Taking Multiple Myeloma Down for the Count
When battling cancer, everything is on the table. Radiation therapy. Surgery. Chemo. Advances in nanotechnology have enabled researchers, like Associate Professor Z. Basar Bilgicer, Research Assistant Professor Tanyel Kiziltepe, and their team in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Notre Dame, to encapsulate cancer-fighting/cancer-killing drugs into nanoparticles that can deliver therapeutic drugs directly to the site of a tumor, effectively avoiding healthy tissue and minimizing adverse reactions.

What Would You Fight For? Fighting to Walk Again
James Schmiedeler, associate professor of aerospace and mechanical engineering at the University of Notre Dame, builds and conducts research with biped robots. Even though physical therapy experience is conspicuously absent from his CV, as an engineer, he sees parallels. “It’s not too hard as an engineer to look at the human body and think of it as a mechanical system, and if you include the nerves, an electromechanical system,” says Schmiedeler. “By attempting to improve the control of robots to conduct smoother, more human-like locomotion, we also hope to better understand where the deficits lie in helping human patients relearn healthy walking.”
