Dr. Joseph Imbrogno and Dr. Brian Murray successfully defended their theses and will be attending graduation on May 28, 2016!!

Joseph Imbrogno, Brian Murray, Mirco Sorci, and Georges Belfort presented work at the 251st ACS National Meeting in San Diego, CA, March 13-17, 2016. They presented work on chiral membranes , peptide ligands binding to amyloid beta, hydrophobic brush membranes for desalination, the role of antimicrobial piscidins in membrane disruption, and an N-terminal hypothesis for Alzheimer's Disease.

Dr. Belfort's group held their annual Questar STEM visit with high school students from the area on November 23, 2015. The science and engineering behind polymeric membranes, proteins, and the nuclear pore complex were presented, followed by 3 hands-on demonstrations of these research projects. The visit was concluded with a quiz!

Jack Keating, Seth Pearson, and Georges Belfort presented work at the 2015 AIChE Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City, UT, November 8-13, 2015. They presented work on novel brush membranes for desalination, thiazoline ring formation, interfacial water interactions, chiral membranes, and anti-microbial peptides.

Dr. Georges Belfort, chair of the Managing Board of the Society of Biological Engineering (SBE), introduced Professor Wilfred Chang at the Daniel I. C. Wang Award Lecture and Professor Martin Fussenegger at the James E. Bailey Award Lecture on Monday and Tuesday, November 9 and 10, 2015, respectively.
