November 12, 2018 - Wei Niu, associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, has received a three-year, $335,516 grant from the National Science Foundation to work on biocatalytic reduction of carboxylic acids.
October 25, 2018 - Michael Sealy, assistant professor of mechanical and materials engineering, is using cutting-edge 3D printers to build implants that can slowly dissolve in the body, which would negate the need for follow-up surgeries to remove such implants.
September 26, 2018 - Nebraska's MRSEC and Tuskegee University are partners in an NSF diversity-focused materials research grant that will also increase academic opportunities to underrepresented groups of students.
September 24, 2018 - On NET's "Consider This," Nebraska civil engineering faculty Daniel Linzell and Chungwook Sim are part of the panel discussing a new initiative that focuses on the management and monitoring of rural bridge health.
September 12, 2018 - Using a controlled-atmosphere system in a 3D hybrid printer, Michael Sealy and his team of Nebraska engineers are developing a process for manufacturing customized, dissolvable metal implants that can reduce risks and costs for surgical patients.
September 10, 2018 - Researchers know that growing stem cells takes a long time and creates expensive treatments. Nebraska Engineering's Yuguo Lei advises providing a cell culture setting that mimics the natural stem-cell niche as closely as possible to minimize cell stress.
September 10, 2018 - Aaron Ediger, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering, has received the Graduate Directed Energy Scholarship in High Energy Laser and High Power Microwave Technologies from the Directed Energy Professional Society (DEPS).
