Professors Steve Warren, Punit Prakash, David Thompson, and Bala Natarajan are creating nighttime tools to monitor disabled children with health issues that include seizures. This work was featured in a segment on Fox News October 23.
In August 2013, our interdisciplinary research team was awarded a Major Instrumentation-Development grant from the National Science Foundation to develop an integrated instrument for small animal hyperthermia research under ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The principal investigator of the project is Dr. Stefan Bossmann (Chemistry), with the instrument design, development, and integration aspects led by Dr. Punit Prakash (ECE). Other co-PIs on the project are Dr. Leila Maurmann (Chemistry), Dr. Sanjeev Narayanan (Diagnostic Medicine/Pathobiology), and Dr. Deryl Troyer (Anatomy and Physiology). Dr. Sergio Curto (ECE) is spearheading the implementation and evaluation of MRI-compatible hyperthermia applicators.

“Through the Electrical Power Affiliates Program and the partnership between industry and academics, we are able to give our students real-world experiences beyond what we are able to teach in the classroom,” Schulz said.
The Smart Grid lab, in Rathbone Hall, includes power grid and network communication equipment to support undergraduate and graduate research projects. It is one of the first facilities to test how emerging software-defined networking technology can more efficiently manage, distribute, use and secure electrical power.
