Alabama academic researchers work to power new discoveries

Researchers at universities across Alabama are involved in groundbreaking work that is bringing promising new developments to industry, healthcare and community life.

In many instances, the projects have been recognized by national research groups, which are funneling millions of dollars in funding into the state.

At the University of South Alabama, an engineering professor has extensively studied carbon fiber reinforced polymer composites, which are increasingly used in new airplane construction.

Kuang-Ting Hsiao’s work has been funded by NASA, the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy. He’s also collaborated with aerospace giant Airbus, which began delivering its first Alabama-made passenger jets earlier this year.
