Forbes reports that a UB-led research project will explore whether nanotechnology and microbes can be combined to destroy PFAS, also known as “forever chemicals,” that pollute the environment.
The work is led by Diana Aga, Henry M. Woodburn Professor of Chemistry and includes three engineering faculty researchers: Nirupam Aich, PhD, and Ian Bradley, PhD, from the Department of Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering, and Carla Ng, PhD from Pitt’s Swanson School of Engineering. The study is funded by a $1.5 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences’ Superfund Research Program, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
