BloodTestingDevice_Design_Render1.jpg A Robot May One Day Draw Your Blood
Rutgers researchers have created an automated blood drawing and testing device that provides rapid results, allowing health care practitioners to spend more time treating patients. "This device represents the holy grail in blood testing technology," says Martin L. Yarmush, biomedical engineering professor and author of the study. Read more here>>

GoldNano1PR_WaterInGrass_07022018.jpg Gold Nanoparticles Could Improve Solar Energy Storage
Using star-shaped gold nanoparticles, coated with a semiconductor, Rutgers researchers are opening the door to improved storage of solar energy and other advances that could boost renewable energy use and combat climate change. "Instead of using ultraviolet light, which is the standard practice, we leveraged the energy of visible and infrared light to excite electrons in gold nanoparticles," said materials science and engineering professor Laura Fabris. Read more here>>

WiFiSecuritytinfoilbox_clothes_setup2 (3).jpg Common WiFi Can Detect Weapons, Bombs, and Chemicals in Bags
Researchers in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) developed a suspicious object detection system that is easy to set up, reduces security screening costs, and avoids invading privacy. WiFi signals will do away with traditional screening methods, which typically require high staffing levels and costly specialized equipment.

"This could have a great impact in protecting the public from dangerous objects," said Yingying Chen, ECE professor and co-author of the study. Read more here>>


SmartWristbandFigure2.jpg Smart Wristband with Wireless Link to Smartphones Could Monitor Health, Environmental Exposures
Rutgers engineers have developed a health-monitoring, wearable wristband device that includes a flexible circuit board and a biosensor with a channel thinner than the diameter of a human hair with gold electrodes embedded inside. It has a circuit to process electrical signals, a micro-controller for digitizing data, and a Bluetooth module to transmit data wirelessly allowing health professionals to get rapid test results from patients without the need for expensive, bulky lab-based equipment.

RutgersCAIT-robot_0235_rev-S_0.jpg CAIT to Lead USDOT University Transportation Center
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy congratulated Rutgers' Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT) on its selection to lead the U.S. Department of Transportation's Region 2 University Transportation Center, a consortium of universities from New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. "This latest award builds upon CAIT's strong reputation for cutting-edge breakthroughs and advancements that address New Jersey's transportation system," said Murphy. Read more here>>

James Harrington_0_1.jpg Remembering Professor Jim Harrington
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Jim Harrington, distinguished professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. Jim's research achievements in the field of fiber optics are a pride point for the school, most notably through his significant contributions advancing fiber optics use in surgical and industrial applications.  Read more here>>
A memorial service is planned at 2:00 pm on September 30 at the Kirkpatrick Chapel at Rutgers.

Hagerty.JPG Alumni Q&A: Doreen Cook Hagerty BS'57
"I have nothing but respect for what Rutgers has done - both for me and for other students and graduates."

Doreen Cook Hagerty earned her B.S. degree in industrial engineering from Rutgers in 1957, one of the school's first women graduates. However, higher education wasn't a path Doreen envisioned for herself growing up in Newark, New Jersey - until her high school career counselor told her she thought it was ridiculous that she had no plans to attend college.
