New computational research from a CBE team has shown that salt in highly supersaturated solutions first enters a semi-crystalline state before falling out as a true crystal, a finding that has implications for everything from climate models to the production of medicine.
Four students from chemical and biological engineering have been named to the Graduate Research Fellowship Program, an award from the National Science Foundation that helps fund those students' education and research for three years.
Professor Pablo Debenedetti will deliver the 2019 Keith E. Gubbins Lectures at North Carolina State University on March 18 and 19.
Consider the humble tire. Sitting outside on a frigid winter day, it’s hard as a stone, yet when spinning under a drag racer, a tire becomes warmly pliable. For everyday materials, from glass to rubber to plastic, these fundamental changes in behavior are determined by the glass transition temperature.
Fruit flies make for stingy mothers, imparting only a portion of the genetic building blocks their offspring need to survive. The rest must be produced by the fertilized egg in its first few steps of growth.
Graduate alumnus Dimitris Vlassopoulos has won the 2019 Bingham Medal from The Society of Rheology, the top distinction in the study of the flow of materials.
CBE professor Lynn Loo, director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, says the dangers of climate change are so pressing that it’s time for all hands on deck to decarbonize the U.S. and global economies. She praises the issue awareness behind legislation introduced in Congress to implement a “Green New Deal,” but stresses that...
For the second year in a row, chemical and biological engineering graduate student Katelyn Randazzo and lecturer C. Morris Smith were each recognized with an Excellence in Teaching Award, given by the joint undergraduate and graduate engineering councils.
A new method to combat antibiotic resistance; a way to use computer science to limit misinformation; and a plan to better understand the impacts of land use and climate change on flooding are among 19 projects awarded Innovation Research Grants this year through the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
Graduate alumna Jean W. Tom *93 has been elected into the National Academy of Engineering, considered one of the highest distinctions for engineers across disciplines.
