  • Interview: This work helps us understand acute periodontal pathogens

    Bacteria and their different forms, movements and influences offer a seemingly unending number of research possibilities. In a recent study, researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have found that it is not true that bacterial collaborations within microbiomes, like in the mouth, have evolved to be generous and exclusive. In an interview with Dental Tribune International, Dr. Gina Lewin explains this in more detail and discusses other areas of the study.

  • Army Projects Robots Capable of Shapeshifting

    Shapeshifters were once the basis for far-fetched science fiction drama. They are now on the outskirts of robot-based research being performed by the U.S. Army and associates, including the Georgia Institute of Technology and Northwestern University with their work published their findings in the technical journal Science Robotics....“These are very rudimentary robots whose behavior is dominated by mechanics and the laws of physics,” said Dan Goldman, a Dunn Family professor in the School of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the project’s principal investigator.

  • PARTICLES FROM 3D PRINTERS MAY BE BAD FOR YOUR HEALTH

    The particles 3D printers emit can negatively affect indoor air quality and have the potential to harm respiratory health, according to a new study. For the study, the researchers collected particles 3D printers emitted and conducted several tests to gauge their impact on respiratory cell cultures. “All of these tests, which were done at high doses, showed that there is a toxic response to the particles from various types of filaments used by these 3D printers,” says Rodney Weber, a professor in School of Earth & Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology. The work was also covered at airqualitynews.com.
