We are developing new tools to assess the condition of aging concrete structures, new technologies to monitor the structural health of civil infrastructure, and new technologies to repair and reinforce structures (including low-carbon construction materials made with recycled agricultural and industrial wastes).
We are developing, testing, and implementing new water quality sensor technologies to monitor and evaluate the health of water and developing new technologies for treating both potable and waste water. We are also supporting the development of innovative alternative power supplies to support water quality and water treatment technologies.
We are developing and evaluating new technologies that enable improved detection, screening, in-depth characterization, and ongoing monitoring and management of infectious diseases and water-borne and water related infections. We are also developing and evaluating of mobile, networked health technologies, and applying strategies to prevent infectious diseases and improve health outcomes of primary health care, including the delivery of maternal and child health services.
