TROY, N.Y. — The lives of people with Type 1 diabetes could be significantly enhanced through algorithms that connect glucose monitors and insulin pumps to automatically regulate blood glucose to healthy levels, in the same fashion that cruise control in an automobile regulates speed.
TROY, N.Y. — In order to effectively address intractable challenges like cancer, researchers, drug developers, and clinicians need to be able to see how a potential therapeutic works within a living system, ideally in real time. That type of vision and insight is being made possible by engineers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
TROY, N.Y. — The uncertainty and anxiety that surround the COVID-19 pandemic have placed strains on the supply chain, as people across the globe stock up on excess food, masks, and household products.
From a variety of locations in the Capital Region, and throughout the country, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute faculty, students, and staff are pressing their knowledge and machinery to work making personal protective equipment for those on the front lines of the pandemic.
TROY, N.Y. — Hidden within countless materials are valuable properties that will enable the next generation of technologies, like quantum computing and improved solar cells.
At Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, researchers working at the intersection of materials science, chemical engineering, and physics are uncovering new and innovative ways to unlock those promising and useful abilities using light, temperature, pressure, or magnetic fields.
TROY, N.Y. — Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, affecting more than 32.5 million adults in the United States. The key to preventing or even reversing its painful and debilitating effects may be uncovered through a better understanding of the biomechanics that influence a specific molecular component that is central to the body’s joints.
