NYSTAR Faculty Development Grant

New York State's Office of Science, Technology, and Academic Research (NYSTAR) has supported Clarkson / CAMP through its Faculty Development Program. An award from this program for $ 375,000 in matching funds over three years brings Professor Roshan Jachuck to CAMP. He and his team of researchers from the University of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in the UK will develop process intensification technology that has already brought many advances to the chemical processing industry. A spin-off company based on Professor Jachuck's research, proposed to be established in Potsdam in 2004, will produce process intensification units and provide process management expertise to the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics and imaging industries. He joined Clarkson in January 2004.

CAMP Collaborates with Kodak and Xerox

CAMP is involved with technology transfer projects with many other NY and non-NY State companies. Some examples with Kodak and Xerox are described briefly below. S.V. Babu is working with Kodak to develop slurries for several planarization applications and to develop special thin film technologies. Also Senior University Professor Richard Partch and members of his research group are collaborating with Kodak to develop colloidal materials for imaging and printing applications. The company allocated $200,000 over five years for a Graduate Fellowship in support of this research.
