Atlanta —Three years after breaking ground, Georgia Tech is set to dedicate the Marcus Nanotechnology Building, one of the most ambitious and expensive projects in the Institute’s history. The ceremony was held on Friday, April 24, at 3PM

The 190,000-square-foot complex poises Georgia Tech to be a global hub for nanotechnology research and development while igniting an environment that could potentially transform both local and state economies.

Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Leslie Vosshall dreams of a day when her findings on insect olfaction are used to develop a strategy for blunting an insect's sense of smell. Without smell, blood-thirsty mosquitoes would be blinded to the scent of humans, and medflies would be unable to find their way to citrus crops.

Vosshall and her colleagues at Rockefeller University have been working to understand how the insect olfactory system works, always keeping their eyes on the bigger picture: New knowledge about how insects detect odors and how odors influence their behavior may help researchers identify new ways to fend off pests that transmit diseases like malaria or ravage agricultural crops.

Organic Photovoltaic (OPVs) solar cells can achieve moderate power conversion efficiencies at low cost,

Organic Photovoltaic (OPVs) solar cells can achieve moderate power conversion efficiencies at low cost. They can be made at room temperature by high speed coating and printing of large flexible plastic substrates at the fraction of a cost compared to the conventional single crystal or amorphous silicon solar cells.
