Quantifying Muscular Response During Physical Human-Robot Interaction With a Variable Damping Controller

Robotic exoskeletons have tremendous potential for implementation in defense, industrial factories, and medical rehabilitation. However, current systems rely primarily on negative damping controllers which although safe, are very slow. In order to maximize the efficiency of exoskeletons, the damping of the system must change proportional to the acceleration of the user through a variable damping […]

DNA Repair Capacity of NRAS-Mutant Melanoma 3D Spheroids Under Oxidative Stress and DNA Repair Inhibition

B-Raf inhibitor resistance in NRAS-mutant melanoma cells results in poor prognosis and aggressive clinical behavior. Currently, there is a need for therapies that circumvent this resistance in NRAS-mutant melanoma. This research describes the use of a combination of APE1 and HSP90 inhibitors to induce cancer cell apoptosis through DNA damage. Comet Assays are being used to study the effect of […]

Streamlining Rocketry: How to Cut Costs Without Compromising Performance

The objective was to design, simulate, and launch a rocket for Spaceport America Cup 2019. This design was focused on developing new manufacturing processes that would cut costs and streamline manufacturing. Due to administrative and financial difficulties, the rocket itself was unable to be built in the given timeframe. However, the team was able to […]

Treatment of Acute Upper Gastrointestinal Clots Through Histotripsy

Acute upper gastrointestinal (GI)  bleeding results in 20,000 deaths annually in the United States. The issue with acute upper GI bleeding is locating and removing an excessive amount of blood clots obstructing the location and visualization of the wound. This problem results in invasive procedures and blood transfusions. We are proposing a device that utilizes […]
