Tuning of photo-absorption in semiconductors, photoconductors, and other photo conversion systems using magnetic fields
Hayes, Sophia ; Mui, Stacy ; Ramaswamy, Kannan

— Background: The idea of creating clean, sustainable power in high amounts from renewable energy sources is an interest among many across the globe. One of the many ways of creating renewable energy is applying the photovoltaic effect, the conversion of solar to electrical energy, by using semiconduc…

Urinary Biomarker of Uropathogen Colonization
Henderson, Jeffrey P. ; Hung, Chia ; Parker, Kaveri

— Urinary tract infection (UTI) caused by uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) is one of the most common infectious diseases in women. The morbidity and economic impact are enormous, with over $2.5 billion spent annually on treatment. The high rates of recurrence, and the large numbers of women that …

Liquid biopsy assay for personalized prostate cancer treatment
Chaudhuri, Aadel ; Maher, Christopher ; Pachynski, Russell

— Technology Description A team of researchers at Washington University has developed “EnhanceAR-Seq”, a circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) assay that predicts which patients are at high risk for developing resistance to androgen receptor (AR)-directed treatment for metastatic prostate cancer…

Target and small molecule drugs to selectively neutralize bacteria in urinary tract infections
Henderson, Jeffrey P.

— Technology Description Researchers in Prof. Jeffrey Henderson’s laboratory have discovered a drug target and a class of small molecule candidates that could be used to selectively prevent pathogenic enterobacteria from causing diseases such as urinary tract infections (UTIs). Currently, UTI…

MRI-based virtual histopathology for non-invasive diagnosis of prostate cancer, glioblastoma and other conditions
Song, Sheng-Kwei "Victor" ; Ye, Zezhong

— Researchers in Prof. Sheng-Kwei (Victor) Song’s laboratory have developed diffusion histology imaging (“DHI”), a tool to provide a non-invasive diagnosis for accurately grading tumors and guiding treatment decisions. This “virtual histopathology” technology classifies mic…

SIMPEL: electrode device to safely and precisely stimulate sympathetic nerves to treat asthma, hypertension and other conditions
Cloonan, Paige ; Kamath, Ashwin ; Leuthardt, Eric ; MacEwan, Matthew ; Moore, Amy ; Moran, Daniel ; Qin, Yidan (Ida) ; Ray, Wilson ; Zhang, Christopher

— Technology Description A team of researchers at Washington University have developed “SIMPEL”, a small, implanted electrode device designed to manage a variety of conditions (such as asthma, hypertension or neuropathy) by delivering current from a defined, fixed position near specific …
