Making wearable smart devices “smarter” and more secure
Researchers in the College of Engineering have been pursuing a new authentication process for wearable devices to make them less susceptible to attack. In fact, they have developed a generic implicit wearable device user authentication mechanism that uses combinations of three types of less-informative coarse-grained minute-level biometrics: behavioral (step counts), physiological (heart rate) and hybrid (calorie burn and metabolic equivalent of task), all of which can be easily obtained from most wearables.

Many coastal homes are unprotected from hurricanes and homeowners have no intention of retrofitting, study finds
New research from the University of Notre Dame shows that many coastal homes have significant structural vulnerabilities that leave homeowners and their homes largely unprotected from storms. Additionally, the majority of coastal homeowners have little to no intention of reducing these structural vulnerabilities, even though they live in areas frequently affected by damaging hurricanes and flooding.

Researchers develop first functional targeted inhibitors of peanut allergens
In a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the University of Notre Dame have effectively prevented the binding of peanut allergens with immunoglobulin E to suppress the allergic reaction to peanuts using a first-in-class design of allergen-specific inhibitors.

Allergic to the cure: Researchers create a new and quicker way to detect platin drug allergies for cancer patients
Platins, the most widely used chemotherapeutic drugs, are displaying an alarming rise in drug hypersensitivity reactions much more severe than the watery eyes or runny noses associated with hay fever, which is also a Type 1, immediate hypersensitivity reaction. A Notre Dame-led team has developed a safer way of determining hypersensitivity in patients.

Designing next-generation optical antennas
Antennas catch radio waves from the air and convert the energy into electrical signals. They can also convert electrical signals into radio waves. Optical engineers and scientists, like Associate Professor Anthony J. Hoffman, are working toward leveraging these devices to control light instead of radio waves.
