Papoutsakis is the Eugene DuPont Chair of Chemical Engineering at the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Delaware, Newark; where he is also affiliated with the Delaware Biotechnology Institute. Election to the NAE is among the highest […]
Second-year undergrad Zachary Steinberg was studying chemical and biomolecular engineering.
David Gracias has received the Bessel award from the Humboldt Foundation in Germany. The award is named after the renowned astronomer, scientist and mathematician Friedrich Bessel. The award winners are selected based on their outstanding research record and expectations of future promise in continuing to produce cutting-edge achievements which will have a seminal influence on […]
The MARCC’s 22,000 processors save researchers money they would otherwise spend building their own computing centers.
Hasini Jayatilaka, a postdoctoral fellow in the Johns Hopkins Physical Sciences-Oncology Center, is featured on Academic Minute discussing a new insight into the way cancer behaves and what that means for future medications. Jayatilaka is an alumna of the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
Award honors students nationwide in business, bioengineering, computer science, and energy science programs.
IEEE Spectrum reports that Johns Hopkins engineers, in collaboration with researchers at MIT, have developed a “new approach to making graphene thermally responsive while preserving its intrinsic properties and its ultrathin and flexible nature.”
Researchers in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering have discovered a way to fold ultrathin materials, creating three-dimensional structures with significantly altered shapes and properties. Their Oct. 6 paper in Science Advances reports the process, which involves folding up hybrid films composed of an atomically thin monolayer of graphene functionalized by thermally responsive polymer […]
teaching faculty Johns Hopkins University’s Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is seeking a creative and motivated individual for a teaching track faculty position. The faculty member would contribute to the department’s undergraduate and graduate educational mission through teaching in the classroom and laboratory, course development, advising and mentoring. The faculty will also assist in the […]
Tactic could produce ‘smart’ medical devices that don’t rely on cumbersome wires, batteries, tethers.
The award recognizes outstanding early-career faculty researchers, and challenges them to examine the theoretical feasibility of ideas and approaches critical to making space travel, exploration, and science more effective, affordable, and sustainable.
Frederick Isadore Scott, Oct. 27, 1927 – July 15, 2017 In 1945, Frederick Scott used a nickel to make a phone call to the administration at Johns Hopkins University. “I called and said, ‘Do you let Negroes into your school?” Scott recalled in a 2004 interview. “And they said, ‘I don’t know, we […]
A team of researchers led by Johns Hopkins engineers create system that considers wide array of factors in one comprehensive aging assessment.
