What started as a small event in 2014 among Notre Dame’s community of soft matter and polymer researchers, has now grown into an annual regional symposium that includes faculty presentations and student posters from four universities.
Prakash Nallathamby has joined Notre Dame’s Center for Nano Science & Technology (NDnano) as a research assistant professor to facilitate the use of nanoparticle-enabled technologies in research labs across campus.
NDnano is hosting a one-day symposium on Thursday, March 30 entitled "Nanotechnology in the Treatment of Neurodegenerative Disorders." The keynote will be given by Kevin Tracey, M.D., President & CEO of the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research. Students are welcome and encouraged to attend the technical session and/or present their own related research in the afternoon poster session.
NDnano is now accepting applications for the Center's summer 2017 NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowship (NURF) program.
Kirstin Schauble, a senior studying electrical and computer engineering at Seattle University, won first place and $3,000 in the sixth annual NDConnect undergraduate research competition held at the University of Notre Dame on October 18.
Notre Dame’s third annual symposium on soft materials research was expanded this year to a two-university event. On October 8, nearly 70 faculty, postdoc and student researchers attended the first Notre Dame-Purdue Symposium on Soft Matter & Polymers at Notre Dame’s Eck Visitors Center.
“The symposium functions as a platform to share research between schools in Indiana, to network between research groups, and to seek opportunities for collaboration,” said event co-organizer Haifeng Gao, Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at Notre Dame. “We plan to include other nearby research universities in future events, such as the next one at Purdue University,” said event co-organizer Jianguo Mei, Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Purdue University.…
The Center for Nano Science and Technology at the University of Notre Dame (NDnano) will host the following finalists who have been selected for the sixth annual NDConnect undergraduate nanotechnology research competition:
- Joseph Burkhart, a senior studying chemistry at St. Olaf College. His research, conducted at Indiana University under the direction of Prof. Sara Skrabalak, is "Calculated packing-dependent optical behavior of Au octopods." …
A team of Notre Dame researchers from NDnano, AD&T, and Harper Cancer Research Institute have started to investigate the use of magnetoelectric nanoparticles (MENs) as carrier vehicles for targeted drug delivery in cancer treatment.
The MENs work, led by Dr. Tiffanie Stewart, builds on research published this year by her alma mater, Florida International University (Scientific Reports, 6:20867, DOI: 101038/srep20867…
Haifeng Gao, assistant professor in the department of chemistry and biochemistry, was honored with an NSF Early Career Development Award (CAREER) for his proposal entitled "Chain-growth Polymerization of AB2 Monomer to Produce Hyperbranched Polymers".
Wolfgang Porod has been invited to participate in the Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery and Exploration (INDEX) at the University of New York at Albany.
Notre Dame awarded one of 10 DARPA grants to advance new technologies to fill the gap in atomic-to-micrometer assembly methods that render nanoscale properties in macroscale structures.
The American Institute of Physics reports that a team of engineers from Cornell University, the University of Notre Dame, and the semiconductor company IQE has created gallium nitride (GaN) power diodes capable of serving as the building blocks for future GaN power switches.
Several science and engineering faculty affiliated with Notre Dame’s Center for Nano Science and Technology (NDnano) have full-time, 10-week research opportunities available for summer 2016. Applications will be accepted through February 5, 2016.
Fourteen student finalists from around the country competed in Notre Dame's fifth annual NDConnect undergraduate research contest. Students from Northwestern University, Hope College, and University of Nebraska took top honors.
Posters and presentations highlighted research on the synthesis, characterization, and applications of soft polymer materials on membrane separation, environmental remediation, cancer therapy, and advanced imaging and diagnostics.
