WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—New research from Purdue will help advance fields from agriculture to medicine.

The technology showcase was held at the Kurz Purdue Technology Center on Thursday.

Innovations were presented in four categories, Materials and Manufacturing, Technology, Agriculture, and Life Sciences.

One potential treatment discussed today was light therapy.

Which is an anti-cancer treatment involving a drug called photosynthesizer followed by light exposure.

Chemistry Professor Herman Sintim said this showcase can be groundbreaking for many areas of research.

"The reason why this, in my opinion, should be important to the person on the street is that we're trying to build new molecules that can tackle some of the difficult to treat cancers."

This is the second annual Technology Showcase put on by the Office of Technology Commercialization.
