New research led by mechanical engineering faculty members at Virginia Tech, Srinath Ekkad and Uri Vandsburger, should have a significant impact on the industrial gas turbine community and, in turn, the global climate.
Linsey Marr received a National Institutes of Health New Innovator Award valued at $2.28 million over five years, in support of her research on influenza transmission by bioaerosols.
The Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute European -- U.S. Workshop on the Neuroscience of Cognition, Computation, and Decisions will be held at Virginia Tech's Center for European Studies and Architecture at Riva San Vitale Oct. 16–18.
Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists have found that neurofeedback can enhance the signal-to-noise ratio in thought, enabling a sharper focus on tasks -- and a better understanding of brain-computer interfaces.
Virginia Tech and its partners in Maryland and New Jersey are working to support the Federal Aviation Administration's research and testing efforts aimed at integrating unmanned aircraft systems into the national airspace.
Virginia Tech has been named one of 10 academic institutions to receive a first-of-its-kind grant from the National Institutes of Health to help prepare graduate students and postdoctoral scholars for biomedical research careers that could take them beyond conventional academic research.
Researchers have developed a model that helps scientists and clinicians understand that complex interactions of a type of bacteria that is the leading cause of peptic ulcers. The discovery may inform changes in the ways doctors treat patients. An estimated 4 million Americans have peptic ulcers.
Researchers from Virginia Tech, Georg-August University, and the Jackson Laboratory have discovered how "check valves" in wood cells control sap flow and protect trees when they are injured.
Virginia Tech Dean of University Libraries Tyler Walters will have an integral part in shaping policy for open access to federally funded research. He and other key leaders from universities across the country will lay the groundwork for a network of digital repositories for research and scholarship hosted by universities.
David Schmale's research using drones -- also called unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVs -- to explore microbial life in the atmosphere earned him a spot on the prestigious list of international scientists, engineers, and thinkers whose innovations change the world.
Associate Professor Kathleen Alexander and her colleague used a simple survey tool to provide data that identifies starting points for preventing diarrheal disease outbreaks in a region of Africa.
Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute scientists have found the first physical evidence for a controversial theory as to how spherical carbon nanoparticles called buckyballs are formed. The insights could lead to the ability to create large numbers of a wide variety of buckyballs, which would be a boon to many fields, including medical therapeutics and diagnostics.
Lissett Bickford has developed a flexible microneedle patch that allows drugs to be delivered directly and fully through the skin.
Researchers from the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute performed what they assumed would be a routine experiment in neurodevelopment. The results, however, revealed surprising roles of an important protein and its receptors. The finding could prove useful for the development of therapies and diagnostics to combat brain disease.
Research funding from federal, state, and private sources has tripled during Charles W. Steger's service as Virginia Tech president.
The new facilities ensure the long-term success of the university's award-winning dairy science program.
Astronaut Edgar Mitchell will share his experiences working on the moon's surface as a lunar module pilot at two public events on Sept. 20.
