Marge Skubic, a professor in the College of Engineering and director of the Center for Eldercare and Rehabilitation Technology, has developed sensor technology to monitor the health of older adults who are living at home. Motion sensor networks installed in seniors’ homes can detect changes in behavior and physical activity, including walking and sleeping patterns. Early identification of these changes can prompt health care interventions that can delay or prevent serious health events.
Ramji Bhandari, Fred vom Saal, and Don Tillitt, researchers with the Division of Biological Sciences and U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), determined that fish exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals such as BPA will pass adverse reproductive effects onto their offspring as many as three generations later.
