    Novel research could provide better analysis of EVPs’ roles in diseases, cancer

    Justus Ndukaife, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering, is leading innovative research that more effectively traps nanosized extracellular vesicles and particles to analyze their roles in cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases. Optical trapping of single extracellular vesicles and supermeres using optical anapoles. The research by Ndukaife and his collaborators was… Read More

    Engineers develop better graphene sieve that could advance clean water efforts

    Developing atomically thin graphene membranes used to separate salt from water is extraordinarily complex and the effort grows more crucial as population growth, industrialization and climate change strain freshwater resources. Vanderbilt engineers have designed a simple defect-sealing technique to correct variations in pore size in graphene membranes. Vanderbilt engineering researchers… Read More
