By Jeannie Kever:: The Center for Carbon Management in Energy, a research center at the University of Houston, is collaborating with the Southern States Energy Board to promote the rapid deployment of carbon capture, utilization and storage technologies.
By Jeannie Kever:: A medical robotic hand could allow doctors to more accurately diagnose and treat people from halfway around the world, but currently available technologies aren’t good enough to match the in-person experience. Now researchers have reported that they have designed and produced a smart electronic skin and a medical robotic hand capable of assessing vital diagnostic data by using a newly invented rubbery semiconductor.

By Jeannie Kever:: The Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston is launching the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Center on Ethics and Leadership with a series of lectures and projects focused on health disparities, voter suppression and racial healing.
By Jeannie Kever:: Researchers from the University of Houston have demonstrated that an inexpensive and non-toxic nanofluid can be used to efficiently recover even heavy oil with high viscosity from reservoirs.
By Jeannie Kever:: Despite growing scientific and commercial interest in fusion as an on-demand energy source – producing emissions-free energy through the fusion of hydrogen atoms – significant obstacles remain. A researcher from the University of Houston has joined an effort by the U.S. Department of Energy to jumpstart the technology.
By Laurie Fickman:: A University of Houston researcher is reporting that the brains of older women with Type 2 diabetes do not use as much oxygenated blood as those who don’t have the disease. The research is the first to point to changes in blood use in the brain as the primary reason for diabetes-related deficits in motor function.
