SUNY Distinguished Professor, Stelios T. Andreadis was awarded $2.4M R01 grant from the National Heart and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health to investigate the role of the immune system in successful implantation of tissue engineered vascular grafts that were developed in his laboratory.
Associate Professor Haiqing Lin was elected board member of the North American Membrane Society (NAMS). NAMS is the only professional society in North America that promotes all aspects of membrane science and technology. The board of directors is the real heart of the Membrane Community, generally the most active members leading committees, initiatives, and steering strategic directions to promote membranes. Prof. Lin will serve the term of 2020-2023.
Stelios Andreadis, SUNY Distinguished Professor delivered a plenary lecture representing Division 15D/E (Engineering Fundamentals in Life Sciences) at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.
Assistant Professsor Elina Kyriakidou has received a $1.2 million grant from U.S. DOE-NREL for low temperature CH conversion by developing a novel after treatment system for future natural gas vehicles using palladium-based catalysts.
UB CBE Assistant Professor Johannes Hachmann has received an award from National Science Foundation with the "Spokes: MEDIUM: NORTHEAST: Collaborative: Advancing a Data-Driven Discovery and Rational Design Paradigm in Chemistry." project. The project aims to assert the role of big data research in the chemical domain, i.e., to promote, enable, and advance the ideas of data-driven discovery and rational design.
