Tiny bubbles could reveal immune cell secrets and improve treatments


Macrophages are little cells vital to the immune system and could possibly inform cell-based therapies for a variety of medical conditions. However, realizing the full potential of macrophage therapies relies on being able to see what these cellular allies are doing inside our bodies, and a team of Penn State researchers may have developed a way to watch them do their thing.

Penn State to lead civilian STEM workforce development program for US Navy


The Penn State College of Engineering and Applied Research Laboratory are partnering to launch a new workforce development program to prepare students for jobs as civilian engineers and scientists for the U.S. Navy. Funded with a five-year, $15.5 million grant from the Office of Naval Research, the Penn State Intern PipelinE LInks to Navy Engineering program — known as PIPELINE — aims to train and connect students to technical civilian careers in the Navy.
