    Microdevice for Rapid Blood Typing without Reagents and Hematocrit Determination – STTR: Phase II

    Michigan Tech Associate Professor Laura Brown (co-PI) and Robert Minerick (PI) of Microdevice Engineering, Inc. were granted a new award funded by the National Science Foundation regarding the broader impact/commercial potential of development of a portable, low cost blood typing and anemia screening device for use in blood donation centers, hospitals, humanitarian efforts and the…


    Power Grids and People

    Today’s infrastructure is connected in ways not always known until problems like extreme weather, diseases, major accidents, terror, or cyber threats arise. Say fuel delivery will be delayed. What can be done? Sixteen critical infrastructure sectors—including water, gas, energy, communications, and transportation—are linked and interdependent. The National Science Foundation is supporting new fundamental research to…


    Tiny Microgrids, Fiercely Important

    A microgrid is a standalone power grid requiring generation capabilities (often generators, batteries, or renewable resources) plus control methods to maintain power flow. Electronics, appliances, and heating or cooling are all responsible for consuming that power. In this project, Laura Brown and other Michigan Tech researchers are investigating a control system for such microgrids that…


    Transfer Learning in Data Centers

    Faster apps. More memory. Laura Brown and Zhenlin Wang bring efficiency to Big Data. What memory resources will be available if applications A, B, and C all run together? Big companies like Amazon and Google have even bigger data centers. Think 30 data centers each with 50,000 to 80,000 servers. And the underlying computer processors…
