"Out of the Darkness" Walk for Suicide Prevention
April 17, 2013

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.

Q&A With Dr. Bonnie Dunbar

Q&A With Dr. Bonnie Dunbar
March 25, 2013

The University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering is proud to present our Q&A with Dr. Bonnie Dunbar, Ph.D., NAE. This video serves as a special supplement to the print version of our Q&A session with Dr. Dunbar, which can be found in our Spring 2013 issue of Parameters. 

Dunbar is a retired astronaut, National Academy of Engineering Member and alumna of the Cullen College of Engineering. She now returns to UH to serve as the leader of the University of Houston STEM Center as well as professor in the college's mechanical and biomedical engineering departments.

UH Moment: Improving Treatment for Melanoma Patients

Improving Treatment for Melanoma Patients
February 5, 2014

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.

HoustonPBS UH Moment: Building a More Powerful Wind Turbine

Building a More Powerful Wind Turbine
January 10, 2014

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.

Making Waves: Understanding the Brain Through Dance & Engineering

Making Waves: Understanding the Brain Through Dance & Engineering
May 13, 2013

Professional dancers are working with researchers from the University of Houston and the University of Maryland, College Park inside UH's Brain-Machine Interface Systems Laboratory to study brainwave patterns and transform them into tools to give new life to people with physical challenges, like spinal cord injuries. The project is the result of a unique, creative collaboration between UH electrical and computer engineering professor Jose Luis Contreras-Vidal and UMCP theatre, dance and performance professor Karen Bradley.

Did LiDAR Uncover the Lost City?
November 28, 2012

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.

HoustonPBS UH Moment: Brain-Controlled Exoskeleton Making Strides

Brain-Controlled Exoskeleton Making Strides
November 13, 2012

Steve Holbert was paralyzed in a dirt bike accident in late 2009. “I broke five vertebrae and injured my spinal cord and have been paralyzed ever since,” said Holbert. His hope is to completely recover from his spinal cord injury and one day walk again. That’s why he’s agreed to participate in the research of Jose Luis “Pepe” Contreras-Vidal, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering and director of the Laboratory for Non-invasive Brain-Machine Interface Systems.  Contreras-Vidal is working on a brain-machine interface (BMI) that would allow patients like Holbert to control prosthetic limbs through their own thoughts. Holbert’s is testing a self-balancing lower limb exoskeleton.
