More details can be found at http: Taslim's dissertation is supervised by Dr. October The work of recent Ph. Carla Lacerda was featured on the front cover of Tissue and Cell. In the work, Ali found that activated valvular cells in low-confluence cultures are rhomboidal whereas quiescent cells are spindle-shaped.
The methodology reported is the first non-destructive approach to detect valvular cell transformation. His research, which is supervised by Dr. Wei Li, focusses on isolation of circulating tumor cells from blood using nanostructured hollow glass microspheres.
It was great to see young and old alumni and many friends of the department. Thanks to all for a great evening! Jen is performing her dissertation under the guidance of Dr. Vanapalli using worms as a model system to determine the effects of exercise and nutrition on muscle mass and aging.
These twelve juniors and seniors are our best and brightest, demonstrating extraordinary competence in ChE, a committment to being a well-rounded scholar, and high integrity and stature.
Simon, received Travel Awards to attend the same meeting. Khatib, made the cover of ChemCatChem. Their article demonstrates how methane from natural gas can be upgraded directly into benzene and hydrogen.

Laird's research interests include large-scale nonlinear optimization and parallel scientific computing. Focus areas include chemical process systems, homeland security applications, and large-scale infectious disease spread.
Laird is the recipient of several research and teaching awards, including the prestigious Wilkinson Prize for Numerical Software and the IBM Bravo award for his work on IPOPT, a software library for solving nonlinear, nonconvex, large-scale continuous optimization problems.
Laird earned his Ph. The winner of the Directors' Award is: Adomaitis, and is slated to complete her degree in December of Curtisha spent two years teaching high school chemistry and general science in Newark, NJ prior to beginning graduate school at the University of Maryland where her research focuses on modeling the surface reactions, film growth, and reactor transport dynamics in atomic layer deposition processes. Upon obtaining her PhD, Curtisha hopes to first begin a career in industry that continues her emphasis on thin films.
During that time she hopes to partner with universities and local communities to build and sustain STEM pipeline programs for under-represented minority students, and perhaps transition back into academia at a later time. Arul Sundaramoorthy, James M. Evans, and Paul I. Sam Mannan, and Carl D.
