Eyes in the Skies

Wake Forest University scientists pioneer using drone aircraft for ecological monitoring. They're flying drones over the Amazon rainforest to study the tree canopy and the amount of carbon dioxide the forest releases.

Medical Metals

Researchers at North Carolina A&T State University are developing new materials that could revolutionize medical treatment. Right now, every metal that goes into the body goes in with the notion it will stay there forever, but NC A&T is developing smart implants, that would be absorbed by the body once their work is finished.

Ocean Energy

Scientists at UNC Coastal Studies Institute are testing new technologies that would harness the power of the ocean to create new sources of energy. Ongoing studies look at the energy potential and feasibility of generating energy from wind, waves, and currents.
