Research Highlights

An interdisciplinary team of UMass Amherst researchers, led by chemical engineering professor Wei Fan and chemistry professor Scott Auerbach, had their recently published article chosen as a “hot” article in the journal Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics. 

Electrical and computer engineering postdoctoral researcher Andrew McClung is one of several researchers who have created a gear-shaped photonic crystal microring that increases the strength of light-matter interactions without sacrificing optical quality. 

Sarah Perry and Shelly Peyton, both of chemical engineering, are co-principal investigators of a UMass research team that will spend the next three years developing a process that can deliver the quantity and quality of messenger RNA (mRNA) demanded by a new class of medicines.

Emily Hennessy, a transportation engineering PhD student in the Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department, has been awarded her second Dwight David Eisenhower Transportation Fellowship from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Hennessy will receive $10,000 from the program to support her research on “Assessing Equity through Accessibility” in pedestrian walkways.

Sandip Kundu is head of an international team of collaborators whose paper on analyzing fake news classification has been accepted for publication by the 16th Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers International Conference on Semantic Computing (IEEE ICSC).

A new summer undergraduate research experience at UMass Amherst will give ten undergraduate students training in how to create advanced materials and how to use these materials to tackle crucial challenges in biology.

A multi-institutional team led by Paul Siqueira (ECE) has been awarded a $4.5 million NASA contract to develop a sensing instrument capable of characterizing the depth and density of North American snowpack with unprecedented accuracy.

 

What if doctors could use a delivery system that acts in the manner of a Trojan Horse, which can travel directly into cancer cells, release cancer-killing drugs, and thereby treat currently untreatable cancers?
