Wearable biosensors may pave the way for personalized health and wellness


Penn State engineers are using computational power and data sciences to work on stretchable, flexible and wearable devices that could lead to innovations in the health and wellness fields.

Early career engineering faculty member selected to attend Lindau conference


Huanyu (Larry) Cheng, assistant professor of engineering science and mechanics in Penn State's College of Engineering, has been selected to participate in the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting from June 28 to July 3 in Lindau, Germany.

Machine sucks up tiny tissue spheroids and prints them precisely


A new method of bioprinting uses aspiration of tiny biologics such as spheroids, cells and tissue strands, to precisely place them in 3D patterns either on scaffolding or without to create artificial tissues with natural properties, according to Penn State researchers.

Professor to lead Center for Gas Turbine Research, Education, and Outreach


Jacqueline O'Connor, associate professor of mechanical engineering at Penn State, will lead the newly created Center for Gas Turbine Research, Education, and Outreach.

Engineering science and mechanics M.D./Ph.D. student's work featured on journal cover


Work by Scott Tucker, a third-year medical student in Penn State College of Medicine’s M.D./Ph.D. Medical Scientist Training Program, was featured on the cover of the November 2019 Journal of Orthopaedic Research.

$2.8M grant to fund bioprinting for reconstruction of face, mouth, skull tissues


Penn State researchers are investigating methods to 3D bioprint and grow the appropriate tissues for craniomaxillofacial reconstruction.

College of Engineering awards five Multidisciplinary Research Seed Grants


The Penn State College of Engineering awarded the 2020 Multidisciplinary Research Seed Grants to five faculty research teams across the College of Engineering, the College of Medicine and the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences.

Engineering science and mechanics M.D./Ph.D. student named to "20 in their 20s" list


Harrisburg Young Professionals and local news publication TheBurg named a student in Penn State College of Medicine's M.D./Ph.D. Medical Scientist Training Program as part of their "20 in their 20s" list for 2019.

Transparency discovered in crystals with ultrahigh piezoelectricity


Use of an AC rather than a DC electric field can improve the piezoelectric response of a crystal. Now, an international team of researchers say that cycles of AC fields also make the internal crystal domains in some materials bigger and the crystal transparent.

A wearable gas sensor for health and environmental monitoring


A highly sensitive, wearable gas sensor for environmental and human health monitoring may soon become commercially available, according to researchers at Penn State and Northeastern University.

Penn State nominates four for Goldwater Scholarship


The Penn State University Fellowships Office announced the names of the four undergraduate students that are the University's nominees to the 2020 Goldwater Scholarship, an award for U.S. undergraduates interested in pursuing careers in research.

A new method to study lithium dendrites could lead to better, safer batteries


Lithium ion batteries often grow needle-like structures between electrodes that can short out the batteries and sometimes cause fires. Now, an international team of researchers has found a way to grow and observe these structures to understand ways to stop or prevent their appearance.
