    On April 6, 2013, the UH Program for Mastery in Engineering Studies (PROMES) sponsored the 4th Annual Out of the Darkness Campus Walk at Lynn Eusan Park. The student-led event benefits the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and is just one of many events that take place nationwide. PROMES serves as the UH event's sponsor organization, and many volunteers come from the PROMES community.

    Inside a lab at the University of Houston, one professor is working to improve a promising new treatment for melanoma patients. It's called adoptive cell therapy. "We hope to be the first to pioneer this methodology," says Navin Varadarajan, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering.

    A team of University of Houston researchers is developing a superconducting wire with 400 percent the performance of wire available today and an aim to increase the power of wind turbines to 10 megawatts and more. The wire uses minimal rare earth materials. According to Venkat "Selva" Selvamanickam, M.D. Anderson Chair Professor in the UH Cullen College of Engineering, there is a need and interest in to develop higher power wind turbines— those that produce 10 megawatts and more (compared to two megawatts). While UH is not the only university conducting research on superconducting wires for use in the energy industry, specifically wind energy, Selva and his team are taking it a step further— figuring out how to take it to the marketplace, which means learning to scale-up the technology so it can be made cost effectively in large quantities.

    Researchers from the University of Houston’s National Center for Airborne Laser Mapping (NCALM), a collaborative program between UH and the University of California at Berkeley, routinely take to the skies to better understand the ground below using LiDAR, or light detecting and ranging technology. “LiDAR is a fairly new technology that sends LiDAR pulses from the airplane to the ground as your plane is flying,” said Ramesh Shrestha, profressor of civil and environmental engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering.
