- Oct 25, 2016 Aras Memisyazici appointed network architect for the Virginia Cyber Range In his new position, Memisyazici will define needs and develop technical strategy for the Virginia Cyber Range, a newly formed virtual center aimed at creating a state-of-the-art platform for cybersecurity education in Virginia.
- Sep 21, 2016 Virginia Cyber Range to enhance cybersecurity education across the commonwealth The initiative will provide advanced cybersecurity training exercises for high school and college students, positioning Virginia to become a leading source of critical cybersecurity expertise for the nation.
- Sep 13, 2016 Enhancing national security by making intelligence software smarter The Discovery Analytics Center and a Virginia-based defense company are working together on software that can predict and adapt to an intelligence analyst's needs.
- Sep 08, 2016 New lab to help establish databases to improve nuclear reactor safety, design The lab, to be built in Randolph Hall, will help nuclear engineers develop and test databases to enable engineers to design safer, more-efficient reactors.
- Sep 01, 2016 Virginia Tech reveals $75 million plan to emphasize intelligent infrastructure More than 80 faculty members from multiple colleges and institutes are involved in the initiative, as the university ties new assets into existing programs and research facilities.
- Aug 18, 2016 Virginia Tech’s new data repository helps researchers share data The easier data is to evaluate and reuse, the simpler it is for researchers to verify others’ results and understand what has already been tested in their fields. Open data repositories allow researchers to spend less time pursuing false leads and more time creating new knowledge.
- Aug 17, 2016 New academic offerings at Virginia Tech for the 2016-17 year The university has exciting new offerings for students in the 2016-17 academic year, including programs, curriculum revisions, resources, and spaces.

- Dec 09, 2016 A step to understanding polymorphs Scientists have looked at some of the organizing principles behind crystal structures with high Z'. This study lies at the very heart of understanding and being able to control properties of molecular structures.
- Dec 09, 2016 Wind turbines may have beneficial effects for crops, research suggests Turbulence created by wind turbines may help corn and soybeans by influencing variables such as temperature and carbon dioxide concentration, according to research. The project drew on data generated by research towers set up on a 200-turbine wind farm in Iowa.
- Dec 09, 2016 Clarifying the behaviors of negative hydrogen ions Scientists has succeeded in revealing the flow of negative hydrogen ions using a combination of infrared lasers and electrostatic probes in the ion-source plasma, which generates a negative-hydrogen-ion beam. This is the first time in the field of fusion research that the detailed ion flow, which changes direction and moves toward the beam direction in the ion source, has been demonstrated experimentally.
- Dec 09, 2016 Researchers watch biomolecules at work Scientists have succeeded in observing an important cell protein at work. To do this, they used a method that allows to measure structural changes within complex molecules. The further developed procedure makes it possible to elucidate such processes in the cell, i.e. in the natural environment. The researchers are also providing a tool kit, which allows a wide range of molecules to be measured.
- Dec 09, 2016 'Hyper-starburst' galaxy churns out stars, clues to universe’s evolution A recently discovered galaxy is undergoing an extraordinary boom of stellar construction.
- Dec 09, 2016 Cloud formation: How feldspar acts as ice nucleus In the atmosphere, feldspar particles act as ice nuclei that make ice crystals grow in clouds and enable precipitation. The reason was found with the help of electron microscopy observations and molecular dynamics computer modeling. The ice nucleus proper is a quasi-hidden crystal surface of the feldspar that is exposed at surface defects only. The researchers present their findings that are of major relevance to the understanding of cloud and precipitation formation in Science.
