An epipen for spinal cord injuries
When the body withstands physical trauma, the immune system rushes to the source. However, too much inflammation around a spinal injury can result in paralysis. An epipen developed by Michigan Engineering researchers deploys nanoparticles in the body that prevent immune cells from overreacting, reducing the risk of permanent injury.
Decoding the Amazon
Getting into grad school, then enduring the jungle to pursue groundbreaking research required a lot of perseverance. Elizabeth Agee, a civil and environmental engineering PhD candidate, has built sensors that will help us understand how the Amazon will respond as the Earth’s climate changes in the years ahead.
