Nianqiang (Nick) Wu, the Armstrong/Siadat Endowed Professor in the Chemical Engineering Department, has been named to the “2020 Highly Cited Researchers” list. This coveted list, which serves as a “who’s who” of influential researchers, identifies scientists and social scientists who have demonstrated significant influence through publication of multiple papers, highly cited by their peers, during the last decade.

The University of Massachusetts Amherst ADVANCE Program has awarded a competitive collaborative research seed grant to Associate Professor Shelly Peyton of the Chemical Engineering Department and Assistant Professor Michelle Farkas of the Chemistry Department. Their ADVANCE research will develop a new tool for studying, stopping, and reversing the immunosuppression of the immune system in patients with cancer and other diseases.

As the public has seen during the testing of lifesaving COVID-19 vaccines, refrigeration is one key to their distribution. According to an article from the UMass News Office, Associate Professor Sarah Perry of the Chemical Engineering Department at UMass Amherst has teamed up with Caryn Heldt, director of the Health Research Institute at Michigan Technological University and professor of chemical engineering, to develop a method using proteins...

Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (MIE) Professor Stephen de Bruyn Kops and a team of multidisciplinary researchers from four international institutions were recently granted special supercomputer access by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DoE) Office of Science through its Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment (INCITE) program. de Bruyn Kops is the principal investigator on a project studying fluids and turbulence, which will be greatly enhanced by access to powerful supercomputers at Oak...

Professor Neil St. John Forbes of the Chemical Engineering Department will receive a Manning-Institute for Applied Life Sciences Award (IALS) from the UMass Applied Proof-of-Concept Seed Fund Program.

 

Professor Joseph Bardin (principal investigator) of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at UMass Amherst and College of Engineering and Dean Sanjay Raman (co-principal investigator) have received a $500,000 grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), administered by the Office of Naval Research.

Associate Professor Jae-Hwang Lee of the University of Massachusetts Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department and his graduate students currently have simultaneous cover articles appearing in two major scientific journals. One journal is the American Chemical Society’s Applied Nano Materials and the second is Soft Matter, published by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
