Seeds for biotech and wireless industries were sown on the La Jolla campus decades ago --
Two new industries rose out of the academic hallways of the La Jolla campus.
Congratulations to Joshua Windmiller and Professor Joseph Wang's Nanobioelectronic Sensor team on winning the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Academic R&D award at the 2010 Printed Electronics USA conference and tradeshow for their work on textile-based printed bioelectronic sensors.
Joseph Wang, professor in the Department of Nanoengineering -- The use of nanomotors to power nanomachines and nanofactories is one of the most exciting challenges facing nanotechnology.
University of California, San Diego NanoEngineers won a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop the tools to manufacture biodegradable frames around which heart tissues – functional blood vessels included – will grow.
Two recent rankings have placed the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering among the world’ s top universities.
San Diego, CA, August 25, 2010 -- NanoEngineers at the University of California, San Diego are designing new types of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries that could be used in a variety of NASA space exploration projects – and in a wide range of transportation and consumer applications.
On July 26, 2010, Marc André Meyers received the Materials and Society Award at the Opera House (Municipal Theater) of Rio de Janeiro. The award was given by Prof. T. Massalski, Executive Secretary of the Acta Materialia Inc. Board of Governors.
The American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) announced the election of 55 new members of the College of Fellows. The newly elected Fellows were nominated and approved by current Fellows of the College, consisting of over 900 engineers and scientists.
