SUPPORTING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT: Delaware Bioscience CAT program fosters local collaborations, start-ups
Jan. 6, 2017--The Delaware Bioscience Center for Advanced Technology (Bioscience CAT) has awarded six new Applied Research Collaborations (ARC) or Entrepreneurial Proof of Concept (EPoC) grants. E. Terry Papoutsakis, Unidel Eugene du Pont Chair of Chemical Engineering at UD, is planning to use EPoC funds to develop a new hybrid technology to target stem cells for drug delivery so treatments can be more effective in smaller doses.
Dec. 16, 2016--Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker visited the University of Delaware today, where she announced a new institute to advance U.S. leadership in pharmaceutical manufacturing. The Newark-based National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL) will be the 11th Manufacturing USA Institute. The institute will focus on bringing safe drugs to market faster and on developing workforce training. The biopharmaceutical field has a negative unemployment rate, with more jobs available than there are qualified workers.
Dec. 8, 2016--Five of the University's world-class researchers, from different disciplines and bents of mind, converged Dec. 7 to share highlights of their work and the impact it is having around the world in a symposium called "Ideas That Dare To Change The World." Those in similar fields might know that about each other. Others might attend an interdisciplinary lecture if they can get away from their own work. But there is great power in hearing from an assembly of widely divergent experts about the real-life impact of their research and the potential future gains for families, communities and nations.
Nov. 21, 2016--Yushan Yan, Distinguished Engineering Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware, has been selected to receive the 2016 Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum Award from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). He is being honored for "breakthrough contributions to the development of nanoporous thin films and nanocatalysts for fuel cells." The award recognizes outstanding contributions to the advancement of nanoscale science and engineering in the field of chemical engineering through scholarship, education or service.
