Shan Jiang, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, led a discovery that made the cover of Langmuir. Jiang and his team investigated how amphiphilic Janus particle assembly structures are influenced by the addition of surfactant molecules. The research offers principles and guidance for future applications in coatings, biomedication, sensors and disease diagnosis.
Shan Jiang, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, recently received an Early Concept Grant for Exploratory Research (EAGER), funded by a partnership between the National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the UK’s Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council. Jiang and his team will investigate methods of using CRISPR-Cas9, a sequence of DNA that is able to cut DNA strands to make edits, to create varieties in crops.
Shan Jiang, assistant professor of materials science and engineering, led a research group that discovered two variables that can be controlled to create certain types of polymers. The results appear on the cover of the March issue of the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science.
Shan Jiang, assistant professor of material science and engineering, led a research group that created a novel Janus nanocrystal platform to control nanoparticle self-assembly. Janus particles are fundamental new materials, and Jiang’s discovery opens opportunities in different areas including energy, drug delivery, disease diagnosis and therapy. The results appear on the cover of the March issue of Nano Letters.
Shan Jiang is an assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. He was recently awarded a 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award. There were 21 recipients out of more than 100 high-quality nominations from over 60 academic institutions across the United States. He was the only Iowa State University award recipient this year.
