Rodent Implant Model

Our new paper entitled “Preclinical In-Vivo Evaluation and Screening of Zinc Based Degradable Metals for Endovascular Stents” has been published in the JOM journal. Roger Guillory, PhD candidate, and Prof. Jeremy Goldman from Biomedical Engineering led this project, in which … Read More »

Striders and Ants

Georgia published her paper entitled Water-Repellency of Hierarchical-Structured Legs of Water-Walking Striders and Fire Ants in Surface Innovations that summarizes her M.S. program. The following is the abstract of her publication: “Some insects have the ability to walk on water … Read More »

Bioabsorbable Stents Bioabsorbable Stents
We search for new biodegradable alloys that could revolutionize cardiovascular stent industry.
Antibacterial Materials Antibacterial Materials
We invented new inexpensive antibacterial material and explore its potential applications in water filtration, food packaging, and many others.
RHX Ceramic Dating RHX Ceramic Dating
We study the rates of rehydration and rehydroxylation processes for fired clay-based ceramics as a tool for dating ceramic archeological artifacts.
Smart Surfaces Smart Surfaces
We architecture nanostructures, nanotubes, and molecular layers to control wetting or other properties of surfaces.
Mineral and Materials Processing Mineral and Materials Processing
We have a long tradition of development and testing physical separation technologies for selective recovery of minerals from ores, plastics from waste, and cellulose fibers from wastepaper.
