Bioengineering student Aline Yonezawa
Jul 31, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Berkeley researchers help grow future scientists in the lab
Promising science undergraduate in fields from bioengineering to synthetic chemistry are returning to their home schools after a summer-long exploration of frontline research and big science at UC Berkeley.
NASA satellite
Jul 24, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Technology could bring high-end solar to the masses
Berkeley engineers have developed an inexpensive way to grow thin films of a prized material in the semiconductor and photovoltaic industries, an achievement that could soon put high-end solar cells within reach of consumer pocketbooks.
E-skin
Jul 21, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Paper-thin e-skin responds to touch by lighting up
UC Berkeley engineers have created a new e-skin that responds to touch by instantly lighting up. The more intense the pressure, the brighter the light it emits. The material, described in Nature Materials, is the first sensor network on flexible plastic that is user-interactive.
Lydia Sohn
Jun 11, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Lydia Sohn among Bakar Fellows pursuing path to marketplace
Mechanical engineer Lydia Sohn is one of five UC Berkeley scientists awarded Bakar Fellowships to help take their lab-bench discoveries into the marketplace. Sohn, an associate professor and member of the Berkeley Stem Cell Center, will look for ways to screen for metastatic cancer cells that have been shed from breast tumors and are circulating in the blood threatening to establish satellite tumors.
Diver recovering Roman concrete
Jun 05, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter To improve today’s concrete, do as the Romans did
In a quest to make concrete more durable and sustainable, a UC Berkeley-led team of geologists and engineers has found inspiration in the ancient Romans, whose massive concrete structures have withstood the elements for more than 2,000 years.
Light-controlled gel
May 28, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Berkeley engineers create new light-controlled gel
Inspired by the way plants grow toward light sources, a phenomenon known as phototropism, UC Berkeley bioengineers have created a hydrogel that could be manipulated by light.
Big Ideas presentation
May 15, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Students' 'Big Ideas' tackle societal problems
UC Berkeley’s annual Big Ideas contest honored this year’s crop of outstanding social projects targeting money matters, water technology and cultural taboos during a special awards celebration at the Blum Center for Developing Economies.
Chris Ategeka
May 14, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Ugandan AIDS orphan discovers power of the pedal
The humble bicycle propelled AIDS orphan Chris Ategeka from rural East Africa to UC Berkeley, driving him to success as a mechanical engineer, inventor and social entrepreneur. Now he is empowering his former countrymen, one bicycle at a time, to repay the random acts of kindness that allowed him to live his dream.
Wireless brain diagnostics
May 14, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Wireless signals could transform brain trauma diagnostics
New technology developed by engineers at UC Berkeley is using wireless signals to provide real-time, non-invasive diagnoses of brain swelling or bleeding. The device could potentially become a cost-effective tool for medical diagnostics and to triage injuries in remote areas.
Ritankar Das
May 09, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter University Medal goes to wunderkind Ritankar Das
Ritankar Das, a double major in bioengineering and chemical biology, caps off his whirlwind tenure at UC Berkeley this month by being named the year’s top graduating senior. At 18, Das is the youngest University Medalist in at least a century.
Malik, Yu and Hellman
Apr 24, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Three engineering professors among Berkeley's new AAAS members
Jitendra Malik and Bin Yu, both professors of electrical engineering and computer sciences, and Frances Hellman, of physics and materials science & engineering, are among 10 UC Berkeley faculty members named Wednesday as new members of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Deepwater Horizon blowout
Apr 18, 2013 UC Berkeley NewsCenter Disaster expert cites “failure to learn” for Deepwater Horizon blowout
Bob Bea, professor of civil engineering and an internationally recognized veteran of disaster investigations, shared his assessment of the Deepwater Horizon blowout at an April 17 talk on campus. He called the event a “system disaster” that exemplified a “failure to learn” from past mistakes.
