Other than adding flavors and colors, it’s been nearly 50 years since a major advancement in the design of condoms. BU researchers may have changed that.
Engineers solve grand challenges by forming interdisciplinary centers
New device could make lumpectomies faster and more precise
Prof. Ryan uses computational models to improve the capacity of lithium and metal batteries by breaking up dendrite growth. Such potential improvements will help power green and personal technology.
BU was named one of the most innovative national universities for the first time in the 2019 US News & World Report Best Colleges rankings, out today. “I think there’s a general understanding that the world of higher education is changing rapidly,” says Gerald Fine (MSE, ME). “The leadership of the University has created an environment where experimentation in better ways to educate students is encouraged.”
Duan’s award will help fund his research into replicating cell-to-cell communication. He is one of the 35 YFA awardees this year and will receive close to $500,000 from DARPA over the next two years to pursue his project and he could receive an additional $500,000 based on the progress of the project.
A novel four-step process has been developed by researchers including Assistant Professor Tommaso Ranzani (ME) and Assistant Professor Sheila Russo (ME) to construct microfluidic origami for reconfigurable pneumatic/hydraulic (MORPH) systems. Their work, published in Advanced Materials, details the process and demonstrates its capabilities with the fabrication of a highly complex soft structure.
Only three percent of members become fellows and to be nominated and elected, a member must meet qualifications in at least one of nine categories; Zhang was chosen for her accomplishments in the research and education categories.
