Feeling groovy: Neurons integrate better with muscle grown on grooved platforms

Growing muscle tissue on grooved platforms helps neurons more effectively integrate with the muscle, a requirement for engineering muscle in the lab that responds and functions like muscle in the body, University of Illinois researchers found in a new study. Such engineered muscle with integrated nerves has applications in reconstructive and rehabilitative medicine, as well […]

School to celebrate St. Elmo Brady, first African American to receive PhD in Chemistry

The School of Chemical Sciences at Illinois is hosting a celebration of diversity in the fields of chemical sciences and chemical engineering with two public events on Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019. The American Chemical Society will designate a national historic chemical landmark for St. Elmo Brady, the first African-American to receive a Ph.D. in chemistry […]

Researchers gain control over soft-molecule synthesis

By gaining control over shape, size and composition during synthetic molecule assembly, researchers can begin to probe how these factors influence the function of soft materials. Finding these answers could help advance virology, drug delivery development and the creation of new materials. “We approached this new research concept not by trying to fix a problem, […]

Department welcomes new faculty members Baron Peters and Xiao Su

The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering is pleased to announce it has hired two new faculty members. Professors Xiao Su and Baron Peters both joined the department in January. Dr. Baron Peters, who joins the department as a full tenured professor, was most recently a professor of chemical engineering at the University of California, […]
