Engineering a Better Future

Doctoral candidate snags fellowship for work assessing infrastructure vulnerability to natural disasters

On the night of June 20, 1990, 8-year-old Behrouz Shafei was up late watching soccer on TV when his world suddenly convulsed. A 7.4 magnitude earthquake centered some 150 miles from his home in Tehran claimed more than 40,000 lives.

“It was my first inspiration to study natural hazards,” Shafei says. “Like California, Iran is a high-seismic area. I wanted to contribute to society in a meaningful way that crosses borders and nationalities. Natural disasters do not recognize manmade boundaries.”

Biomedical Researchers Awarded $1 Million Keck Foundation Grant

Three UCI researchers receive funds to develop a nanoscale imaging microscope

Biomedical Engineering Professor Enrico Gratton, Ph.D., Research Associate Michelle Digman, Ph.D., and Developmental and Cell Biology Professor J. Lawrence Marsh, Ph.D., have been awarded a $1 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation to engineer a nanoscale imaging microscope capable of observing single-cell migration in vivo. Matching funds were also awarded by the UC Irvine Office of Research to support the establishment of the "W.M. Keck Nanoimaging Laboratory,” whose mission is to develop technologies that will revolutionize how protein dynamics are measured.

A Revolution in the Making

Engineering school's new RapidTech center could alter U.S. manufacturing

Imagine being able to sketch a new musical instrument or design a lifesaving medical part and within hours have in hand a three-dimensional prototype with details as precise as one-twentieth the width of a human hair.

UC Irvine’s Marc Madou, Chancellor’s Professor of mechanical & aerospace engineering, is working closely with Tommaso Baldacchini, a staff scientist at Newport Corp., on manufacturing technology that could do just that – radically changing how things are made.

Improving Biomedical Implants

UCI researcher Wendy Liu is trying to make the lifesaving devices less life-threatening

Every year, more than half a million people in the United States undergo surgery for biomedical implants – like stents or heart valves – intended to save their lives, according to the American Heart Association. Unfortunately, these devices themselves can sometimes cause a potentially fatal immune system response.

To help prevent this, UC Irvine biomedical engineer Wendy Liu is researching safer coatings for implants that dissolve inside the body when their work is done.
