Dr. James LeBeau, assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at North Carolina State University and associate director of the Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF), has been awarded a $2M Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM).
Biomedical spinout company raises $5.8 million for ‘smart’ insulin devices
A Research Triangle Park startup founded by Dr. Zhen Gu, associate professor in the UNC/NC State Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering, has received a $5.8 million cash infusion to continue translation efforts of ‘smart’ insulin devices.
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.
Cancer immunotherapy uses melanin against melanoma
Researchers have developed a melanin-enhanced cancer immunotherapy technique that can also serve as a vaccine, based on early experiments done in a mouse model.
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.

Researchers receive grant to study GenX exposure in New Hanover County residents
NC State researchers will lead study on GenX exposure in New Hanover County residents
Reyhanoglu will lead Joint UNC Asheville-NC State Engineering Programs in Asheville
Dr. Mahmut Reyhanoglu has been named the new director of the joint UNC Asheville-NC State Engineering Programs. These include the 2+2 program with two years on each campus, and the mechatronics engineering program where students study for all four years on UNC Asheville’s campus.
Voltage-driven liquid metal fractals
Researchers from North Carolina State University have found that gallium indium (EGaIn), a liquid metal with one of the highest surface tensions, can be induced to spread and form patterns called fractals with the application of low voltage. The work has implications for controlling the shape of liquid metals.
Technique offers advance in testing micro-scale compressive strength of cement
Researchers have, for the first time, used a “micropillar compression” technique to characterize the micro-scale strength of cement, allowing for the development of cement with desirable strength properties for civil engineering applications.
