Purdue University researchers may have figured out a way to call off a cancer cell assassin that sometimes goes rogue and assign it a larger tumor-specific "hit list." Philip S. Low, Purdue's Ralph C. Corley Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and director of the Purdue Center for Drug Discovery, and graduate student Yong Gu Lee led a team that designed new engineered CAR T cells that must be activated and targeted by a small molecule adaptor before they can kill cancer cells. The system has the potential to control the engineered cells to overcome existing limitations in CAR T-cell therapy. http://bit.ly/1QwLHtb http://ow.ly/i/iMEI7

Flip on a switch any time of day or night, and fossil fuel-powered electricity will give you light. But solar power is not so predictable, since you can’t get energy when the sun is down or hidden behind dark clouds.

Enter “hydricity,” a new concept that uses solar energy to generate electricity but also produces and stores hydrogen from superheated water for round-the-clock power production. It’s a potential breakthrough solution for continuous and efficient power generation, says Rakesh Agrawal, the Winthrop E. Stone Distinguished Professor in the School of Chemical Engineering and a faculty adviser with the Energy Center in Purdue's Discovery Park. http://bit.ly/1SAqOoD #EarthDay

Elizabeth Mercier, continuing lecturer in Classics, has been awarded a $12,000 grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The award will support a fellowship at the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies in Canada. Mercier will earn a specialized diploma from the institute in mediaeval manuscript studies, offered in conjunction with the American Academy in Rome. The program is offered in two summer sessions, one each in Toronto and Rome. Purdue's Classics program offers courses in Latin, Ancient Greek, and translation, and is housed in the School of Languages and Cultures. bit.ly/1WQayzJ

On Target Laboratories LLC, whose fluorescent imaging technology could help surgeons identify and remove more cancerous tissue than previously possible, has received $5.2 million in private funding as the company prepares to enter phase 3 clinical trials in ovarian cancer and phase 2 clinical trials in lung cancer. The company's technology is based on the pioneering work of Philip S. Low, the Ralph C. Corley Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Purdue University and director of the Purdue University Center for Drug Discovery. bit.ly/1Uc4KA3 http://ow.ly/i/iMGbE

A new technique might be used to diagnose neuromuscular disorders such as multiple sclerosis or impairment from concussions by detecting and measuring subtle oscillations in a person's standing posture. "The clinical application is especially promising as the assessment takes less than five minutes, requires standard balance equipment and does not require a medical doctor to perform," says Prof. Arvind Raman. http://bit.ly/1pkwKV3 http://ow.ly/i/iMEk8

Harnessing the power of plasmonic heating could bring advances in quantum computing and ultra-high resolution displays, magnetic storage technology, cancer treatment and renewable energy. But the development of advanced optical technologies using plasmonics has been hampered because components under development cause too much light to be lost and converted into heat.

Now researchers are finding that this "loss-induced plasmonic heating" could be key to development of various advanced technologies, say Profs. Vladimir M. Shalaev and Alexandra Boltasseva in the Birck Nanotechnology Center, part of Purdue's Discovery Park . http://bit.ly/1T3dDa3 #EarthDay

Story
Tagline
World-renowned faculty and more than 400 research laboratories put Purdue University among the world's leading research institutions.
Introduction
Purdue's West Lafayette campus boasts more than 400 research laboratories and 116 University-approved research centers and institutes. Overseen by the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships, our growing research enterprise focuses on the following areas:

* Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education
* Life and Health Sciences
* Sustainability: energy, environment and climate change
* Security, Defense and Space Sciences
* Cyber and Information Technology

During the 2014 fiscal year, Purdue University received $389 million in research awards, an increase of nearly $70 million (close to 22%) over 2013. Sources included private industries, the National Science Foundation, several federal government departments and state and local grants.
