REHEAL glove

Dallas NPR affiliate, KERA/90.1 FM, reported today that scientists at the UTA Research Institute are developing the REHEAL glove, a specialized glove that can deliver medicine to an injured hand to help speed up healing time and make the process less painful. “What we’re trying to do is distribute delivery and extraction fluid throughout the glove. That way it is easy to address each and every area of the hand,” principal research scientist Muthu Wijesundara said.

SMART bandage

UTA is collaborating with an interdisciplinary and medical team of renowned researchers in creating the Sensing, Monitoring And Release of Therapeutics, or SMART, bandage system that can monitor and cure wounds in real time, Texas Medical Research reported. Weidong Zhou, professor of electrical engineering, is the principal investigator on a $100,000 grant from the Texas Medical Research Collaborative, which will fund the research.

CASA radar network expands

A Fort Worth Star-Telegram report about a newly installed CASA radar in northwest Fort Worth noted that one of the radars is installed at UTA. In all, six have been installed across the region. The radars work as a network to give forecasters more than one view of a storm.

UTA artist lauded

Dallas Morning News arts critic Rick Bretell commented about work by Sedrick Huckaby, assistant professor of Art and Art History at UTA, in a piece about African-American artist Kehinde Wiley. His work is currently on display at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. “While I was in the Modern’s admirably installed Wiley survey, I found myself wishing the same galleries could have been filled with Huckaby’s work,” Bretell wrote.

UTA exhibit noted

D Magazine noted the exhibit, John Wilcox: Diptychs and Polyptychs at The Wilcox Space, which includes representations of Wilcox’s work by Benjamin Lima, assistant professor Art and Art History at University of Texas at Arlington.

Veterans Day events

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram noted that UTA has a full day of events Wednesday to honor its military men and women.
