The GW Virginia Science and Technology Campus is a world-class center of collaboration with laboratories, centers and institutes conducting interdisciplinary research in many growing fields. VSTC faculty, graduate students and research scientists—in collaboration with government and corporate partners—are advancing human knowledge in a number of STEM disciplines, including the following focus areas:
Saniya LeBlanc, an assistant professor in GW's School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS), has recently been awarded a Commonwealth Research Commercialization Fund (CRCF) grant by Gov. Terry McAuliffe to continue her work developing technologies that address the growing demand for energy and improving their energy efficiency.
Dean Ali Eskandarian is one of three editors of the new book--Logic and Algebraic Structures in Quantum Computing.
"Restaurants can be stressful for my daughter Frances, who has autism, but her difficulties led me to try to better understand and treat her type of situational anxiety," said Dr. Kevin Pelphrey, director of GW's Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute.
Researchers have developed a new method to map and track the function of brain circuits affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in boys using brain imaging, a technique that will provide doctors with a tool that measures the progress of treatments in individual patients.
GW “Lights it Up Blue” throughout the month of April to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day. GW will invest more than $5 million to establish the GW Autism and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute. The Institute will be primarily based at VSTC.
In the advancement of alternative energy sources, and the critical importance of the global warming, magnetic refrigeration is a promising energy efficient and environmentally friendly technology to replace conventional vapor-compression techniques. Our research aims to design, develop, and implement the first scalable commercially viable compressor-free magnetic refrigerator system.
Core expert Jenna Wolfe finds out her resting metabolic rate with the help of Dr. Todd Miller at the Milken Institute School of Public Health's Weight Management and Human Performance Laboratory and then puts the negative calorie diet to the test. Aired Feb. 8, 2016 on the Dr. Oz show.
Kevin Pelphrey, a global leader in autism research, and $5 million investment will transform GW into a top research and treatment center for adolescents and young adults with autism. The Institute will be based on the Virginia Science and Technology Campus.
The George Washington University and Telos Corporation have signed a five-year agreement to support research and development in big data and data analytics in Northern Virginia.
