisions. Protecting Sensitive Data - Researchers develop fail-safe techniques for erasing magnetic storage data. Fake Drugs - Increase in counterfeit anti-malarial drugs prompts call for crackdown and better detection. No Pictures Please - Researchers develop system to thwart unwanted video and still photography. Special Delivery - New family of biodegradable polymers shows promise for intracellular drug delivery. Addressing Transportation Fuel Challenges - Collaborative research and policy development yield recommendations for making biofuels and biomaterials a practical alternative to petroleum.
