A new publication by the Mirica Group and supported by NH BioMade describes an adapted experimental approach designed specifically for a household environment or low-resource laboratory to grow, activate, and use cyclodextrin-based MOFs for CO2 uptake. Yes, you can make a MOF at home!

Thriving Survey 2

Thriving Engineering Student?

Seeking thriving engineering students for a short, 15 minute survey! This follow-up survey is part of a research project at the University of New Hampshire that seeks to measure thriving which can inform universities to better support engineering students. The study is led by New Hampshire EPSCoR postdoc Dr. Julianna Gesun.

NH BioMade, a five-year $20 million EPSCoR project funded by the National Science Foundation, will advance the rapidly growing New Hampshire biomaterials industry through knowledge generation, academic-industrial research partnerships, and workforce development. Addressing opportunities identified in the 2016 NH University Research and Industry Plan, this new grant will be used to develop innovative approaches for design and manufacturing of biomaterials, such as those used in implants and tissue engineering, which hold the potential to save lives and improve overall quality of life for patients.
