Swetha Barkam, MSE PhD student, was selected on the ASM Board of Trustees as a student member.
Sudipta Seal's research on "Controlling the surface chemistry of cerium oxide nanoparticles for biological applications" was featured the cover of the Journal of Materials Chemistry B, issue 29, 2016.
A mini-symposium exploring collaboration opportunities between UCF and Mayo-Jacksonville will be held on Friday, May 13, 2016. Topics and speakers were selected by Mayo, and the symposium is an outgrowth of collaborations between Mayo scientists and UCF Professor Sudipta Seal, Director of NSTC, AMPAC, and Interim Chair of Material Sciences and Engineering. We hope that this symposium is just one step in developing more extensive collaborations with Mayo scientists and UCF science and engineering faculty, offering complementary expertise to their research staff. All interested faculty, staff and students are invited to participate.
