Rizia Bardhan made a fist with one hand then covered it with her other hand, like a baseball player catching a ball in the web of a fielder’s glove.
The fist represents a special nanocarrier filled with medicine, said the Iowa State University associate professor of chemical and biological engineering. The other hand represents a cell working out whether to catch that nanoparticle then take it, drugs and all, across its protective membrane into its interior.
A group of Iowa State researchers, led by Rodney Fox, CoMFRE executive director, is collaborating with Cargill and Genomatica to scale-up of fermentation processes. The award was announced this week at the White House Summit on the National Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Initiative.
Cyclone Engineers are collaborating with Cargill and Genomatica to scale-up fermentation processes in bioreactors in a new $2.5 million project. The award was announced this week at the White House Summit on the National Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Initiative.
Cyclone Engineers are joining forces in a $4 million project to make hydrogen fuel production more environmentally sustainable.
Launched in 2020, Iowa State University’s new major in environmental engineering has people at the heart of its early success.
Recognizing College of Engineering faculty and staff award winners, new named faculty positions, and patents received.
Axios Des Moines: “A soy-based asphalt technology discovered by accident last year at Iowa State University will be nationally available for commercial use next year.”
A multidisciplinary project at Iowa State University is harnessing engineering to solve agronomic challenges, enlisting undergraduates to develop an innovative research chamber to study soybeans’ responses in the field to current and future climate conditions.
Cyclone Engineering faculty will develop Team Science leadership skills in Iowa State’s Research Collaboration Cohort.
Ericsson today announced an agreement with the National Science Foundation-funded Platforms for Advanced Wireless Research (PAWR) program to supply Ericsson’s industry-leading and globally-deployed Radio Access Network (RAN), core, and services in support of the Agriculture and Rural Communities (ARA) testbed at Iowa State University (ISU).
The team will inject droplets into a flow chamber with a uniform turbulent field and take high-speed videos of the droplet as it is deformed and broken by turbulence. Different droplet sizes and fluid types will be filmed many times over to create a large body of videos that will be statistically analyzed to yield new insights on the droplet breakup process.
Michelle Soupir, professor of agricultural and biosystems engineering, leads a $1 million project to create a predictive model of antimicrobial resistance sources and transport through agricultural environments – and to assess which ag management practices will most effectively reduce AMR health risks.
