The Department of Energy (DOE) has highlighted a Cullen College professor on its Office of Science homepage. Megan Robertson, assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, has been featured as a Neutron Science User for her research with polymer micelles, specifically block copolymers, which have applications for drug delivery.

Robertson is a user at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where she has worked with the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences (CNMS) and the GP-SANS instrument at the High Flux Isotope Reactor. Information on Robertson’s UH lab is also included in her spotlight on the DOE website.
