Researchers at Penn State have developed a model to help visualize the interconnectedness of businesses and industries over geographic space, which potentially can show supply-chain vulnerabilities to future shocks, such as pandemics or climate-change impacts.
Two-dimensional materials can be used to create smaller, high-performance transistors traditionally made of silicon.
Researchers use membranes that remove salt from water to help 'split' sea water into fuel
Researchers at Penn State College of Medicine now better understand the role of a protein, interleukin-21 (IL-21), in the immune system response to infections in the nervous system
A new, $3 million award will fund the development of sipIT, a technology-based intervention to encourage people to drink more fluids.
In response to the ongoing pandemic, the Manufacturing and Sterilization for COVID-19 (MASC) Initiative was launched at Penn State in March. With more than 350 researchers contributing, the initiative is focused on designing and delivering rapidly scalable solutions and generating tangible impact, particularly within the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Residents of Pennsylvania can monitor the spread of COVID-19 across the commonwealth with an online dashboard created by researchers at Penn State. The dashboard, which has been available since March 12, provides a map of the state with the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases represented by county
Erie companies have shipped more than 50,000 locally produced medical face shields to hospitals, health-care workers and first responders in three states. The shields, which were designed in part by Jason Williams, an assistant teaching professor of engineering at Penn State Behrend, are essential protective gear for medical personnel treating patients who have the COVID-19 virus.
Penn State has begun enrolling participants in an international clinical trial evaluating an investigational antiviral drug, remdesivir, for treatment of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Researchers across Penn State are shifting their research programs to address the COVID-19 crisis, thanks to funding from a seed grant initiative led by the Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences.
