Researchers Develop Microneedle Patch for Flu Vaccination

A National Institutes of Health-funded study led by a team at the Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University has shown that an influenza vaccine can produce robust immune responses and be administered safely with an experimental patch of dissolving microneedles.

Microneedle patches for flu vaccination prove successful in first human clinical trial

(Emory Health Sciences) A phase I clinical trial conducted by Emory University in collaboration with researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology has found that influenza vaccination using Band-Aid-like patches with dissolvable...Show More Summary

Topsy-turvy motion creates light switch effect at Uranus

More than 30 years after Voyager 2 sped past Uranus, Georgia Institute of Technology researchers are using the spacecraft's data to learn more about the icy planet. Their new study suggests that Uranus' magnetosphere, the region defined...Show More Summary

Topsy-turvy motion creates light switch effect at Uranus

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A Georgia Tech study suggests Uranus' magnetosphere, the region defined by the planet's magnetic field and the material trapped inside it, gets flipped on and off like a light switch every day as it rotates along with the planet. Show More Summary

Thwarting metastasis by breaking cancer's legs with gold rods

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Your cancer has metastasized. No one wants to ever hear that. Now researchers have developed a method to thwart cell migration and thus halt metastasis in vitro. In past tests in vivo, the treatment has wiped out tumors with no observable signs of toxicity or recurrence.

Selfies: We love how we look and we're here to show you

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Nearly 52 percent of all selfies fell into the appearance category: pictures of people showing off their make-up, clothes, lips, etc. Pics about looks were two times more popular than the other 14 categories combined.

This robot maestro can compose and perform some pretty sweet tunes

Shimon is a marimba-playing robot rockstar. The robot, developed by a team of researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology is able to compose and perform music entirely on its own.  It's part of an experiment to see if it can create music that human beings find deeply inspiring and beautiful.

Drug design strategy boosts the odds against resistance development

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A new rational drug design technique that uses a powerful computer algorithm to identify molecules that target different receptor sites on key cellular proteins could provide a new weapon in the battle against antibiotic resistance, potentially tipping the odds against the bugs.

Wildfires pollute much more than previously thought

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Wildfires are major polluters. Their plumes are three times as dense with aerosol-forming fine particles as previously believed. For the first time, researchers have flown an orchestra of modern instruments through brutishly turbulent wildfire plumes to measure their emissions in real time. Show More Summary

Researchers create 3-D printed tensegrity objects capable of dramatic shape change

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a way to use 3-D printers to create objects capable of expanding dramatically that could someday be used in applications ranging from space missions to biomedical devices.

Robot uses deep learning and big data to write and play its own music

A marimba-playing robot with four arms and eight sticks is writing and playing its own compositions in a lab at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The pieces are generated using artificial intelligence and deep learning.

Rattling DNA hustles transcribers to targets

(Georgia Institute of Technology) 'DNA is a bully.' That's how researcher Jeffrey Skolnick sums up the dominant power of DNA motion among the forces acting upon transcription factors as they move through DNA's winding thickets to their target sites. He and Edmond Chow have programmed a very large, unique simulation that tests and corroborates the hypothesis.

New computing system takes its cues from human brain

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A team of researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology and University of Notre Dame has created a new computing system that aims to tackle one of computing's hardest problems in a fraction of the time.

Who has better mental health: Public or private college students?

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Using Reddit posts as an indicator, researchers found that students at higher-ranked schools have better mental health than those at lower-ranked colleges. The well-being index is also better at universities with higher tuition. It's lower at large public schools with a majority of female students.

Cloak & Dagger is a newly-discovered Android exploit that lets hackers hide malicious activity

Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology have released a full report on a new attack vector that affects Android up to version 7.1.2. The exploit, called Cloak & Dagger, uses Android’s design and screen behaviors against users,...Show More Summary

Smoke from wildfires can have lasting climate impact

(Georgia Institute of Technology) Researchers have found that carbon particles released into the air from burning trees and other organic matter are much more likely than previously thought to travel to the upper levels of the atmosphere, where they can interfere with rays from the sun -- sometimes cooling the air and at other times warming it.

Terlaky produces new textbook on operations and optimization

Combination of features produces new Android vulnerability

(Georgia Institute of Technology) A new vulnerability affecting Android mobile devices results not from a traditional bug, but from the malicious combination of two legitimate permissions that power desirable and commonly used features in popular apps.

Network traffic provides early indication of malware infection

(Georgia Institute of Technology) By analyzing network traffic going to suspicious domains, security administrators could detect malware infections weeks or even months before they're able to capture a sample of the invading malware, a new study suggests. Show More Summary
