Taking the Pain Out of Needles - Microneedles being developed by Georgia Tech offer a painless technique for delivering drugs. Thinner than a human hair, they could improve administration of existing medications and open the door for microprocessor-based, need-responsive delivery systems.The Life on Mars Debate - NASA scientists rocked the scientific world with the announcement that worm-like forms in a Mars rock might be nanofossils. A team of researchers, led by Georgia Tech Professor John Bradley, have other ideas about the findings.Technology Transfer - Moving the products of research from academia to industry is the goal — and achievement — of Georgia's Advanced Technology Development Center.Serving the Community - Communities dealing with complex environmental issues need independent, and free or low-cost technical expertise. Georgia Tech is strategically positioned to help.The Faculty View - Nanofossils or Non-Biological Magnetites?Help for the Industrial Fabric of Georgia - To help Georgia's textile industry remain competitive in world markets, Georgia Tech researchers, through CCACTI, are helping apply university-based knowledge to solve industry problems.Smart Sensor - A new environmental monitoring system based on integrated optic interferometric sensors will reduce costs and improve efficiency.
