Early Detection Of Diabetic And Decubitus Ulcers

Pressure ulcers and diabetic foot ulcers are a pervasive and expensive health care challenge. They are debilitating and can significantly impair quality of life, as they are associated with loss of pain sensation and disordered circulation. The gold standard to preventing pressure ulcers include regular patient  turning/repositioning. However, there are relatively few tools for molecular-level insight into when to reposition and who to reposition.

The Vaccushield Aka Slacc (Suction-Assisted Local Aerosol Containment Chamber)

UCLA researchers in the Department of Anesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine have developed a device that can act as a protective barrier for healthcare workers from patients with contagious respiratory pathogens.

A Plant Immune Receptor For Enhanced Resistance To Herbivory

No transgenic technologies yet exist to enhance plant immune recognition of insect herbivores. Technologies to combat herbivores via transgenes rely on expression of bacterial cryotoxins but frequently break down due to evolved resistance in pests.

Highly-Permeable Polyaniline Membranes with Graphene Oxide Additive and CO2 Separations from Flue Gas

UCLA researchers in the Departments of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Civil and Environmental Engineering have developed a method to selectively tune polymer membranes (polyaniline) by incorporating graphene oxide. Additionally, the films produced by this method are capable of separating greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) from air on an industrially relevant scale.
