August 30, 2017 – The CHE Department held their annual Volleyball game. A wonderful way for our new Graduate Students to meet the current Graduate Students, Faculty & Staff in an informal setting over lunch and volleyball. With many minds keeping score, somehow Dr. Bothun’s team continued to win each match!
Researchers at the University of Rhode Island have received a $19 million federal grant to study how man-made and natural climate changes are affecting ecosystems in Narragansett Bay.
Daniel Roxbury, assistant professor of chemical engineering, is part of a national research team that has created a nanosensor capable of detecting the progression of obesity-related diseases.
Former chemical engineering student Brook Sandy-Smith will give a presentation at the Electronic Design Innovation Conference in September. She graduated from URI in 2005, when she also earned a bachelor’s degree in German, through the International Engineering Program.
The research that URI Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Daniel Roxbury is conducting could lead to the invention of a wearable device that could detect a wide range of biomarkers that signal the start of diseases such as cancer.
Geoffrey Bothun, professor and chair of the chemical engineering department at URI, will join other researchers in studying chemicals that could be contaminating drinking water and posing a human health hazard. The five-year, $8 million grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences will establish URI as part of a national network of Superfund Research […]
