New low-cost surgical instrument moves like a surgeon’s hand
In an era of spiraling healthcare cost concerns, a new $500 surgical instrument developed at the University of Michigan is vying to take the place of a $2 million robot for certain minimally invasive procedures.
How an Ice Age paradox could inform sea level rise predictions
The behavior of an ancient ice sheet—called Laurentide—has puzzled scientists for decades. Now, new research findings at U-M not only explain this but could also add evidence that climate change could drastically raise sea levels.
Quantum limits to heat flow observed at room temperature
Quantum mechanics governs the flow of heat in atoms and Michigan Engineers have directly measured a “quantum of thermal conductance” at room temperature.
New restrooms help demonstrate urine fertilizer concept
