Juan Pablo and Nicole represented SRG at this year's Cambridge Science Festival, bringing our active research to the community.
Postdoctoral Fellow Nicole Iverson explaining with paper models how carbon nanotubes are made and functionalized to become single particle sensors
Postdoctoral Fellow Juan Pablo Giraldo shows with clay models the importance of defects in the lattice structure of nanoceria particles to act as free radical scavengers
Sayalee was nominated by members of the MIT community for this honor based on her contributions to the MIT community and the world at large. She was selected from over 140 nominations and will attend a reception to be held at the Microsoft NERD Center. Congratulations!
The work was featured in an MIT press release:
and in the Economist:
Markita, who built our total-internal-reflection (TIRF) microscope before even officially arriving as a post-doc in the group, was award an NSF post-doctoral fellowship covering three years of post-doctoral research.
Professor Strano was invited to discuss the implications of our thermopower waves project for future technology
Jingqing successfully defended her Ph.D. Thesis today, titled Molecular Recognition Using Nanotube-Adsorbed Polymer Complexes
The collaborative work with the Blankschtein group on modeling reactions with carbon nanotubes was discussed in a C&EN (Chemical & Engineering News) article on May 14, 2012.
Professor Strano received the Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum (NSEF) Award at this year's AIChE Annual Meeting. The NSEF works to bring researchers across fields together under the common interest of studying and taking advantage of materials at the molecular scale.
Nigel Reuel is one of only 6 recipients of the Pierce Antibodies scholarship
This scholarship is from Thermo Fisher Scientific for future science scholars as an opportunity to win $10,000 in scholarship funding for the 2012-2013 academic school year. This scholarship was created to help provide educational opportunities for the future generation of scientists. Graduate students or undergraduate students must be enrolled in an accredited college for the 2012 fall semester to qualify for this scholarship. A pre-selected committee will award two $10,000 scholarships and four $5,000 scholarships among the candidates.
