Synthetic Binders of Breast Cancer Stem Cells
In recent decades, abundant research data has indicated the existence of cancer stem cells (CSCs), which represent a small, but significant, population among all cells within tumor tissues. These CSCs are mostly responsible for resistance to chemotherapy and radiation therapy, thereby becoming a root of tumor recurrence and metastasis. Several known...

Entering the Fourth Dimension - Manufacturing Responsive Liquid Crystal Elastomer Structures
The University of Texas at Dallas is seeking companies interested in commercializing an innovative method for fabricating Liquid Crystal Elastomer (LCE) structures that undergo reversible actuation in a wide variety of environments. This method uses direct-write additive manufacturing to locally-control the molecular orientation of LCEs, thereby programming...

Intelligent Textiles Prepared from Nanofiber Yarns and Polymer Fiber Actuators
While there has always been a desire for smart textiles, including fabrics which adapt depending on environmental stimuli, it has yet to be effectively accomplished due to the lack of suitable materials. These polymer fiber actuators have enabled the creation of fabrics that can reversibly change properties such as porosity, shape, color and texture....

Sheath-Core Fibers for Superelastic Electronics, Sensors, and Muscles
Summary:From fitness trackers to smart clothing, wearables are in high demand. Researchers at UT Dallas have invented a new class of elastic wires that can be woven into clothing or made into super-stretchy charger cords. Lighter-than-air, electrically conductive sheets of tiny carbon nanotubes are wrapped around a long rubber core to create conducting...
