This year, about 240,000 people in the U.S. will discover they have lung cancer. Some 200,000 of them will be diagnosed with non-small-cell lung cancer, which is the second leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease.  Georgia Tech researcher Ahmet Coskun is working to improve the odds for these patients in two recently published studies…

Imaging neuro activities for long durations, high speeds, and large regions of the brain simultaneously is critical to understand the underlying computations in the brain – in normal functions as well as in developmental and neurodegenerative diseases, according to Georgia Tech researchers. Model organisms in neuroscience such as the round worm C…

For individuals suffering from hearing loss, good news may be on the horizon thanks to cutting-edge optical technology. The French National Research Agency (ANR) has awarded Abdallah Ougazzaden, professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech and president of Georgia Tech-Lorraine, a €560,000 ($560,700) grant to develop technology…

Cell phones are becoming more accessible, but gaps remain — including fewer features for people with cognitive disabilities, emerging issues such as vehicle connectivity, and surprising roadblocks such as poor battery life, according to the latest biennial analysis of cell phone accessibility by Georgia Tech’s Center for Advanced Communications…

The School of Architecture in the College of Design at Georgia Tech traces its roots to 1908 when the discipline was established as an area of study. Since then, the school has expanded to offer specializations in architecture, culture, and behavior, design technology, history, theory, and criticism, and urbanism. This installment of the Faces of…

Europa is more than just one of Jupiter’s many moons – it’s also one of most promising places in the solar system to look for extraterrestrial life. Under 10 kilometers of ice is a liquid water ocean that could sustain life. But with surface temperatures at -180 Celsius and with extreme levels of radiation, it’s also one of the most inhospitable…

At the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI), we advance technology and provide innovative solutions. To achieve such a broad mission, GTRI needs people with varying skill sets and abilities to support the needs of our sponsors and our organization. That is how Alex Montañez, an artist and graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD…

Ever stare at those last few pieces of breakfast cereal and watch them seemingly clump together or cling to the side of the bowl? Scientists have dubbed it the “Cheerios effect,” the combination of forces causing those clumps. Researchers at Georgia Tech have discovered those same forces draw small numbers of ants…

When self-propelling objects interact with each other, interesting phenomena can occur. Birds align with each other when they flock together. People at a concert spontaneously create vortices when they nudge and bump into each other. Fire ants work together to create rafts that float on the water’s surface.  While many of these interactions…

One lesson learned from the Covid-19 pandemic is that human behavior is a difficult variable to consider when predicting and preventing disease outbreaks. This challenge is magnified even more considering how different scientific fields conduct, interpret, and present research. To overcome these challenges, Georgia Tech researchers form the core…
