How Math Could Make Bones Stronger
Models help UD researchers calculate best dosage for osteoporosis treatment

Mar. 29, 2017 - They may seem rigid and set in their ways, but your bones are actually under constant construction and deconstruction.

Better battery membranes
UD researchers develop safer electrolytes and use novel technique to assess them

Apr. 2, 2015 - Most of us have seen dramatic photographs of laptops and even cars that have burst into flames due to failures in lithium-ion batteries. On a much larger scale, battery fires grounded Boeing's 787 Dreamliner jets for several months in 2013 while the company implemented new features to reduce the risk of overheating and combustion.

Platelets on demand
Research paves path to accelerating, enhancing platelet production

Sep. 25, 2014 - Platelets are an expensive biomedical commodity. These microscopic cells that come to the rescue when our blood vessels need to be repaired cannot be frozen and are stable for only three to five days at room temperature.
