An upcoming research project by a mechanical engineering faculty member will study the dynamic mechanical behavior of live cells which might someday be used to help treat cancer. Juan Ren, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, recently received a CAREER award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Ren was one of three ME researchers at …Continue reading “ME researcher examines mechanical behavior of cells”

Story originally published for Iowa State Daily by Katlyn Campbell A professor in chemical and biological engineering hopes one day to get her research FDA approved to help patients and improve lives. Surya Mallapragada earned her graduate degree from the India Institute of Technology Bombay, obtained her Ph.D. at Purdue University, had a short postdoc …Continue reading “Professor hopes research will help patients, improve lives”
While Juan Ren was growing up, she was surrounded by a family of teachers who kept a watchful eye over her studies. As she began working on her degree in engineering, she never planned on joining the family tradition in education until she served as a teaching assistant during her PhD program at Rutgers University.
The Roy J. Carver Charitable Trust of Muscatine has provided a pair of grants to Iowa State University totaling over $500,000. Ian Schneider, assistant professor of chemical and biological engineering, was awarded a $308,200 grant from the Carver Trust to research engineering complex environments for probing mechanisms of cell migration. Schneider is engineering tunable environments …Continue reading “Iowa State University recipient of Carver Trust Grants”
