The University of Massachusetts is leading the New England node for that effort. The U. Before Harry Bermudez was even born, his parents decided to pack up and leave their home, family, and friends in Colombia to make a new life in New York City. But economic and political factors drove them to the U. The design for the Roll to Roll Fabrication and Processing Facility at the University of Massachusetts Amherst has been completed and tool acquisition is presently underway.
Traditional genomic, proteomic and other screening methods currently used to characterize drug mechanisms are time-consuming and require special equipment, but now researchers led by chemist Vincent Rotello at the University of Massachusetts Amherst offer a multi-channel sensor method using gold nanoparticles that can accurately profile various anti-cancer drugs and their mechanisms in minutes. Jim Watkins discusses how nanotechnology is being applied in developing cost-effective body sensor patches to measure stress in military personnel.
Fitness bands and other wearable health monitors are all the rage among runners and other athletes who want to keep track of their workouts and measure vital statistics such as heart rate and calories burned. Now military personnel may soon have access to the same technology, in a patch that would be about the size and shape of a Band-Aid, and as flexible.
Based on research from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, the sensor would gauge stress and fatigue among armed services personnel.
