Story tips from the US Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory -- June 2010

SENSORS - Data a click away . . .

With a network of more than 5,000 sensors that monitor weather conditions, seismic activity, traffic, bacteria on beaches, water levels and much more, Sensorpedia is a significant resource that continues to expand. Sensorpedia, developed three years ago by Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Bryan Gorman and David Resseguie, connects first responders, individuals and communities with online sensor data in the United States and beyond. "Sensorpedia combines the best of Facebook and YouTube and continues to expand and evolve to meet the demands and needs of users," Resseguie said. Sneak peeks of Sensorpedia, which is in beta testing, are available at http://www.sensorpedia.com. Funding for Sensorpedia is provided by the Department of Homeland Security-sponsored Southeast Region Research Initiative. [Contact: Ron Walli, (865) 576-0226; wallira@ornl.gov]

MEDICINE - Eliminating guesswork . . .

Armed with neutron imaging, a team led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory's Trent Nichols, a doctor of internal medicine who also holds a doctorate in physics, hopes to improve the odds for patients with cancer. The proposed work of a team that includes veterinarians and scientists from diverse disciplines could ultimately lead to less guesswork for surgeons and pathologists. "The prognosis and treatment plan after resection depends to a great extent on knowing whether the tumor is completely contained or extends beyond the block of resected tissue," Nichols said. With the aid of a low-energy neutron imaging system and boronated tissue stains, the picture should become much clearer between normal and malignant cells. Funding for the initial work is being provided through ORNL's seed money program. The team plans to submit a proposal to the National Institutes of Health for follow-on funding.
