Purdue University Key Developments
Purdue University and Sandia National Laboratories Plan Strategic Alliance
Apr 16 15
Purdue University and Sandia National Laboratories have signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a strategic alliance. Over the next five years, Purdue and Sandia Labs plan to work collaboratively on research challenges and support increased faculty research partnerships. The memorandum also provides exchange opportunities for Sandia staff and Purdue faculty and students. The goals of the alliance are to solve significant problems and accelerate technology adoption while offering new challenges and opportunities for researchers, faculty and students at both Purdue and Sandia. The alliance will provide opportunities for students and faculty to experience research work at a national lab; enable joint recruiting of top graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty; increase transfer of technology from Sandia and the university to the private and federal sectors; and build collaborations that address nationally significant problems.
Wartell settles Lawsuit for $52,500 with Purdue University
Apr 15 15
Former IPFW Chancellor Michael Wartell was paid $52,500 by his former employer when he settled an age discrimination lawsuit with Purdue University in February. In 2012, Purdue University forced the long-serving chancellor to retire, citing a little-used policy that required high-level administrators to retire at 65. Although he was told that he would be forced to retire at the 2012 academic year, Wartell had asked to be allowed to remain at the helm of IPFW until after the school's 50th anniversary celebration in the 2013-14 academic year. His request was denied. Then-Purdue President France Crdova replaced Wartell with Vicky Carwein, who assumed duties in September 2012. Wartell filed an internal complaint with the university, accusing Crdova of gender and age discrimination and of a general personal hostility to him. Purdue hired Indianapolis lawyer John Trimble to investigate, and his report became the subject of court cases and legal wrangling after Purdue refused to turn it over to Wartell, citing attorney. Purdue University Board of Trustees saw the report and denied Wartell's claim. Wartell then sued the university in federal court, raising the same allegations of discrimination and asking for a copy of the report. He also sued the university in Tippecanoe County court, seeking a copy of the report in that case as well. At every stage of the lawsuits, access to the report was denied by Purdue. The lawsuit was settled in February and the report was released a few weeks later.
Tekcapital plc Acquires Exclusive License to Technology for the Measurement of Glucose in Breath from Purdue University
Apr 10 15
Tekcapital plc announced that it has acquired the exclusive license to a patent-pending technology for the measurement of glucose in breath from Purdue University. The technology addresses the need for a safe, fast, accurate and non-invasive method for health professionals to analyse samples of glucose in exhaled breath and adds to Tekcapital's portfolio of patents for the non-invasive measurement of glucose which also includes a technology to test for glucose in saliva. Glucose is a non-volatile molecule found in exhaled breath condensates. Accurately measuring the concentration of glucose in exhaled breath may allow for the non-invasive estimation of glucose concentration in blood, which in turn could be used for routine monitoring of the blood glucose concentration in diabetic patients. Currently, there is no commercially available device to collect exhaled breath condensate and measure its glucose level. Purdue University researchers have developed a novel glucose breath monitor that could reduce the need for invasive glucose monitoring. The glucose monitor consists of a breath condensing unit that monitors the temperature, volume, and glucose concentration of exhaled breath along with a condenser for background air. The glucose concentration of exhaled breath condensate is corrected for the humidity and glucose concentration of background air that could deliver more reliable measurements compared to those of similar technologies. The blood glucose concentration is calculated from its correlation with the corrected glucose concentration in the exhaled breath condensate. The advantages of this technology is that the sensor system does not require blood samples while simultaneously reducing measurement complications that may result from humidity and glucose in air.
