Leading the Way

Faculty members from the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences (CEPS) are leading a statewide research effort to advance biomaterials with the potential to save patient lives and improve overall quality of life as part of the five-year, $20 million NH BioMade grant.

The effort, officially titled the New Hampshire Center for Multiscale Modeling and Manufacturing of Biomaterials, is an EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) project funded by the National Science Foundation.

Dam problems, win-win solutions

The Future of Dams Project, supported in part by a $6 million, 4-year NSF EPSCoR grant and led by UNH, is a stakeholder-engaged, solutions-focused, interdisciplinary research initiative focused on the future of dams. As part of the New England Sustainability Consortium, collaborators in Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island are empowering stakeholders to make complex decisions about dams by combining the best available science with diverse forms of community engagement.

New Initiative Will Advance State’s Biomaterials Industry

DURHAM, N.H. –New Hampshire’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research, a program of the National Science Foundation (NSF), was recently awarded a $20 million federal grant to develop innovative approaches for the 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.

BioTech/MedTech Cluster: Workforce Development in Life Sciences Panel

The BioTech/MedTech Cluster, an initiative of the New Hampshire High Tech Council, will host a workforce-focused event at Keene State College’s Technology, Design and Safety Center on Tuesday, May 15 from 3 to 6 pm that will focus on workforce supply and demand in the life sciences industry.

2018 Drinking Water Source Protection Conference

Clean drinking water is vital to public health and the potential for future economic development. Even very small quantities of contaminating substances in lakes, rivers, or aquifers can limit their use as sources of clean drinking water. Local land use policy, open space planning, and conservation tailored to protecting these resources promote public health and ensure a long-term supply of clean drinking water.
