The challenge, sparked by the need for an inexpensive and environmentally safe bridge at Fort Bragg in North Carolina was fulfilled by a proposal made by army engineers working with Rutgers and manufacturing licensee Axion International. The principal investigator, Tom Nosker, with Rutgers' Advanced Polymer Center, an affiliate of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, described the construction of a plastic bridge that withstands the load of a M1 Abrams tank, a 70-ton Army tank, as something that had never been done before.

While the latest studies have shown that the current use of high-resolution and complex MRI technology can identify to some extent cancerous or dense tissue in prostate glands, a new concern has risen from this non-invasive identification process. Researchers from Rutgers University and the University of Pennsylvania have recognized the computerized imaging to be problematic due to the inability of radiologists to accurately predict whether abnormal features are actually harmful growth or merely benign in a timely fashion.
