Krista Fruehauf published a scientific paper on targeted drug therapies using polymers. Drug delivery relies upon a few different methods, just like how people rely on different forms of transportation. Some are better for the planet or are faster means of crossing large areas. However, unlike the transportation we experience that

Ted recently published a paper in The Journal of Physical Chemistry B entitled “Molecular Dynamics Investigations of Dibutyl-phosphoric Acid– Parameterization and Dimerization.” It explores the interactions of molecules involved in re-claiming or recycling uranium and plutonium from spent nuclear fuel. These discoveries are important for reducing hazardous waste produced from
Quang published a paper entitled “Boiling Heat Transfer Performance of Three-dimensionally Ordered Microporous Copper with Modulate Pore Diameters.” The paper won a best paper award at an international conference. The paper looks at a material’s structure, like pore size and thickness, and determines how that affects how the surface boils
