This month, four UH Cullen College of Engineering professors earned a four-year grant amounting to almost $1.5 million from the National Science Foundation to pursue their nanopatterning discovery that could lead to next-generation transistors for integrated circuitry, among other advanced nanodevices.
A professor in the UH Cullen College of Engineering received the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Innovation Corps (I-Corps) award with a project titled “DotLens Smartphone Microscopy.” This grant will provide his team with seed funding and guidance to take one of their innovative ideas out of the laboratory and pursue commercialization.
In laboratories and research centers across the country, new inventions and discoveries are being made each and every day. However, very few of these ideas make it out of the laboratory and into the consumer marketplace. One program dedicated to translating more research into the marketplace is the National Science Foundation's (NSF) I-CORPS Program.
Oilfield-equipment manufacturer American Jereh International Corporation showed its support for the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering by granting scholarships to two engineering students for the current fall and upcoming spring semesters.
Thousands of visitors flocked to the Children’s Museum Houston last Saturday to play the top selling video game Minecraft while contributing to invaluable ongoing brain research at the UH Cullen College of Engineering.
A combination of nine university professors and industry professionals is joining the Cullen College of Engineering faculty at the University of Houston this semester. The majority are biomedical engineers with expertise ranging from brain-machine interfaces for control of prosthetic limbs to cell membrane research for diagnosis and treatment of diseases such as cancer.
Immunotherapy, a cancer treatment that utilizes the body’s own immune system to attack cancer cells, has garnered great interest as a relatively new field of medicine that offers an alternative to traditional chemotherapy.
Researchers have created a new method for screening cells used in immunotherapy cancer treatments, allowing high-performing immune system cells to be studied in isolation and potentially expanding the number of patients for whom the breakthrough treatment proves successful.
UH Cullen College of Engineering professors are known for offering undergraduate students unique opportunities to get involved in high-level research projects. One such opportunity is available through the National Science Foundation's REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) Program.
Engineering and computer science professions attract fewer women than other STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields in the United States. For more than a decade, professors at the UH Cullen College of Engineering have worked to change this longstanding tradition by hosting summer engineering camps strictly for girls.
