  Two Penn Seniors to Aid Parkinson's Patients With Innovative Motion-tracking Device
 
As two of the four winners of the inaugural President's Innovation Prize, Alfredo Muniz, senior in Electrical and Systems Engineering and Sade Oba, senior in Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics, aim to buildwearable sensors that track the movement of their user's limbs throughout the day. Doctors, physical therapists and their patients can use this data as part of treatment regimes to monitor progress and set goals.

  Penn Engineers Develop First Transistors Made Entirely of Nanocrystal 'Inks'
 
In a study led by Cherie Kagan, Stephen J. Angello Professor in Electrical and Systems Engineering, Penn engineers have shown a new approach for making transistor fabrication devices: sequentially depositing their components in the form of liquid nanocrystal "inks." Their new study opens the door for electrical components to be built into flexible or wearable applications.
