    Kathryn Daltorio's Crab Lab tests underwater robot in Veale Center swimming pool

    Earlier this year, the Veale Center swimming pool was a testing site for Kathryn ‘Kati’ Daltorio’s Crab Lab thanks to a collaboration with the Motley Scuba Diving Club. Supported by the Department of Defense, researchers in the Crab Lab, including PhD students Mingyu Pan and Yifeng Gong, are creating a waterproof crab robot that is capable of searching for and removing underwater unexploded ordnance (UXO) in shallow water.

    Research team led by Case Western Reserve awarded $2.75M from Department of Defense to advance clot-stabilizing nanotechnology

    The U.S. Department of Defense has awarded a team of researchers led by Case Western Reserve University a four-year, $2.75 million grant to explore new technology to generate and stabilize a protein called fibrin that is essential to maintain protective blood clots in an injured body. Anirban Sen Gupta, the Wallace R. Persons Endowed Professor of Engineering and professor of biomedical engineering, is leading the project with two researchers from other institutions.

    Case Western Reserve University awarded federal contract to develop and commercialize ‘live’ replacement joints

    Issued in two phases—$20.4 million in the first and, if certain milestones are met, $27.3 million in the second—this work, which is backed by an award from the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H), has the potential to change lives. 500 million people globally suffer from the degenerative joint disease osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis. The usual treatments target pain relief, often with prescription opioids or prosthetic surgery. Now, a research team led by the Case School of Engineering will begin work on engineering, growing and commercializing “live” replacement joints to treat this painfully debilitating disease.
