The CEID was bustling with activity this summer, as teams of engineering students developed innovative devices to combat real-world problems. One such invention was Acantha, a one-handed catheter delivery system developed by Yale engineering students Brandon Hudik and Andres Ornelas Vargas. This duo is continuing their work beyond their eight-week fellowship at the CEID and plan to scale up the development of their product.
Quantum technologies could unlock entirely new ways to view the world — but only if scientists can create stable methods of manipulating qubits. Researchers from the Yale Quantum Institute have integrated classical and quantum technologies to create scalable quantum information chips, heralding a paradigm shift for the field.
We enjoy seeing robots in many places, from film to the classroom, but you likely would rather not see a robot at your place of employment, working in your stead. With rising concern that robots may come to replace human workers, it is time to address this problem from all angles.
Respiratory insufficiency is a major cause of more than half of all infant deaths. This rate of mortality could be reduced if more reliable treatments were readily available in developing countries. PremieBreathe, a Yale startup, has developed a low-cost respiratory device to help solve this problem.
Sticky materials may already hold our lives together, but a new breakthrough in our understanding of how things stick together could transform our understanding of some biological processes like organ growth and cancer metastasis.
Groundbreaking Navigation Technology for Visually Impaired: Yale engineer’s collaboration with theater company yields innovative device
Despite its small size and simple appearance, Animotus is simultaneously a feat of engineering, a work of art, and a potentially transformative community service project. Adam Spiers, a postdoctoral researcher in Yale University’s department of mechanical engineering, has developed a
Scientists learn lessons from nature’s greenery, modeling the next generation of solar technology on plant cells.
A team of Yale researchers has demonstrated how a seemingly random insect mating swarm responds to external stimulus through intelligent group fluctuations.
A study led by André Taylor, associate professor of chemical and environmental engineering at Yale, presents a new method of creating transparent lithium-ion batteries. The development brings science closer than ever before to the realization of invisible electronics.
Science fiction novels, TV shows, and movies have time and time again toyed with the cloning of ancient animals. But just how close are we to bringing those species, and our childhood fantasies, back to life?
