Profile
Founded in 1861, the University of Washington (UW) is one of the oldest state-supported institutions of higher education on the west coast of the United States and is one of the preeminent research universities in the world. The UW has 47,000 students (34,000 undergraduate and 13,000 graduate) and 3,900 full-time faculty, divided into 16 schools and colleges. UW's research budget consistently ranks among the top 5 in both public and private universities in the United States. The UW is also the largest recipient of federal research funding among public universities and second among all public and private universities in the country, a position that the UW has held each year since 1974. The UW faculty includes more than 120 members of the National Academies, thirteen MacArthur Fellows, five winners of the National Medal of Science, and six Nobel Prize winners. Programs from across the campus are ranked among the best in their fields.

Train your robot to feed you dinner

Researchers have developed a robotic system that can feed people who need someone to help them eat. After identifying different foods on a plate, the robot can strategize how to use a fork to pick up and deliver the desired bite to a person's mouth.

Light provides control for 3D printing with multiple materials

3D printing has revolutionized the fields of healthcare, biomedical engineering, manufacturing and art design. Successful applications have come despite the fact that most 3D printing techniques can only produce parts made of one material at a time. More complex applications could be developed if 3D printers could use different materials and create multi-material parts.

First full human 3D printed for radiation therapy research

At just 1 year old, she is 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighs 15 pounds. She can hold 36 gallons of water for up to eight hours. She has a detachable head but remains faceless. Her name is Marie, and no, this is not her online profile.

It's not a shock: Better bandage promotes powerful healing

A new, low-cost wound dressing could dramatically speed up healing in a surprising way. The method leverages energy generated from a patient's own body motions to apply gentle electrical pulses at the site of an injury.

Solar cells need to slim down

Thin-film solar cells could be 1/100th the thickness of a piece of paper and flexible enough to festoon surfaces ranging from an aerodynamically sleek car to clothing. To make thin-film solar cells, scientists are moving beyond the "classic" semiconductor compounds, such as gallium arsenide or silicon, and working instead with other light-harvesting compounds that have the potential to be cheaper and easier to mass produce. The compounds could be widely adopted if they could perform as well as today's technology.
