Lessons from the 1994 Northridge Quake

Since the magnitude 6.7 Northridge earthquake 20 years ago, researchers at Caltech have learned much more about where earthquakes are likely to happen, and how danger to human life and damage to property might be mitigated when they do occur.

2014 Frontiers in Nano Science and Technology

New Department of Medical Engineering Added by the Caltech Division of Engineering and Applied Science

MedE pulls together faculty from a broad range of specialties, both within EAS and outside it, to create an interdisciplinary program in a critical area of engineering.

A New View into Cardiovascular Disease

About a third of American adults suffer from cardiovascular diseases, which are the underlying cause of about one in three deaths in the U.S. In 2010, cardiovascular diseases generated direct and indirect costs of approximately $503 billion. New techniques to detect these diseases early and provide ongoing health information could significantly reduce such unacceptable human and financial costs.

Materials that Change on Demand

The discovery of new materials with novel properties often spurs leaps in science and technology. One of the most promising advances under way now is the creation of "tunable" materials. Caltech aerospace engineer Dennis Kochmann, who works on the modeling and fabrication of novel materials, is using Caltech Innovation Initiative support to design materials whose performance can be altered on demand.

From Lab-on-a-Chip to Lab-in-the-Body: The Role of Nanotechnology in the Miniaturization of Medical Diagnostic Tools

Caltech's Axel Schere is miniaturizing medical equipment (without benefit of a shrink ray). He'll tell us how to make a sensor small enough to be injected into an artery.

A New Device to Advance Glaucoma Research and Treatment

Glaucoma, the leading cause of blindness, affects some 70 million people, including four million Americans. As Americans age, the problem is expected to worsen in the U.S. There's stronger hope of progress in the fight against glaucoma, thanks to funding from the Caltech Innovation Initiative, a philanthropically funded internal grant program designed to provide research funds to high-risk but potentially high-reward projects that could produce disruptive technologies with practical applications in the marketplace.
