All the latest news from CBE faculty and student researchers.


Hanguang Zhang and the Wu research group's recent finding on PGM-free cathode catalysts for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) was published in the 2017 Journal of The American Chemical Society (JACS)


Stelios Andreadis was awarded 1.2 million for a new R01 grant from the National Institute Of Aging (NIA) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)


With the help of UB researchers, the company has created what's believed to be the first liquid metal 3-D printer for manufacturing.


Researchers will tackle urban infrastructure and groundwater, air pollution, green infrastructure and stormwater management, and development of lower-cost solar cells.


New vehicle engines are more efficient, and engine exhaust temperatures are lower. Innovative catalysts are needed to control the engine pollutants


The Hachmann lab group aims to chart new paths in data-driven in silico research and a rational design paradigm.

Research in Professor Ed Furlani’s laboratory involves multiscale modeling for the development of innovative materials and devices with features that are engineered from the nano to macroscale.
The Pfeifer group will develop a hybrid gene and protein delivery device designed to tune a resulting immune response.

UB study yields neural crest cells from adult skin cells, and could lead to new treatments for Parkinson’s and other brain illnesses.


Representatives from UB and Buffalo Manufacturing Works will speak Thursday in downtown Buffalo.


A team led by a UB doctoral student took first place in UB’s Henry A. Panasci Jr. Technology Entrepreneurship Competition for a technology that generates hydrogen gas from water.


Andreadis was honored for his contributions to fields of stem cells, molecular bioengineering, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.


The applications could be vast — from dramatically extending the range of drones, to powering back-up generators for remote cell towers, to tiny hydrogen generating machines for cars that run on it.


The awards will support projects designed to boost economic development in Western New York.
