NIH Funding

Surface Innovations research team just got awarded with a two-year grant by the NIH – National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering. We will study the effects of surface finishing of biodegradable Zn alloys on their biocompatibility and biodegradation rate. … Read More »

Visit in China

Dr. Drelich was recently invited by Prof. Yuehua Hu to the Central South University in Changsha (China) and spent there one week at the beginning of December. He delivered three seminars on topics related to wetting phenomena on rough surfaces, … 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.
