University of Notre Dame biometrics researchers "Kevin Bowyer":http://news.nd.edu/for-the-media/nd-experts/faculty/kevin-bowyer/ and "Estefan Ortiz":http://engineering.nd.edu/profiles/eortiz have released a paper that points to errors in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) report on how iris aging affects the accuracy of iris recognition. In addition to describing specific methodological errors in the NIST report, Bowyer and Ortiz presented a list of suggestions to be addressed in a revised version of the NIST report.
The University of Notre Dame’s "Graduate School":http://graduateschool.nd.edu recognized 438 master’s and 213 doctoral degree recipients and presented several awards during Commencement ceremonies Saturday (May 17) in the Compton Family Ice Arena.
Much has been written and discussed about the outlook for science and engineering in the United States. If a recent event at the University of Notre Dame’s Stinson-Remick Hall is any indication, the future looks bright.
Notre Dame to be part of $194-million university research center network focused on next-generation microelectronics
The University of Notre Dame has been selected to lead one of six new university microelectronics research centers that will share $194 million in funding from the "Semiconductor Research Corp.":http://www.src.org/ (SRC) and the "Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency":http://www.darpa.mil/ (DARPA) to support the continued growth and leadership of the U.S. semiconductor industry.

Since the early days of iris recognition technologies, it has been assumed that the iris was a “stable” biometric over a person’s lifetime -- “one enrollment for life.” However, new findings by University of Notre Dame researchers indicate that iris biometric enrollment is susceptible to an aging process that causes recognition performance to degrade slowly over time.
Notre Dame researcher’s paper examines the biology and clinical application of tumor-derived microvesicles
p(image-right). !http://newsinfo.nd.edu/assets/71285/june_15_gad_200.jpg("Genes and Development," June 15, 2012)! A new paper by "Crislyn D’Souza-Schorey":http://newsinfo.nd.edu/for-the-media/nd-experts/faculty/crislyn-d-souza-schorey/, professor of "biological sciences":http://biology.nd.edu/ at the University of Notre Dame, discusses the biology of tumor-derived microvesicles and their clinical application as circulating biomarkers. Microvesicles are membrane-bound sacs released by tumor cells and can be detected in the body fluids of cancer patients.
The University of Notre Dame’s "Graduate School":http://graduateschool.nd.edu recognized 389 master’s and 209 doctoral degree recipients and presented several awards during Commencement ceremonies Saturday (May 19) in the Compton Family Ice Arena.
A team of researchers from the University of Notre Dame have demonstrated a novel DNA detection method that could prove suitable for many real-world applications. Physicists "Carol Tanner":http://physics.nd.edu/people/faculty/carol-e-tanner/ and "Steven Ruggiero":http://physics.nd.edu/people/faculty/steven-t-ruggiero/ led the team in the application of a new technique called laser transmission spectroscopy (LTS). LTS is capable of rapidly determining the size, shape and number of nanoparticles in suspension.
