UTC researchers seeking new ways to diagnose, treat coronavirus

Three research projects targeting COVID-19 are now going on through the SimCenter at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The projects are searching for methods to make detection of the virus simpler and also to find ways to combat it. Along with providing $20,000 each for two of the projects, the SimCenter’s supercomputers are capable of quickly crunching massive amounts of data. They also can create computer-based models of

Fighting leukemia at the cellular level

Maximum effectiveness, minimal side effects, least-possible damage to healthy tissue. Scientists have long pursued cancer treatment offering one or more of these benefits, and a researcher at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is now among them. Michael Danquah is researching a highly precise form of treatment delivery—at the nanoscale, molecular level—to fight leukemia. Danquah researched vaccine production as a chemical engineering doctoral student and today is director of
