Colloid and Particle Science
|Anja Mueller, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, is assisting Timothy McAuley, a Ph.D. student in Chemistry, in performing research on biological fuel cells for use in wearable medical sensors. Using measurements obtained with an atomic force microscope, they are exploring the process of coating electrodes with enzymes.|
Clarkson’s expertise in colloid and particle science and engineering led to creation of the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP), the University’s preeminent powerhouse of research. A model of interdisciplinary collaboration, today CAMP’s leading-edge research includes health and environmental fields and the University is moving ahead in the exciting new realm of nanotechnology.
Funding of $7.25 million from the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation will enable Clarkson to maintain its leadership position by attracting and retaining scholars of the highest caliber through endowed chairs and endowed fellowships, including a chair in honor of Professor Emeritus Milton Kerker. Colloid Science is one of the key areas to be supported. Other uses include modernizing instrumentation and ongoing upgrades of laboratory facilities and equipment to maintain the state-of-the-art standards required for world-class achievements.
