In a masterful merger of engineering, physics and biology, ASU researchers have developed a briefcase-size device that can continuously detect trace bacterial levels in the ocean, quantify microbes in the soil, detect pathogens in our food and more.

ASU researchers are working to improve aspects of lung engineering that may in the future contribute to providing a nearly limitless supply of donor organs, ideally matched to their recipients, or to repairing damaged lungs.

ASU scientists took an atomic-scale look at the deadly rabbit fever bacterium, which could lead to improved therapies and potential vaccines.
