Renewable Energy Program Pushes Novel Concepts Forward

Nanoengineers at the University of California, San Diego have developed a novel technology that can fabricate, in mere seconds, microscale three-dimensional [3D] structures.Read full article

Marc André Meyers was elected Corresponding Member of the Brazilian Academy of Sciences, in the domain of Engineering Sciences.  In the photo Marc Meyers is being congratulated by Dr. Marco Antonio Raupp,

Microscopically small submarines that can swim through our blood to clear out clogged arteries or destroy malignant tumors. This concept may sound utopian, but it isn’t. Various micro- and nanomachines have in fact already been developed.

Professor Joseph Wang will speak at the 5 p.m. ceremony at Central Michigan University's commencement on May 5th.  He will be receiving a Doctor of Science honorary degree at the ceremony.

The RACI Electrochemistry Division is delighted to announce that the 2012 Breyer Medalist is Professor Joseph Wang. Professor Wang will be presented with the medal and give a lecture at the forthcoming RACI Electrochemistry Division Meeting in Perth
