Message From the Director

After making it through the challenges of the past year, CAMP remains a stalwart supporter of entities looking to develop advanced materials. We have continued to lend our expertise and resources to further exploration of areas requiring deeper understanding, such as PFAS contamination and remediation, and neurotransmitters in the brain. We are also hosting the 24th International Symposium on Chemical-Mechanical Planarization on August 16-19. I hope to see you there. 

— Devon Shipp, Director of CAMP, Professor of Chemistry & Biomolecular Science

Understanding the Brain

We all have one, and not a moment goes by when we aren’t using it. Yet for all our dependence on the brain, we don’t understand much of its workings. Funded by an NSF award, CAMP-affiliate Professor Silvana Andreescu is teaming up with Professor Stephanie Schuckers to develop biosensors that will shed more light on the brain’s neurotransmitters.
