Digital Therapy Platform Improves Access to Mental Health Care

The need for easy access to mental health care is higher than ever in the post-COVID era. Rural populations face additional barriers to consistent access to care simply due to the location of services and associated transportation challenges. In response, Dr Cory Crane, Dr Cassandra Berbary and team are leading a large NIH-sponsored research project focused developing and rolling out resources to individuals and providers in rural communities. The plan is to create a new way to access therapeutic resources for opioid addiction, substance abuse and other co-occurring mental health conditions – digitally! Examples of resources available include a digital avatar to assist with treatment for mood disorders, a digital legal resource and public service announcements for behavioral health stigma.

    Researcher bridges biology and computing with processing in DNA storage

    An engineering researcher at RIT has discovered the means to process data using DNA. Amlan Ganguly, computer engineering department head in RIT’s Kate Gleason College of Engineering, and researchers at the University of Minnesota, designed a microfluidic integrated circuit to perform complex operations through artificial neural network computations on data stored in DNA.

    RIT researchers develop new technique to study how cancer cells move

    In tumors, cells follow microscopic fibers, comparable to following roads through a city. Researchers at Rochester Institute of Technology developed a new technique to study different features of these “fiber highways” to provide new insights into how cells move efficiently through the tumor environment.

    RIT researcher receives NIH funding to help design better drugs

    Emiliano Brini, assistant professor in the School of Chemistry and Materials Science, has received an award from the National Institutes of Health to support his research on building the next generation of drugs. Brini and his team of students will develop computational tools that can predict the strength of the interaction between two proteins and how drugs will modify this interaction.
