A team of Yale students has developed an electronic method to store a child’s vaccination records using wearable computer chip technology. The project was designed for use in rural Indian communities without Internet access.
Yale Professor Bonnie Fleming was appointed Deputy Chief Research Officer at Fermilab and will oversee projects about the newly discovered neutrino. This research could change our understanding of how the universe came to be.
Ongoing research led by Yale Wright Laboratory Director Karsten Heeger seeks to prove or disprove the existence of a fourth form of neutrino–the sterile neutrino. The results would require physicists to rethink the Standard Model of Particle Physics and its assumptions.
