Last month, four researchers were selected to have samples analyzed by the UT Genomics Core and Illumina, a company that helps analyze genetic variation using the NovaSeq 6000 Next-Gen sequencing platform. Data from these experiments are expected to provide a foundation for current and upcoming research projects.

Assistant Professor of Architecture Maged Guerguis saw a way to improve an essential protective device for healthcare workers serving on the front lines against COVID-19. The shield, named “UT-Shield,” weighs two ounces, assembles in five seconds, and provides improved comfort and maximum protection for medical professionals.

One week you’re climbing up to Machu Picchu. The next, you can barely climb out of bed. This was Jim Froula’s experience with COVID-19. Froula (BS/ME ’67, MS/ME ’68), age 74, woke up to a near-constant cough that was quickly succeeded by fever, severe lethargy, and shortness of breath—all tell-tale signs of the virus.
