Four students from the Cullen College of Engineering are among the winners of this year's University of Houston Graduate Research Showcase Virtual Poster Session.
Held on March 22, the event showcases the breadth and depth of groundbreaking research being undertaken by UH graduate students across disciplines, as well as to offer opportunities for cross-disciplinary networking. The Top 10 graduate student winners received a scholarship award.
Three graduate students from the Cullen College of Engineering have received scholarships from the Texas Center for Superconductivity at the University of Houston (TcSUH), as recognition for their work inside and outside of the classroom.
All three students received Cora Hawley Scholarships. According to the TcSUH, she established the scholarships to further the careers of exceptional students aligned with TcSUH research programs. The recipients for the 2021-22 academic year are:
Calling it a career pinnacle in some ways, University of Houston professor Richard Willson said he was extremely satisfied when he was notified that he was the recipient of the Alan S. Michaels Award in the Recovery of Biological Products for 2021 from the American Chemical Society Biochemical Technology Division.
Being from Canada, Professor Melanie Hazlett honestly hadn't heard much of the University of Houston before she began searching for graduate school opportunities. However, it was her mentor Professor William Epling that led her to Texas.
When a mosquito begins to nibble on you, it is not merely feeding on your blood, it is also injecting its saliva into your skin. If that saliva happens to be full of parasites carrying malaria or other diseases from its last victim, then most likely you will become infected, too.
The Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston and Dr. Joseph W. Tedesco, Ph.D., P.E., the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Endowed Chair and Dean, are pleased to share the 2020-21 Faculty and Student Excellence Award winners.

Cullen College of Engineering professor Stanko R. Brankovic, Ph.D., of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, is the corresponding author for a new, multi-department perspective paper on potential advancements in catalyst synthesis.
Aromatics are major building blocks of polymers, or plastics, that turn up as everything from PET bottles for water to breathable, wrinkle-resistant polyester clothing. These petrochemicals comprise a specialized, value-added sector of the energy industry. The process for refining crude oil into useful aromatic streams for derivative use often involves the usage of a catalyst to facilitate chemical reactions.
The Cullen College of Engineering is proud to announce that 21 undergraduate students have been selected for the University of Houston's Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF), according to the Honors College.

The stature of the Cullen College of Engineering has increased again, as it improved by its ranking by one in the latest edition of U.S. News & World Report, up to the No. 66 rated graduate engineering program in the country.
Cullen College of Engineering professor Jeffrey Rimer, Ph.D., has been selected as the newest Associate Editor for Crystal Growth & Design, a monthly peer-reviewed journal published by the American Chemical Society.
Her work as an undergraduate computational researcher, as well as a strong support system inside and outside of the University of Houston system, have allowed senior Rosa Miraldina Futy to excel in her studies, which includes being selected for an American Chemical Society Bridge Career & Professional Development Award.
A mutation that replaces a single amino acid in a potent tumor-suppressing protein turns it from saint to sinister. A new study by a coalition of Texas institutions shows why that is more damaging than previously known.
Six students from the Cullen College of Engineering at the University of Houston have been honored by the Great Minds in STEM organization as 2020 scholars, and been rewarded with scholarships.
