Meet UCF’s 'Cancer Assassins'

As we prepare for Saturday’s AutoNation Cure Bowl, featuring our own UCF Knights, we know that the game’s proceeds benefit the College of Medicine’s Dr. Annette Khaled. She’s developing new technologies to stop metastatic breast cancer cells in their tracks. The medical school has a team of “Cancer Assassins” – researchers in the Burnett School […]

DNA-Repairing Protein May Be Key To Preventing Recurrence of Some Cancers

Just as the body can become resistant to antibiotics, certain methods of killing cancer tumors can end up creating resistant tumor cells. But a University of Central Florida professor has found a protein present in several types of cancer, including breast and ovarian cancer, which could be helpful in preventing tumors from coming back. The […]

This UCF-Designed Tech is Amazing

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.
