Professor Mario Garcia-Sanz Publishes New Book

Robust Control Engineering: practical QFT solutions. CRC Press, Taylor and Francis, USA. ISBN: 978-1-138-03207-1

Description: This book is indispensable for engineers and researchers designing reliable control solutions for industrial, energy, environmental, biomedical, chemical, electrical, mechanical and aerospace applications. It covers the fundamentals of the QFT robust control as well as practical control solutions for unstable, time-delay, non-minimum phase or distributed parameter systems, plants with large model uncertainty, with high-performance specifications, nonlinear components, multi-input multi-output characteristics or asymmetric topologies.

Congratulations to Michael Suster, PhD, along with fellow APT Center Investigators Pedram Mohseni, PhD, and Evi Stavrou, MD, as well as Anirban Sen Gupta, PhD, who have received funding from the American Heart Association to develop a dielectric microsensor - called ClotChip – with the goal to provide a comprehensive assessment of a patient's blood coagulation status at the point-of-care. This 2-year project started this month and has received a total award of $153,248. The ClotChip was licensed last year by XaTek and this project was supported with seed funding by the APT Center.

Researcher developing low-cost, portable method to detect tainted medicines

CLEVELAND—Fake or low-quality medicines and food supplements are an ongoing global problem in underdeveloped nations, although technology-savvy places, such as the United States, are also not immune.

A researcher at Case Western Reserve University is developing a low-cost, portable prototype designed to detect tainted medicines and food supplements that otherwise can make their way to consumers. The technology can authenticate good medicines and supplements.
