Research at Virginia Tech that impacts everyday life will be featured May 16-22 on the Science Coalition's website, a comprehensive resource for information on federally funded science research. The Science Coalition website featuring Virginia Tech will present research by faculty members and students looking at obesity and stiff arteries, wireless networks and smart garments, brain tumors, cultural and archeological history of Southside Virginia, recovering discarded coal, theater production, architecture design, tsunami recovery, information assurance, and global e-commerce.

Each week, the Coalition highlights scientific advances and on-going research at member universities.
