UNDERSTANDING POROUS MATERIALS: New method could help quantify untapped natural gas reservoirs

Feb. 22, 2018--More than 30 states have shale formations that harbor natural gas underground, according to the Energy Information Administration. But industry experts can’t agree on exactly how much fuel is inside. That’s because natural gas and other hydrocarbons lie inside nano-scale, difficult-to-measure pores in shale rocks, which have properties that are not yet understood.

FIVE WIN SUPPORT FROM UD RESEARCH FOUNDATION: Awards provide traction for promising research

Feb. 22, 2018--Five University of Delaware professors have won support for promising early-phase research projects in widely diverse areas. The new awards from the University of Delaware Research Foundation - give researchers traction in the early stages of projects that support the strategic initiatives of the University, allowing them to develop ideas and build a stronger foundation for future studies.

BREAKING THE RULES OF BRAIN CANCER: UD's Dhurjati, Galileo develop accurate model of how aggressive cancer cells move and spread

Feb. 13, 2018--The collaboration of Prof. Prasad Dhurjati, a chemical engineer who has done extensive computer modeling of biological and engineering systems, and Prof. Deni Galileo, a neurobiologist whose expertise is in cell motion and behavior in the brain, has produced a new and freely available computer program that predicts cancer cell motion and spread with high accuracy. An article on their model was recently published in BMC Systems Biology.

PAPOUTSAKIS ELECTED TO NATIONAL ACADEMY OF ENGINEERING: Chemical engineer joins top engineering ranks

Feb. 8, 2018--Eleftherios (Terry) Papoutsakis, Unidel Eugene du Pont Chair of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). He was selected “for contributions to metabolic engineering, especially the industrial biotechnology of Clostridia, and to biomanufacturing of therapeutic proteins.” Clostridia are industrial organisms that Papoutsakis’ lab has worked on for many years to develop their industrial applications.

Delaware Membrane Protein Symposium: Monday, April 30, 2018

Membrane proteins are critical for cell-cell recognition, inter- and intracellular signaling, transmembrane transport and cell homeostasis, and are of great interest in understanding human disease and as drug targets. Join us at our 2018 Symposium for an opportunity to hear and speak to researchers in this field. Click here to for more information and register for this event.

FEB. 18-24: ENGINEERS WEEK: Events celebrate wonders of engineering

Feb. 5, 2018--The University of Delaware will join organizations across the country in celebrating National Engineers Week, Feb. 18-24. Engineers Week is aimed at expanding awareness about how engineering improves the world, from the clean drinking water we consume to the cars we drive. It’s also an opportunity for outreach to the next generation of engineers. This year’s theme is "Engineers: Inspiring Wonder."

STARVING LIVER CANCER: Researchers discover two-step process to thwart cancer cells

Feb. 1, 2018--Scientists at the University of Delaware and the University of Illinois at Chicago have found a new way to kill liver cancer cells and inhibit tumor growth. First, they silence a key cellular enzyme, and then they add a powerful drug. They describe their methods in a new paper published in Nature Communications.
