Andrew Ferguson has received the Young Chemical Engineer of the Year Award-North America from the Institution of Chemical Engineers. The award is in recognition of his impressive work on thermodynamic modeling for the development of HIV vaccines.
A diverse group of researchers at the University of Illinois is making significant progress in using photocatalysis – absorbing sunlight in a semiconducting material to create charge carriers and a chemical reaction – making it a viable energy source.
A $300,000 grant from the Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust has made possible the purchase of a high-sensitivity live animal imaging system for the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The new system will primarily be used by campus researchers in the area of nanomedicine.
Researchers have demonstrated for the first time that ceramics could help advance thermophotovoltaics as well other areas of research, including energy harvesting from waste heat, high-temperature catalysis and electrochemical energy storage.
