Save the date: Research Expo 2012 is on April 12th.

Unmanned aerial vehicles that fly like birds. Devices that could revolutionize medical technology. Tools for faster and better programming. Systems to make rail travel safer. These were just a few of approximately 250 innovations on display at the graduate student poster session at the Jacobs School's Research Expo 2011. This year's expo, sponsored by ViaSat, Life Technologies and Qualcomm, also included faculty tech talks and a keynote by Greg Lucier, CEO of Life Technologies. At the poster session, graduate students from all six departments showcased their work and networked with attendees from industry, government and nonprofit sectors. Judges singled out six posters - one per department and one overall top prize. Read on to find out more and search abstracts from the expo:
