Fighting for Better Cancer Detection
A mammogram’s ability to detect tumors at early stages has made breast cancer one of the most treatable forms of cancer. Still there are almost 50,000 missed diagnoses every year. Engineering professor Ryan K. Roeder has devised a way in which gold nanoparticles can be injected into the breast and attach to indicators of cancer, so they can be clearly seen.

Why Not Recycled Concrete?
From paper towels to cups to plastic bottles, products made from recycled materials permeate our lives. One notable exception is building materials. Why can’t we recycle concrete from our deteriorating infrastructure for use as material in new buildings and bridges? It’s a question that a team of researchers at the University of Notre Dame is examining.
