An App a Day

Open wide and say “Aah.” Not your mouth – your smart phone or laptop.

Mobile health applications are multiplying like cells in a petri dish. Consumers will soon have 600 million to choose from, analysts say. By 2015, more than a third of the nation’s 1.4 billion smart phone users will run some type of medical app.

At the UC Irvine division of the California Institute for Telecommunications & Information Technology, researchers, computer scientists, engineers, biologists, chemists and game developers in the new eHealth Collaboratory meld their expertise to produce these applications for healthcare consumers as well as providers.

Port-wine stain masters

Beckman Laser Institute clinic leads the way in research, treatment of vascular birthmarks

Most people have some sort of birthmark, a small skin blemish easily hidden under clothing or hair. But three out of every 1,000 American children are born with a larger type of birthmark called a port-wine stain that can significantly affect their quality of life.

Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev’s forehead hosts perhaps the world’s most famous port-wine stain. These disfiguring vascular birthmarks — which literally look like red wine splashed on the skin — can cover large areas of the face, neck and upper body and left untreated can darken and swell into hard lumps, leading to bleeding and infections.

Building better lives

When four members of the UC Irvine student chapter of Engineers Without Borders headed to Endana, Kenya, last August to see how they could best help the rural community, it proved to be a real-life pass/fail test in leadership.

"We didn't know what we were getting into," recalls Morgan Bailey, EWB chapter president and a doctoral candidate in environmental engineering. "Up to 70 percent of the people are unemployed. Many have tuberculosis. They drink mud for water. You find yourself asking, 'What can I do?' It kind of overwhelms you."

Taking the ‘Waste’ Out of Nuclear Waste

Chemical engineer advocates recycling uranium, plutonium and other radioactive byproducts

While spent nuclear fuel continues to pile up by the ton across the United States, UC Irvine’s Mikael Nilsson says the solution is clear: recycle it at the commercial nuclear power plants that create it.

More than 96 percent of the waste – namely uranium and plutonium – can be used again, says the assistant professor of chemical engineering & materials science, and plants in Europe and Asia are doing just that. Nilsson’s laboratory research is focused on how to recycle or destroy the remaining 3 to 4 percent.
