Department Chair Joseph Wang and Professor Liangfang Zhang have been recognized for their research in Micro/nanorobots for biomedicine.

Professor Oscar Vasquez Mena took part in the college outreach event "Comienza con sun Sueño,'' which stands for "It Begins with a dream." The event encourages first-generation, low-income students from bilingual families to pursue higher education.

Professor Shaochen Chen is leading the way in blood vessel research by using 3D printing. Using these unique homemade printers, Professor Chen’s Team has 3D printed a vasculature networking that can safely combine with a host network to circulate blood.

Congratulations to NanoEngineering Professor Darren Lipomi for being awarded the Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action and Diversity Award in Academic Affairs.

NanoEngineering Chair Dr. Joseph Wang and Dr. Liangfang Zhang lead a team of professors by introducing a novel approach for the neutralization of gastric acid.

Congratulations to NanoEngineering Professor Marc Meyers for being awarded the George E. Duvall Shock Compression Science Award. This prestigious award is being presented by APS Physics to promote serving a diverse and inclusive community of physicists worldwide.

 

A team of engineers led by NanoEngineering Chair Dr. Joseph Wang has developed a magnetic ink that can be used to make self-healing batteries, electrochemical sensors and wearable, textile-based electrical circuits.

Part of the NIH's "High Risk, High Reward" program, the award supports exceptionally creative, early-career investigators with innovative, high-impact projects. Dr.

Dr. Liangfang Zhang has been selected as one of the 10 most innovative young minds in science and engineering, chosen for Popular Science magazine's annual "Brilliant 10" list.

2014 Chemical Engineering PhD Graduate, Wei Gao, has been recognized as one of the 35 Innovators Under 35 for the Year 2016 by MIT Technology Review for his research in sweatbands that monitor your health. More information on Dr.
