We congratulate Dr. Abby Jones and Dr. Mohamed Sharafeldin from our group on being awarded Ph. D. degrees recently. Abby is a Research Scientist at Jackson Labs in Maine, and Mohamed is Postdoctoral Fellow at Oxford University in the UK with Prof. Jason Davies.
Drs. Karteek, Spundana, and Rusling recently published findings on toxicity of E-cigarettes in ACS Sensors. The research was highlighted by UConn Today:
UConn Today turns a spotlight on Islam Mosa’s research on ultra-thin supercapacitors. This is a first step towards building cardiac pacemakers which harness the patient’s own power. This research was a collaboration between Rusling lab (Islam, Dr. Karteek, Dr. Gregory Bishop, Dr. Jim), Kumar lab (Dr. Ajith Pattammattel, Dr. CV Kumar), and Basu lab (Dr. Paritosh Pande, Dr. Ashis Basu) from Uconn Chemistry, Dr. Marc Novak from UConn Molecular and Cell Biology, and Kaner lab (Dr. Maher F. El-Kady, Dr. Richard Kaner) from UCLA.
Dr. Jim Rusling was selected as the 2014 winner of the Bioelectrochemistry Prize of ISE Division 2, in recognition of his research activities on thin biosystems for bioelectrochemical applications, direct electron transfer with proteins, bioelectrochemical catalysis, and detection of cancer biomarkers.
Our collaborative project with Dr. Dixon, Dr. Davis, Dr. Kay, Dr. Carello, and Dr. Frank of the Department of Psychology; Dr. Kinsella-Shaw in the Neag School of Education’s Department of Kinesiology; and Dilip Kondepudi, a chemist at Wake Forest University was highlighted in CLAS news.
Following publication of research, peanut allergy project was highlighted in Chemistry World (RSC). Congrats to the authors!
Detection of peanut allergy biomarkers using Surface Plasma Resonance spectroscopy (SPR) was covered by UConn Today! This project is in collaboration with Dr. Kumar and Dr. Peczuh at Department of Chemistry, University of Connecticut.
Electrochemical detection of protein biomarkers for Oral cancer detection was covered in C&E news, following publication of this research.
Our NIH/NIEHS sponsored protein biomarker detection project for early-stage cancer detection was covered by NBC news.
