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.
Notre Dame faculty from Psychology and Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering have been awarded grants from the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI).
The Notre Dame Initiative for Global Development (NDIGD) and Professor Marya Lieberman have won a USAID Development Innovation Ventures award to improve global health.
Wolfgang Porod has been named the founding editor-in-chief of the new Open Access IEEE Nanotechnology Express (ENANO), a publication of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council.
Professors Ryan K. Roeder and Tracy Vargo-Gogola are combining their expertise in biomedical engineering and cancer biology, respectively, through the Harper Cancer Research Institute, a partnership between Notre Dame and the Indiana University School of Medicine-South Bend, to improve the accuracy of mammography for diagnosing breast cancer.

University of Notre Dame faculty members — Timothy Beers and Prashant Kamat from the College of Science and Bertrand Hochwald and J. Nicholas Laneman from the College of Engineering and — have been named to the Thomson Reuters’ list of Highly Cited Researchers for 2015. Hochwald, Beers, and Kamat were named in the 2014 list. All four faculty members have also appeared on previous years’ lists.
The University of Notre Dame has received $133.7 million in research funding for fiscal year 2015. This is an all-time record for the University and $20 million more than last year.
Mary Galvin, the William K. Warren Foundation Dean of the College of Science, sat down for a brief question-and-answer session about her experience, her passion for scientific research and her new role at the University of Notre Dame.
When asked what drew her to Notre Dame, Galvin is quick to answer: alignment with the University’s mission, and the chance to work with students again.
A paper written by a team of researchers from the Center for Low Energy Systems Technology (LEAST) and appearing in the August 7, 2015, edition of the journal Nature Communications shows promising options for the development of novel hybrid-phase-transition field–effect transistors (hyper-FETs) that offer high performance at room temperature using very low voltages.
Profs. Zorlutuna, Bernstein, Porod, Csaba, Lieberman, and Boerckel among those receiving research grants from ND's Advanced Diagnostics and Therapeutics (AD&T).
America Makes awarded grants to nine teams, with approximately $8 million in funding and $11 million in matching cost share for applied research and development projects in additive manufacturing. Notre Dame is heavily engaged in these efforts, with the University serving as the team lead on one of these projects and partner institution on another.
Anthony Hoffman among junior faculty named winners of the Early Career Development Award (CAREER) by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
