NIIMBL PROJECT FUNDING AVAILABLE: National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals makes first full project call

Dec. 19, 2017--The National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL), the Manufacturing USA institute headquartered at UD, is pleased to announce it has released its first full project call. Project Call 1.0 requests proposals that address technology and/or workforce development issues in biopharmaceutical manufacturing. NIIMBL fosters collaboration between industry, academia and federal agencies in developing innovative technologies to advance U.S. biopharmaceutical manufacturing. In addition to new technologies, NIIMBL also addresses workforce development issues and supports the development of standards that enable more efficient manufacturing capabilities.

THE EVOLUTION OF E. COLI: UD chemical engineers discover how some bacteria resist threats

Dec. 18, 2017--Bacteria are stealthy organisms. They can multiply in minutes and evolve to survive what we throw at them—including antibiotics. The World Health Organization calls antibiotic resistance "one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today." Each year, about 2 million people in the United States become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria, according to the Centers for Disease Control. These infections are difficult to treat and increasingly deadly. In the face of this threat, scientists want to figure out exactly how bacteria evolve.

FOCUSING ENERGY RESEARCH: UD scientists develop new theory to help improve catalysis research

Dec. 1, 2017--A new theory by researchers at the University of Delaware-led Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (CCEI) will help bring greater accuracy and focus to molecular science research, with the potential for far-reaching impact across multiple industries. The findings— reported by UD graduate student researchers Joshua Lansford and Alexander Mironenko with support from CCEI director Dionisios Vlachos—establish predictive capability for the behavior of molecules called adsorbates. Adsorption is a process by which molecules of gas, liquid or dissolved solids adhere to a surface, including metals such as iron, copper, nickel and titanium.

THE FUEL CELL AUTHORITY: UD’s Yushan Yan recognized for advances in energy technology

Dec. 1, 2017--Yushan Yan has received the Electrochemical Society (ECS) Energy Technology Division Research Award for 2018. Yan is a Distinguished Engineering Professor and Associate Dean for Research and Entrepreneurship in the University of Delaware’s College of Engineering. The Electrochemical Society advances electrochemical and solid state science and technology.
