Variable Stiffness Robotic Gripper Using Permanent Magnets
This invention is a device to control and adjust the position and compliance—or “give”—of the “fingers” on a gripper robot. The present invention also estimates contact forces without force sensors to reduce bulk on the gripper assembly. It provides for low friction, compactness, and an improvement of the robustness...

Smart Health Monitoring & Diagnosis System based on Wearable Nano-biosensing Networks
This invention is comprised of a flexible bio-photonic sensing implant and an external device capable of activating and obtaining data from the same. A small surface plasmon resonance grating is implanted subcutaneously in a patient. This grating is bio-functionalized, that is locations on its surface are chemically optimized to attach specific analytes....

A Novel Marker for Detection of Prostate Cancer
In 2012 a novel isoform of myosine IC designated isoform A was discovered. Several years later tissue distribution studies discovered it was overexpressed in prostate cancer tissues and metastatic cells. Overexpression of isoform A can be detected at both the protein and RNA level. The tools developed by the inventors for expression detection include...

Polar Coding for Noisy Write-Once Memories (Cal Tech lead)
Write-once memory is a model for data-storage devices, where a set of binary cells are used to store data, and the cell levels can only increase when the data is rewritten. The WOM model was recently identified as a good model for flash memories, where rewriting delays expensive block erasures and by that leads to better preservation of cell quality...

Iron Complexes as PARACEST Magnetic Resonance Imaging Agents and for Temperature Dependent Chemical Shift Imaging
Elevated iron levels have been identified in a variety of neurologic disorders, including Parkinson’s, Huntington’s, Alzheimer’s, Friedreich’s ataxia and multiple sclerosis. It has been hypothesized that excess iron may play a role in the progressive deterioration observed in patients suffering from those diseases. Current...

A Medium- Access Control Scheme for Ultrasonic Communications in the Human Body Based on Second Order Statistics
While most research in body area networks to date has focused on traditional RF communications along the body surface, the core challenge of enabling networked intra-body communications through body tissues is substantially unaddressed. RF waves are in fact known to suffer from high absorption and to lead to overheating of human tissues. UB researchers...

Method to Remove Transition Metals from Chemical Reactions
Despite the ubiquitous use of metal catalysts, their removal and recovery from post-reaction mixtures remains a major concern. Traditional removal methods such as chromatography, activated carbon, extraction, distillation and recrystallization are less than ideal, either because they do not effectively remove metal impurities or require significant...
