Transforming Smart Technologies - NSF funding helps push the limits of today’s smart devices

Today’s smartphone is often referred to as the “swiss army knife” of modern life. For any purpose, there is an application, or “app” as they are universally known. More often than not, there is not just one, but multiple apps at our fingertips to meet our daily needs, from social, entertainment, and environmental to health and transportation. However, there are boundaries to this immense convenience and flexibility – it is limited to software only. For example, there is no app to measure the air pollutant levels in the home. The reason is simple: as “smart” as today’s commodity phones are, they are not equipped with special sensors that can measure these pollutants. Such limitations in hardware - both sensors and radios - have been a major roadblock to a true “swiss army knife” device whose hardware can be reconfigured to suit purposes beyond commodity smartphones.

Obesity is one of the pressing issues of the 21st century. Lifestyle modifications in terms of diet and exercise are the primary treatment for obesity. However, patients with disability or morbid obesity would not be able to endure strenuous exercise. Vihita Patel, a fifth year PhD student in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, is the first author on a publication in Obesity that used an adult murine model of high fat diet induced obesity. In this study, Vihita demonstrates that low intensity mechanical stimulation, as a surrogate to exercise, can also be an efficacious treatment for obesity and related disorders such as type 2 diabetes.

Groundbreaking Collaboration with BNL and the Air Force Research Lab Results in Gold Nanoparticles

A leading researcher in the College of Engineering and Applied Science teamed with scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) and the Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) to produce gold nanoparticles. Using a new method called, Helium Nanodroplet Deposition (HND), Alexander Orlov and his team of collaborators created gold nanoparticles of unprecedented purity and stability. This discovery not only highlights the possibilities of creating materials that solve energy and environmental problems, but also showcases SBU’s collaborative success with BNL and AFRL.

Danny Bluestein Devices New Method to Model Protein Interactions May Help Accelerate Drug Development

Stony Brook-led international research team creates ultra-fast approach detailed in PNAS

Stony Brook, NY – July 11, 2016 – Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) are the basis of cellular functions, and when these processes are compromised diseases such as cancer emerge. For years scientists have tried with mixed success to map out PPIs to understand cellular processes. Now a team of international scientists led by Stony Brook University researchers have created an ultra-fast way to model protein interactions.

  Demanding More From Technology: Technology for Society Project Seeks Answers  

Professor Todd Pittinsky of the Department of Technology and Society in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Stony Brook University (SBU) has launched the Technology for Society project. The goal of this multidisciplinary effort is to demand more from the explosion of new technology.  

“We need to ask not what technology can do,” says Pittinsky, “but what it can do for us.” The conferences and books that make up the project will marshal the breadth, depth, and rigor of academic scholarship to make sure that technology will not just amaze and revolutionize society, but will also serve our most worthy desires for safety, health, well-being, companionship, community, peace, and justice.

The project was specifically named Technology for Society by Pittinsky  because technology should be for society, as opposed to existing within society.
