Living the Promise: Technology at University of California Riverside

Spider silks are composed almost
entirely of protein. A spider can make multiple
types of silk and each type of silk has its very specific
function. The technological applications from
these test results is really enormous for all sorts of
engineering, industrial, military, and medical
possibilities. The materials that are currently
available for implants do not have the optical
properties that new materials can provide. We have identified a potential solution for developing new
cranial implants. So these projects is very valuable
because it allows different research disciplines to work
together towards developing a new material that
could be technologically very important. Our technologies mainly focus on
developing bioreverseical medical devices and implants. Our research is to address those issues related to current
devices: and also provide additional benefits in tissue heating
and repair. Our research is important because our
new bioresorbable biodegradable materials can reduce the secondary surgeries
required for many patients when they use permanent implants
currently and also we reduce health care costs and improve the quality of life. I’ve always been motivated by doing research that is useful. The
opportunities that UCR uses allows to generate new medical
technology. Working with students is also something very gratifying. You get to see
how they gradually progress and become more and more knowledgeable. I feel fortunate to work at UCR With all the facilities available to my
research. I really enjoyed working with wonderful
groups of students from diverse backgrounds and they all
come together work together collaboratively to
produce exciting research results. The University
of California Riverside is a great place for research for many
reasons. Not only do we educate undergraduates and graduate students;
We create knowledge. It’s an environment where chance
discoveries can be made and that’s something to me that’s the
value a research university. I’m
