Approach Paves Way for New Generation of Antimicrobial Materials
Researchers have successfully developed materials with the ability to render bacteria and viruses inactive using only ambient oxygen and visible-wavelength light. The new approach opens the door to a range of new products aimed at reducing the transmission of drug-resistant pathogens.
Building New Tools to Study the Epigenome
Researchers are developing molecular-scale tools that can monitor and/or modify the epigenome.
Flow Chemistry Technique Offers Faster, Safer Way to Screen, Study and Optimize Industrial Chemical Reactions
Researchers have developed a flow-based high-throughput screening technology that offers a faster, safer and less expensive means of identifying optimum conditions for performing high-pressure/high-temperature catalytic chemical reactions.

NC State undergrad Kobi Felton, a chemical engineering major who is minoring in Spanish, heads off to the United Kingdom next fall as a 2018 Marshall Scholar. Find out how his time at NC State changed his life.
Researchers Find Diffusion Plays Unusual Signaling Role in Drosophila Embryos
Research shows that diffusion plays an unexpected role in cell differentiation during the early stages of development in the embryos of Drosophila.
Tech Increases Microfluidic Research Data Output 100-fold
Researchers have developed a technique that allows users to collect 100 times more spectrographic information per day from microfluidic devices, compared to the previous industry standard.
Study Shows How Rough Microparticles Can Cause Big Problems
New research finds the surface texture of microparticles in liquid suspension can cause internal friction that significantly alters the suspension’s viscosity – effectively making the liquid thicker or thinner.
Researchers Set New Bar for Water-Splitting, CO2-Splitting Techniques
Researchers boost efficiency of techniques for splitting water to create hydrogen gas and splitting CO2 to create carbon monoxide.
Touch-Sensitive, Elastic Fibers Offer New Interface for Electronics
NC State researchers have created elastic, touch-sensitive fibers that can interface with electronic devices.
Researchers Control Soft Robots Using Magnetic Fields
Engineers have made a fundamental advance in controlling so-called soft robots, using magnetic fields to remotely manipulate microparticle chains embedded in soft robotic devices.
Researchers Use Light to Remotely Control Curvature of Plastics
Researchers have developed a technique that uses light to get flat, plastic sheets to curve into 3-D structures, such as spheres, tubes or bowls.
Researchers Remotely Control Sequence in Which 2-D Sheets Fold Into 3-D Structures
Inspired by origami, researchers have found a way to remotely control the order in which a two-dimensional sheet folds itself into a three-dimensional structure.
Alum Robertson Finalist for ‘MythBusters’ Host
Alumna Tamara Robertson is one of 10 finalists to be a host on the Discovery Channel's new version of "MythBusters."
