Six faculty members at The University of Texas at Austin share their thoughts on the politics, procedure, and implications of the Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act.
With nearly half a million new cases diagnosed every year, multi-drug-resistant tuberculosis is a major worldwide health concern. The disease is especially prevalent in areas where medical care is sparse, meaning it can take weeks to get back test results. Andrew Ellington, a professor of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Texas at Austin, is developing new tests to detect the presence of tuberculosis and other diseases rapidly and inexpensively, even when the nearest hospital is miles away. The technology could ultimately push health care in a new direction that gives patients more control over their own medical decisions.
