Water efficiency in rural areas is getting worse, even as it improves in urban centers
A nationwide analysis of water use over the past 30 years finds that there is a disconnect between rural and urban areas, with most urban areas becoming more water efficient and most rural areas becoming less and less efficient over time.
Pig model to help research on human knee growth, injury treatment
Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have published research on how the knees of pigs compare to human knees at various stages of maturity – a finding that will advance research by this group and others on injury treatment in young people.
Researchers use modified insulin and red blood cells to regulate blood sugar
Researchers from NC State and the UNC-Chapel Hill have developed a new technique that uses modified insulin and red blood cells to create a glucose-responsive “smart” insulin delivery system. In an animal model study, the new technique effectively reduced blood sugar levels for 48 hours in a strain of mice that had Type 1 diabetes.
‘Persistent photoconductivity’ offers new tool for bioelectronics
Researchers at NC State have developed a new approach for manipulating the behavior of cells on semiconductor materials, using light to alter the conductivity of the material itself.
