Octopus-inspired sucker transfers thin, delicate tissue grafts and biosensors

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Thin tissue grafts and flexible electronics have a host of applications for wound healing, regenerative medicine and biosensing. A new device inspired by an octopus’s sucker rapidly transfers delicate tissue or electronic sheets to the patient, overcoming a key barrier to clinical application, according to researchers at the University of Illinois at […]

Dinesh Kumar, 2020-21 PPG MRL Assistantship Awardee

“My Ph.D. research focuses on understanding the dynamic properties of vesicles and fluid-filled capsules using optical microscopy, automated flow control, and modeling. Such vesicle suspensions are encountered in several applications in our everyday lives, ranging from food products to pharmaceuticals and cosmetics. Moreover, capsules and vesicles are increasingly being used for advanced triggered release and […]

$20M NSF grant, new artificial intelligence institute for molecule synthesis

A team led by Steven L. Miller Chair professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering Huimin Zhao (BSD leader/CABBI/MMG) was awarded a five-year $20 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the NSF Artificial Intelligence (AI) Institute for Molecular Discovery, Synthetic Strategy and Manufacturing (Molecule Maker Lab Institute or MMLI). The multi-institutional team also […]

Hammack awarded Hoover Medal

Professor Hammack has been awarded the Hoover Medal. The award is named for its first recipient, U.S. President Herbert Hoover, who was an engineer by profession. Established in 1929 to honor “great, unselfish, nontechnical services by engineers to humanity,” the award is administered by a board representing five engineering organizations: the American Society of Mechanical […]

CHBE discontinues GRE requirement

Effective immediately, the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will no longer require the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) for admission to the graduate program.  CHBE has joined myriad institutions of higher learning across the United States who, over the past several years, have deemed the examination unreliable in […]

Congratulations to Marley Dewey for Placing Top Four in the Beckman Image Contest!

Graduate student category Marley Dewey, the Harley Research Lab This is a mineral and polymer galaxy. This specific polymer contains calcium phosphate mineral and was 3D printed in order to repair damaged bone. Dewey’s role involves taking these 3D-printed polymers and combining them with collagen-based biomaterials in order to regenerate large missing portions of bone […]
