An ‘electroceutical’ antimicrobial smart device that can detect and destroy bacteria in wounds via integration into bandages and surfaces. – Durham University
A non-destructive method to prepare semiconducting, silylated, single-walled carbon nanotubes for integrated nanoscale systems. – Stony Brook University
New catalyst compositions that enable the efficient synthesis of methanol from waste gases and the selective generation of hydrogen from methanol. – Oxford University Innovation
The world’s first nanorobot that can be controlled by UV and visible light, with potential applications in a range of biomedical settings. – The University of Hong Kong
Novel, orally available small molecules with a proven affinity for controllable interleukin-17 inhibition as potential alternatives to monoclonal antibodies. – University of Greenwich
A graphene deposition technique that can be used to fabricate graphene films on a range of substrates without additives, for the development of graphene-based flexible electronics. – University of Exeter
Multifunctional film coatings, based upon tungstate nanodot technology, that prevent fogging, self-clean, block UV radiation and heat IR sources, while maintaining transparency to visible light. – Monash University
Unfortunately, this technology is no longer available for collaboration, but there is a similar innovation on IN-PART from researchers at the University of California, Irvine: Infrared Heat Reflective Coating.
A portable and fully-automated biohazard analyzer that enables rapid, ultrasensitive, and simultaneous detection of a wide panel of pathogens. – University of Utah
An age-specific therapeutic designed to block calcium-permeable receptor activity linked to epilepsy development in newborn seizure patients. – University of Pennsylvania
A nanoparticle formulation that is designed to address the chronic barrier deficit associated with atopic and other forms of dermatitis. – University of Oklahoma
