FAU to develop unmanned marine vehicles for bridge inspections
Florida has approximately 11,450 bridges and inspecting and maintaining them is arduous, especially since so many of them span rivers, canals and saltwater areas. Researchers at FAU have received a grant from the Florida Department of Transportation to develop unmanned marine vehicles for on-water bridge inspections. Unlike manned vessels, which are continuously teleoperated by a human user, unmanned surface vehicles are capable of operating autonomously without human intervention for prolonged periods of time.

ASU will lead new research network looking at weather extremes and city infrastructure
Extreme weather events can cripple crucial infrastructure that enables transit, electricity, water and other services in urban areas. With weather extremes becoming more common -- from devastating hurricanes and flooding to record drought and heat waves -- it will be increasingly important to develop infrastructure in different, more sustainable ways. That is the idea behind a new Urban Resilience to Extreme Weather-Related Events Sustainability Research Network, recently funded by the National Science Foundation.

Study will explore taste changes related to obesity, gastric bypass surgery
Currently, one of the most effective surgical methods for treating obesity is the Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery, which limits the amount of food and drink that can be ingested at one time and the amount of calories and nutrients absorbed through the intestinal tract. An unintended side effect of RYGB is that it reduces the patient's taste for sweet and fatty foods -- but there is no scientific explanation for why these taste changes occur.
