The Bicycle Infrastructure and Improvement Committee (BIIC) was formed in late 2010 by SGA, to bring together graduate and undergraduate students with staff members of the Georgia Tech offices of Capital Planning and Space Management, Parking and Transportation, Facilities, and GTPD. Together they are tasked with improving bicycle infrastructure on campus through the evaluation of existing facilities, the creation of events and programs, securing funding for facility improvements, and other related endeavors. They represent a commitment of students and staff to sustainability, mobility, safety, healthy living, and a choice of travel modes.

New work reported from the labs of SMI Professor Jennifer Curtis (School of Physics) introduces a versatile platform to grow ultra-thick, dense hyaluronan (HA) polymer brushes from surfaces using immobilized fragments of enzyme-rich bacterial membranes. This new method provides a path to improved biocompatibility and dynamic control of biointerfaces that potentially can be grown in vivo or regenerated after wear. The research was published in Nature Communications under open access (Nat. Commun. 2019, 10, 5527).
Applications for summer or fall GT 1000 team leaders (TLs) are being accepted until Jan. 24.
The demand for archival data storage has been skyrocketing, and if a new research initiative reaches its goals, that need could be met by taking advantage of an efficient and robust information storage medium that has proven itself through the centuries: the biopolymer DNA.
