Incubator Company Secures NSF Funding to Develop Software to Fight Cancer

The National Science Foundation recently awarded a grant to an Orlando-based company and UCF Incubator client that could help improve cancer patients’ quality of life and potentially reduce the number of times patients are readmitted to a hospital. “It’s a great honor,” said Rodney Bosley, CEO and director of SegAna. “As we move forward in […]

Fish' Super Power May Offer Clues About Biodiversity Evolution

A group of international scientists, including a University of Central Florida biologist, recently discovered that a species of fish living in the north Atlantic Ocean has an ability to adapt to changing environmental conditions that are linked to the depth of its watery habitat. The unknown mechanism, which gives the roundnose grenadier its “super power,” […]

Breaking Barriers in STEM

With more 31,000 members in the United States and abroad, the National Society of Black Engineers may be one of the largest student-run organizations in the world. Since 1975, it has been carefully constructed to increase the number of black engineers who excel academically, succeed professionally, and positively impact the community. UCF’s chapter of more […]

UCF-led Consortium to Manage Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico

Nanotech Advances Future Mobile Devices and Wearable Technology

A team of UCF scientists has developed a new process for creating flexible supercapacitors that can store more energy and be recharged more than 30,000 times without degrading. The novel method from the University of Central Florida’s NanoScience Technology Center could eventually revolutionize technology as varied as mobile phones and electric vehicles. “If they were to replace the batteries with these supercapacitors, you could charge your mobile phone in a few seconds and you wouldn’t need to charge it again for over a week,” said Nitin Choudhary, a postdoctoral associate who conducted much of the research. Learn more about batteries vs. supercapicitors and additional nanotech research being conducted at UCF.
