The Defense Threat Reduction Agency grant is intended to develop new skin-wearable systems that can rapidly and efficiently detect and remove chemical and biological agents. The project, led by Nano professors Joseph Wang and Liangfang Zhang, aims to provide better understanding of how chem-bio agents interact with skin tissues and builds upon recent advances...

 

For the second year in a row, Dr. Joseph Wang has been named a Highly-Cited Researcher by leading news organization Thomson Reuters due to the number of citations his work has received from fellow researchers. His peers have, in this way, identified his contributions as being among the most valuable and significant in his field. In further recognition of his...

Using hollow 5 micrometer-wide cones, the Wang and Esener labs have shown how ultrasound-triggered explosions can shoot drug-packed nanobullets deep into diseased tissue. 


A team led by Dr. Michael Heller has developed a new technology that uses an oscillating electric field to easily and quickly isolate drug-delivery nanoparticles from blood. The technology could serve as a tool to separate and recover nanoparticles from other complex fluids for medical, environmental, and industrial applications....

The Fellowship, which provides a $22,000 stipend to outstanding students in their last year of doctoral study, aims to help students focus on the final stages of their research and on writing their dissertations. For Savagatrup, the fellowship has also provided an opportunity to give back to younger researchers. He is currently mentoring two undergraduate students...

Moses Kodur, an undergraduate student in Nano Prof. Shirley Meng’s group, was awarded a prize for Best Presentation - Energy at the Gulf Coast Undergraduate Research Symposium at Rice University in 2015. Moses received the award from Prof. Meng.  His undergraduate research work focuses on synthesis and characterization of novel sodium ion battery...

MRS Graduate Student Awards are intended to honor and encourage graduate students whose academic achievements and current materials research display a high level of excellence and distinction. MRS seeks to recognize students of exceptional ability who show promise for significant future achievement in materials research. Mr. Dill received a cash award and a...
