(https://thetrinitychallenge.org/) What if we could detect outbreaks before they spiraled out of control to cost lives and livelihoods? A wireless sensor network, with patented sensor technologies, offers a surveillance solution that detects pathogens in air and water up to one week before cases are present in humans. This low-cost, game-changing system can be deployed in… Continue Reading →

Earlier this year, Nian Sun, a Northeastern University engineering professor, made the switch from studying gas sensors that detect lung cancer biomarkers to sensors targeting the novel coronavirus. With an NSF grant received in June, Sun and his colleagues have developed a handheld breathalyzer outfitted with electrochemical sensors made to catch viral particles from the air,… Continue Reading →
Originally named the Outstanding Translational Research Award, in 2020 the award was renamed in honor of Constantinos Mavroidis, a College of Engineering Distinguished Professor of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and Director of the Biomedical Mechatronics Laboratory. His admirable dedication, accomplishments, and contributions to research and education embody the essence of the award. Professor Mavroidis was… Continue Reading →
Northeastern, Winchester, and U Mass Medical School win the Rapid Acceleration of Diagnostics (RADx) Award by the National Institute of Health (NIH) to develop a rapid SARS-CoV-2 diagnosis system in the form of a handheld gas sensor by breathing into it.
“The award is granted in recognition of a researcher’s entire achievements to date to academics whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future.” Read Full Article
Our founder & technical advisor Nian Sun is elevated to IEEE Fellow, quote “for contributions to integrated magnetic and magnetoelectric materials and devices”.
The Sun Lab is developing a new ultra-sensitive, highly specific hand-held gas sensor system for biomarker volatile organic compounds from exhaled breath for early screening of lung cancer. Lung cancer screening by CT scan is USPSTF recommended in a high-risk population, of which the implementation in rural areas has been challenging, and false positives have… Continue Reading →

NATURE Ultra-small antennas point way to miniature brain implants Metal antennas that send and receive TV signals and radio waves could soon be replaced by tiny films up to one hundred times smaller, scientists say. Among the possible benefits are smaller smartphones and wearable technology, and miniaturized implantable devices to stimulate brain cells. Conventional antennas… Continue Reading →
