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.
Study shows need for adaptive powered knee prosthesis to assist amputees

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
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.
Textile engineering student helps Adidas engineer the future
Textile Engineering major Kevin Harrow has a passion for creating and innovating, both of which he was able to do during the six-months he spent as an intern working in Germany at the Adidas international headquarters.
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.
New techniques boost performance of non-volatile memory systems
Researchers have developed new software and hardware designs that should limit programming errors and improve system performance in devices that use non-volatile memory (NVM) technologies.
Multidisciplinary teamwork helps bring new ASSIST technology to market
At the start of each school year, teams of students begin to form across campus at NC State University, gearing up for practicum course projects that will bring real world perspective to what they are learning in the classroom. Each […]
