A research group led by Professor Byong-hun Jeon at Hanyang University has shown that anaerobic co-digestion of fat, oil, and grease (FOG) is an effective and economical technique, with better biomethanation yield in wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), than anaerobic digestion.
An inflatable pill can be used to monitor infections, cancers, or ulcer, said researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The pill, inspired by puffer fish, is designed to inflate to 100 times its size.

The research team led by Professor Jeong Ho Lee from the Graduate School of Medical Science and Engineering has located the initial mutation that causes glioblastoma, one of the most aggressive and deadly brain tumors.
Professor Sang Yup Lee, a distinguished professor at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has succeeded in improving the production methods of a crucial organometallic compound called “haem”.
A joint research project between IVIM Technology and a team led by Professor Pilhan Kim from the Graduate School of Nanoscience and Technology and Graduate School of Medical Science and Engineering has developed the biomicroscopes IVM-C and IVM-CM.
One may wonder how exactly designers convert 2D designs to 3D designs. As a truer representation of reality, 3D designs naturally require a closer attention to detail for proportions and angles. On top of that, they need to be consistently shaped and structured across all points of view. As a result, designers go through dozens of sketches from different angles and arrive at a prototype after a pa
Recent research results of Professor Sung Yong Kim and his research group from the Department of Mechanical Engineering succeeded in understanding sub-mesoscale currents, characterizing the properties of waves roughly the size of a kilometer.
