Sept. 2023:

We receive funding from the Comparative Medicine Institute and Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology & Science. This project, Strain Effects on Proteolysis of Extracellular Matrix in Biological Tissues, will provide an intuitive tool for investigating a potential protective mechanism in valvular tissue preventing extracellular matrix components from degradation.

August 2023:

Dr. Hsiao-Ying Shadow Huang is selected as a Faculty Fellow for External Awards in the Office for Faculty Excellence, NC State University.

July 2023:

We receive funding from the Data Science Academy. This project, Statistical Evaluation of Data-Driven Mechano-Electrochemistry of Lithium Batteries and Beyond Lithium, will be accompanied by a comparison of the use of statistical techniques in mechano-electrochemistry to inform critical lithium battery design choices and gleaning scientific insights.
