An Goffin, senior lecturer and associate director of undergraduate studies, has left the department to move to Connecticut with her family. Sakul Ratanalert joined ChemBE as a full-time lecturer Aug. 1.
An interdepartmental team of Johns Hopkins engineers has received a $2 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to build and program tiny, soft robots. The robots are expected to respond autonomously to environmental and physiological cues, an important step toward building soft robots that could travel through human bodies or machines repairing infections or […]
A cell’s properties—the way it moves, its shape, its texture, and its stiffness—have an enormous impact on human development, the immune response, and the progression of cancer. But researchers studying those cell mechanics often wind up with different results from their colleagues’, leading to confusion and delaying potential breakthroughs in cancer treatment and immunotherapy.
Using a technique called micropatterning, scientists discover cellular tension and pressure are key factors in stem cell growth and behavior.
If you built the largest, most powerful computer currently feasible, it would have about the same number of transistors as there are synapses in the brain of a 3-year-old child. It would also be slightly larger than a tennis court, and consume 106 times the power needed by the preschooler’s brain. All of which means […]
Rayyan Gorashi (Gerecht Lab) and Ayon Mitra (Gracias Lab) travel to Belgium as part of the International Research Experience for Students Program, where they do collaborative research on microelectronics and nanoelectronics. Read more > >
They will work to produce a commercially viable exhaust-gas catalyst system that kicks in as soon as an engine is started.
The award was presented in recognition of Schmalzer’s long service to the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Johns Hopkins University.
ChemBE seniors and BFFs Ariana Sherman, Joan Golding, and Anna Garcia developed a fresh twist on the age-old problem of pimples in their Product Design class. Read about their work in The Hub.
Eugenia Volkova, PhD candidate in the Gerecht Lab, has been awarded an Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) Graduate Fellowship. Volkova studies how the physical properties of ECM-mimicking hydrogels contribute to changes in sarcoma cell migration phenotype. She is an INBT T32 Nanotechnology for Cancer Research Fellow. APL Graduate Fellowships are available to Johns Hopkins graduate students […]
Carmo Pereira, senior lecturer in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has been awarded the 2018 Catalysis Club of Philadelphia Award. This prestigious award recognizes an outstanding member of the catalysis community who has made significant scientific, technological, or organizational leadership contributions to the advancement of catalysis. Pereira, who joined the department in 2015, […]
A blood-clotting “super gel.” A mobile app for heart attack recovery. A pizza-delivering drone. A souped-up walker for pediatric ICU patients. Johns Hopkins engineering students have plenty to show off on Tuesday at the annual Design Day.
Schmidt Sciences Nascent Innovation Grants support projects that use data science and technology in innovative ways.
Rebecca Schulman, who joined the department in 2011, has been promoted to associate professor with tenure. The Schulman group designs intelligent materials and devices using techniques from DNA nanotechnology. The goal of the group is to understand how to build complex chemical systems for autonomous self-assembly, pattern formation, and detection and response. Major themes include […]
Natalia Majewska, second-year PhD candidate in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has won a 2018 National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. ChemBE doctoral candidates PJ Krohl and Josh DiGiacomo won honorable mentions, and alum Weitong Chen (BS ’15) was named a Fellow. Majewska, a member of Michael Betenbaugh’s lab, studies glycosylation in Chinese […]
