WPI Research is the university's annual magazine about discovery and innovation with purpose. Feature articles, news items, and notes focus on current research by WPI faculty members and students, major research awards, new faculty books, and faculty honors and achievements. The 2017 edition (PDF) features a cover story on innovative technology developed by researchers in WPI's Learning Sciences and Technologies Program that makes learning more effective by using the power of motion and play. Other features focus on groundbreaking MRI-compatible robots that are transforming cancer diagnosis and treatment; research in the university's Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling that is taking valuable metals out of the waste stream so they can be reused; work by members of WPI's Vernam Group that is helping make cloud computing more secure; and research in digital health that is using data in novel ways to improve the delivery of healthcare. You'll also read about WPI's state-of-the-art Fire Protection Engineering Laboratory, a virtual human that may transform medical research, how WPI's new Center for Advanced Research in Drying may save the United States an extraordinary amount of energy and water, and how WPI's Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center, constructed 10 years ago, set off a cascade of positive change.
