Over the last half-century, students in the ME310 course have produced hundreds of prototypes for cameras, makeup, cars and much more. Combined with international teams, they design and develop new products while learning from reality.
By combining computer simulations with laboratory experiments, an international research team revealed something new about a molecular pathway that enables roughly half of all medications to achieve their desired effects – but is also responsible for many side effects.
Cancer research that once involved years of painstaking work can now happen in months with a novel technique for systematically studying cancer-related genes. The results reveal how combinations of mutations influence tumor growth.
