Students study widespread killer in Appalachia
A Marshall professor and his students are doing their part to get to the heart of cardiovascular disease.
Another focus of the laboratory is nanotechnology. They are working to develop something Blough said is similar to a "molecular conveyer belt." If developed, it could be used to position single molecules at discrete locations on a micro patterned surface.
He said this type of research might one day lead to a "lab on a chip" device that you could hold in the palm of your hand. The device would replace the huge machines currently used for biological testing.
