Penn State Impact videos share stories of critical involvement

University Park, Pa. -- Across the University, Penn State experts are working together to make significant changes in science and medicine. A new series of Penn State Impact videos highlights some of the collaborative research ongoing at Penn State.

Mary Frecker, professor of mechanical engineering, explains how her research team is developing new multifunctional microsurgical tools, in collaboration with the University's nanoparticles experts and researchers at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Ultimately, their goal is to improve endoscopic surgeries by shrinking surgeons' tools as well as patients' recovery time.
