Novel Microsensor Design to Improve Data Collection From Hard-To-Monitor Environments
Wireless microsensors have enabled new ways to monitor our environment by allowing users to measure spaces previously off limits to research, such as toxic areas, vehicle components, or remote areas in the human body. Researchers, however, have been stymied by limited improvements in the quality of data and sensitivity of these devices stemming fro...

Co-polymer Stabilizers for Pressured Metered Dose Inhalers (pMDIs)
A series of novel co polymer surfactants with the general structure LAmEOnLAm were developed along with a Colloidal Probe Microscopy (CPM) method to optimize the surfactant composition using adhesion forces to improve stabilization of drug dispersions. This expands the range of biomolecules and micronized drug particles that can be formulated with ...
