A research team led by NanoEngineering professor Joseph Wang continues to advance wearable technology that can be beneficial in monitoring our health and behavior, especially for those managing chronic diseases.

NanoEngineering professor, Jesse Jokerst, is leading a project to develop a color-changing test strip that can be attached to masks and help detect the presence of COVID-19 through nanoparticles.

Nano-engineers in Professor Shyue Ping Ong's Research Group have published a paper showing they can accurately predict property of materials by taking advantage of low quality data.

A shout of congratulations to Director of Chemical Engineering and NanoEngineering Professor, Dr. Liangfang Zhang for being named a 2020 fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI). Induction into the NAI is the highest professional distinction given only to academic inventors. Dr.

A research team led by NanoEngineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz, has developed enhanced probes.

Congratulations to NanoEngineering professors, Dr. Shirley Meng and Dr. Joseph Wang, and Chemical Engineering Professor and Program Director, Dr.

NanoEngineering professor, Jon Pokorski, and the Institute for Materials Discovery and Design are working on two projects that have been funded by the US Department of Energy (DOE) as a part of their Plastics Innovation Challenge. These two projects will help improve existing recycling p

Congratulations to NanoEngineering professor, Dr. Joseph Wang who will receive the 2021 Talanta Medal. Dr. Wang is being recognized for his outstanding contributions and work in biosensors, nanobioelectronics, and analytical chemistry. 

A research team jointly led by NanoEngineering professors, Ping Liu and Shyue Ping Ong, have discovered a new anode material known as disordered rocksalt. This new anode material enables lithium-ion batteries to safely recharge within minutes for thousands of cycles. 

NanoEngineering professor, Nicole Steinmetz, and her Center for Nano-Immunoengineering have received a grant to work toward developing a new treatment for liver cancer by combining ablation with immunotherapy from a plant virus.
