Designing, Adopting and Ensuring a “circular” Lifecycle for Plastics
The National Academy of Inventors has elected two University of Delaware researchers to status as fellows — Kelvin Lee (left) and Thomas H. Epps, III. Lee is the Gore Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UD and Institute Director for the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals (NIIMBL). Epps is the Allan and Myra Ferguson Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at UD with a joint appointment in Materials Science and Engineering.
After two years of exploratory research supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Wagner and STF Technologies, the company he co-founded with UD alum Rich Dombrowski, have invented an instrument that will give researchers a new perspective on what is happening at the surface where various things meet — air and water, for example, or oil and water, or in that biological context where cellular building blocks known as lipids meet biopharmaceuticals or other materials.
Three professors from the University of Delaware — Wendy Smith, Rodrigo Vargas and Yushan Yan — have been recognized as Highly Cited Researchers for 2021 by Clarivate, a global analytics company.
Recognizing that real-world need, award-winning UD Professor Arthi Jayaraman has created a collaborative, cross-disciplinary traineeship that will provide selected doctoral students from the University of Delaware and Delaware State University with the technical and professional training they need to thrive in their careers after graduation.
