Zeng’s ice repellent research could make ice removal a breeze
Prof. Xiao Zeng, with colleagues from China, discovered that ice grows differently on absorbent vs. water-repellent surfaces. His findings could greatly impact the burden of ice removal..
Berkowitz, colleagues, to research radiation exposure drugs
Professor David Berkowitz (UNL) and Professor Kenneth Bayles (UNMC) are working on a drug development pipeline concept that would build on strengths in fundamental science and biomedical research at the two campuses. This approach is being applied to a new project with the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute (AFRRI) that is directed at developing new therapeutics for acute radiation syndrome (ARS).
New technique eases production, customization of soft robotics
By helping rubber and plastic stick together under pressure, University of Nebraska-Lincoln chemist Prof. Morin's recent work on Advanced Materials have simplified the production of small fluid-carrying channels that can drive movement in soft robotics and enable chemical analyses on microscopic scales.
