CU Boulder researchers Jianliang Xiao and Wei Zhang have developed self-healing, fully-recyclable electronic skin that is completely recyclable. They are now investigating applications surrounding the material's ability to shapeshift.
From developing a system to reduce food waste to constructing a way to prevent tool theft at public bike repair stations, students in the Design for America organization at CU Boulder are working on a wide range of projects with community partners.
The CU Board of Regents approved new degrees in biomedical engineering. Through these degrees, students will have the chance to pursue classes across the university in engineering, biology and mathematics.
Six student teams are participating in CU Boulder’s Catalyze CU startup accelerator. They have access to skill-building workshops and mentoring with local business leaders and can earn up to $5,000 in equity-free funding.
The NSF GRFP supports outstanding graduate students in STEM disciplines pursuing research-based graduate degrees. Six CU mechanical engineering students received awards in 2019 along with one honorable mention.
Read about how wildfires sparked water quality research, how poor air quality affects low-income households, how a Colorado-born technology detected methane gas leaks and how CU Boulder outreach projects taught K–12 students across Colorado about air quality.
Researchers in Mark Rentschler's lab designed a robot to navigate the unpredictable terrain of the intestine. The group hopes the robot will change how people across the United States get colonoscopies, making these common procedures easier for patients and more efficient for doctors.
Meet PhD student Greg Formosa, the design and controls mastermind behind the Endoculus, a robotic capsule endoscope capable of performing autonomous colonoscopies that was engineered in Associate Professor Mark Rentschler’s lab.
Meet Micah Prendergast (PhDMechEngr'19), expert in navigation and localization for the Endoculus, a robotic capsule endoscope developed in Mark Rentschler’s lab. For a robot making its way through the colon, navigation is no easy task.
