Professor Nina Lin, and co-PIs, professors Andrew Allman and Maciek R. Antoniewicz, will be working on this project.
Three faculty members awarded a $1.5M DoE grant
Electron transfer discovery is a step toward viable grid-scale batteries
The liquid electrolytes in flow batteries provide a bridge to help carry electrons into electrodes, and that changes how chemical engineers think about efficiency.
Two awards grant more than 1.5 million hours on two of the world’s fastest supercomputers
Two awards—including a competitive U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science award—will power Michigan Engineering research by providing more than 1.5 million node hours combined on two of the world’s most powerful supercomputers. Sharon C. Glotzer, the Anthony C. Lembke Department Chair of Chemical Engineering, received a 2019 Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory […]
How Mcubed is helping derisk research investments
Two precursors for innovation are the ability to take risks and move quickly, but conventional research funding doesn’t offer that flexibility. A six-year-old program has radically changed the way new studies get funded at Michigan, and it’s now expanding to enable long-term investment in interdisciplinary collaboration. Together with Alec Gallimore, presently the Robert J. Vlasic […]
Glotzer, Larson receive prestigious American Physical Society prizes
Sharon C. Glotzer and Ronald G. Larson have received prestigious American Physical Society prizes. Glotzer, the Anthony C. Lembke Department Chair of Chemical Engineering, received the Aneesur Rahman Prize for outstanding achievement in computational physics research. Larson, the George Granger Brown Professor and A.H. White Distinguished University Professor of Chemical Engineering, received the Polymer Physics […]
Revealing the demise of native American dogs
Around 15,000 years ago, man’s best friend followed humans—most likely from Siberia—into North America, according to new findings from an international team of researchers. They discovered the true evolutionary history of American dogs, debunking the belief that the continent’s earliest dogs descended from North American wolves. But surprisingly, the dogs who roamed the Americas before […]
Teaming up to tackle melanoma recurrence with microfluidics
Heather Fairbairn, a second-year graduate research assistant working with Associate Professor Sunitha Nagrath, is developing a microfluidic technology that could revolutionize melanoma care and treatment. The incorporation of nano-materials into this device will provide a high-throughput and high-purity method for isolating and analyzing circulating tumor cells from whole blood. Through a collaboration with Dr. Scott […]
Mark Burns appointed to new research positions
In the new position, Mark will continue to lead the highly successful MCubed program that he co-founded. In addition, he will be developing other programs to provide additional mechanisms to fund collaborative faculty teams.
