When SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, began to spread through the US in spring 2020, Michigan Tech got to . . .

Advanced materials can still be organic in nature. Cross-laminated timber is a popular building material and Michigan Tech researchers like doctoral graduate Munkaila Musah ’19 are experimenting with using hardwoods like maple.
Research in Brief

From Michigan-made materials to Antarctic lakes to the wildfires out West, here is the breadth of research led by Michigan . . .

Student researchers watch a lunar rover running slope tests in a fully enclosed chamber
      that recreates the moon’s dusty conditions. They took first place in the 2020 Breakthrough,
      Innovative and Game-changing (BIG) Idea Challenge run by the National Aeronautics
