Innovation Alerts and Spotlights:

Innovation Spotlight: Bioprinting of Hybrid Tissue Engineering Constructs
Researchers in Dr. Yunzhi Peter Yang’s lab have developed a 3D printing technology that can be used to form hybrid multi-material constructs incorporating a wide spectrum of materials (rigid and soft) and bioagents (such as cells and growth factors) with controlled spatial distribution across the hybrid structure.

Innovation Spotlight: SmartTrap
The Smart Trap is a simple yet rugged battery-operated device that autonomously detects and reports diseases carried by mosquitoes. When a specimen feeds on the Smart Trap’s sugar bait component, it leaves behind traces of saliva, which are then assayed for transmissible amounts of pathogen.

Innovation Spotlight: Electric Current and Magnetic Field Imaging System
This technology is a non-contact device that can image electric current and three dimensional magnetic field in real time.

Safer Energetic Materials
Researchers at Idaho National Laboratory have developed energetic materials that are capable of delivering powerful explosive energy, yet demonstrate unprecedented improvements for safer storage, handling, transportation and operation. INL investigators are also working to increase the safety of ignition devices to ensure energetics detonate only when required.
