A team of Purdue researchers has created a new implantable drug-delivery system using nanowires that can be wirelessly controlled. The nanowires respond to an electromagnetic field generated by a separate device, which can be used to control the release of a preloaded drug.

Scientists have restarted the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, and recently began to record data from particle collisions at a record-high energy.

During this second phase of data collection at the Large Hadron Collider, an international team of scientists, including Purdue's particle physics group, will search for dark matter, delve into the details of the Higgs particle and seek a greater understanding of our universe.
