Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2017: Grad Picnic at White Clay Creek State Park

This is an opportunity for everyone to meet & greet our new 2016 Chemical & Biomolecular grads attending in the Fall. Please RSVP for this event. This will ensure accurate head count for catering and transportation needs.


Aug. 2, 2017--The University of Delaware’s K. Eric Wommack, deputy dean in the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, will lead a research team from four universities that has received a $6 million grant to probe how viruses impact microbes critical to our lives, from producing oxygen to growing food. Also, UD’s Kelvin Lee, Gore Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, is a co-investigator on a $6.1 million research project, led by Clemson University, aimed at lowering drug manufacturing costs.

MILESTONE ANNIVERSARY: Chemical engineering’s Stan Sandler reaches 50-year mark as UD faculty member

July 10, 2017--Stan Sandler usually takes the steps to get to his second-floor office in the University of Delaware’s Colburn Lab. But today he’s taking the elevator because he’s hauling two black bags filled with heavy books — books that will be added to a growing pile destined to be shipped to developing countries including Nigeria and Ethiopia. It’s easy to accumulate a lot of books over the course of an academic career, especially one that spans half a century, and, even with 150 or 200 books already boxed up, the shelves in Sandler’s office are far from empty.

FACULTY SENATE: May meeting features faculty honors, presentations by provost and by outgoing Senate president

DUAL DOCTORAL PROGRAM: Agreement promotes collaboration with National Chung Hsing University in Taiwan

Apr. 28, 2017--On April 25, Fuh-Sheng Shieu, president of the National Chung Hsing University in Taiwan, visited the University of Delaware to sign an agreement for a cooperative program that encompasses teaching, research, consultation and faculty and student exchanges. The agreement is a renewal of one executed several years ago and has since been expanded through various supplemental agreements for specific programs, including the opportunity for students to earn doctoral degrees from both institutions in the areas of civil and environmental engineering and soil and environmental science.

DISCOVERY COULD TRANSFORM INDUSTRIES: Researchers invent process to make sustainable rubber, plastics

Apr. 24, 2017--Synthetic rubber and plastics – used for manufacturing tires, toys and myriad other products – are produced from butadiene, a molecule traditionally made from petroleum or natural gas. But those manmade materials could get a lot greener soon, thanks to the ingenuity of a team of scientists from three U.S. research universities. The scientific team –- from the University of Delaware, the University of Minnesota and the University of Massachusetts – has invented a process to make butadiene from renewable sources like trees, grasses and corn.
