Major investment in multi-user equipment significantly improves Purdue’s research infrastructure

June 8, 2017

The Office of the Executive Vice President for Research and Partnerships (EVPRP) is pleased to announce eight awards to acquire major multi-user scientific instruments that will invigorate and accelerate research projects across the West Lafayette campus. These projects were made possible by support from the Office of the President and approved for funding in the 2017 spring semester. The investment was enabled by the record research expenditures in fiscal year 2016 of over $622 million, and recognizes and further supports faculty successes in research as well as their efforts to compete for sponsored research awards.

Brain-imaging system uses ‘multi-pupil’ prism arrays

May 8, 2017

A specialized type of adaptive-optics technology that has been demonstrated by taking high-resolution time-lapse images of functioning brain cells might be used to better understand how the brain works. The system is capable of revealing changing details of biological processes in cells over a larger field of view than otherwise possible, allowing “high throughput” essential for the study of brain activity.

Study researches ‘gorilla arm’ fatigue in mid-air computer usage

May 8, 2017

Researchers at Purdue University’s C Design Lab are studying arm and muscle fatigue connected to advancements in the use of hand gestures for mid-air computer interaction. Computer interaction improvements have included the expanding use of natural motions and gestures to control floating graphical user interfaces. As a result, fatigue from prolonged use of the motions and gestures has become an issue.
