POLYMER 'PENS': Epps, DuPont receive NSF funding to develop new approach to manufacture nanostructured arrays
Jun. 14, 2016--The University of Delaware’s Thomas H. Epps, III, and a collaborator Kai Qi from DuPont Performance Materials have received a grant from the National Science Foundation to investigate a new approach to the challenge of manufacturing small-scale structures that are cheaper, lighter and defect-free. Applications for the work range from generating master templates for digital information storage devices to developing patterns for portable biosensing arrays that could screen and treat a wide array of diseases.
Jun. 2, 2016--As the University of Delaware recognized more than 160 students who completed their doctoral studies at the Doctoral Hooding Convocation held May 27 on The Green, top prizes went to six students and one faculty member for exceptional achievements. UDaily provides this collection of Provost Domenico Grasso's remarks on each prize winner...
Jun. 2, 2016--Now, the collaborative work of four University of Delaware professors has given the valet an upgraded GPS and a turbo-charged engine, allowing for faster, more precise reactions that can be triggered by light or an enzyme and will have even more implications for medicine, engineering and other sciences. Their achievement is described in a newly published article in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
Jun. 2, 2016--Arup Chakraborty, who earned his doctoral degree in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware in 1988, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences in recognition of his "distinguished and continuing achievements in original research." Chakraborty is now the Robert T. Haslam Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he is also founding director of the Institute for Medical Engineering and Science. His entire career has been focused on research at the interface of the physical, life and engineering sciences. After a successful early career working on molecular engineering of catalysts and polymers, in 2000 he turned his attention to immunology.
