Research Stories

Researchers have designed a device that can destroy colorectal cancer cells using photodynamic therapy techniques. This, when used alongside surgery, can reduce the need for additional treatments.

HelioSAFE is a fast, high-efficiency and automated sterility testing system that uses miniaturization lab-on-a-chip microfluidic-based approaches to detect contamination in therapeutics and therapeutic manufacturing workflows. It was developed by researchers at Texas A&M University and a new startup company, HelioWave Technologies LLC.

A Texas A&M University and University of Oklahoma team of researchers will establish an efficient plastic waste biodegradation strategy thanks to a $2 million grant from the National Science Foundation's Emerging Frontiers in Research and Innovation program.
