Georgia Tech professor gets grant to create database of Atlanta streets.
Take a walk on a number of streets in Virginia-Highland, and you'll notice the deplorable condition and dangers they pose to pedestrians and joggers, dads pushing strollers or those with physical handicaps. The neighborhood's sidewalk problem — chronicled last year in a Virginia-Highland—Druid Hills Patch special report — isn't lost on Randall Guensler, who lives in the community and is a professor at Georgia Tech in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Guensler secured a $400,000, two-year grant from the Southeastern Transportation Research, Innovation, Development and Education Center at the University of Florida and the U.S. Department of Transportation to create a database of Atlanta's sidewalk infrastructure and physical…

Grants focus on how the body harnesses its own potential to heal or regenerate following trauma or disease.
Friday, December 28, 2012
By Abby Robinson The Emory/Georgia Tech Regenerative Engineering and Medicine Center recently awarded 11 seed grants, totaling $630,000, for promising new research in regenerative medicine. The seed grants focus on how the body—including bone, muscle, nerves, blood vessels and tissues—can harness its own potential to heal or regenerate following trauma or disease. “We looked for projects along the innovation spectrum, including early-stage projects for which the potential payoffs justified taking the risk and projects supported by preliminary data that were at an advanced preclinical or early clinical stage,” Regenerative Engineering and Medicine Center Co-Director Robert Guldberg, a mechanical engineering professor at Georgia Tech, said …

High school students celebrated the regional kickoff to the 2011 FIRST Robotics Competition Saturday on the Georgia Tech campus, including Grady High's robotics team the Gearbox Gangstaz.
It's not about the robots. That was the mantra Saturday, Jan. 8, at the regional kick-off for the international FIRST Robotics Competition. Hundreds of high school students gathered on the Georgia Tech campus to get instructions for this year's game and collect their team's "kit of parts." In six weeks the teams, including Grady High School's Gearbox Gangstaz, are expected to transform that box of wires, battery, plastic discs and metal plates into a fully functioning robot that can move freely, throw colorful tubes onto hooks and eject a pole-climbing "mini-bot." The sooner a team designs and builds the robot, the more time they have to troubleshoot before regional competitions in March and April, and hopefully, the final championship the…
