Partnership With Cornell Tests Effects of Earthquakes on Critical Pipeline Systems
*

Rensselaer is partnering with Cornell University to test the effects of earthquakes on underground pipeline systems used for water, electric power, gas and liquid fuel, telecommunications, transportation, and waste.

The four-year project is funded by a $2 million National Science Foundation (NSF) Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation (NEES) research grant.

Recalls of popular prescription drugs are raising public concern about the general safety of new pharmaceuticals.

A collaborative group of researchers at Rensselaer, University of California-Berkeley, and Solidus Biosciences Inc. says that identifying which drug candidates are toxic early in the discovery process can help prevent harmful pharmaceuticals from being placed on the market in the first place — and they have developed a tool to do it.
