Millis’ pitch was straightforward: Boody needed an exit plan, and countless frustrated homeowners needed Boody’s expertise. Millis became CEO in the renamed Scientific Environmental Design, which launched in 2016 to take Boody’s life work — reducing heating and air-conditioning costs — and scale it to thousands of homes a year.

UNCG scientists are the first in the world to create a compound that targets just one signaling mechanism in cannabinoid receptors, cellular-level structures that influence all sorts of neurological and physical functions.
The discovery could lead to new medicines for treating a wide range of illnesses — glaucoma, chemotherapy-induced nausea, post-traumatic stress syndrome, autoimmune disorders, and
more, says Dr. Patricia Reggio, Marie Foscue Rourk Professor of Chemistry.
What do California field mice, delphacid planthoppers, and honeybee queens have in common? UNCG mathematicians.
At UNCG, an emerging cluster of mathematicians and their students are collaborating with biologists here and at other universities. The field is called math biology or biomathematics.
