WNEC Receives Grant from National Science Foundation

Abstract:
The Western New England College Department of Biomedical Engineering will soon feature a state-of-the-art biomaterials research laboratory, thanks to a $293,450 National Science Foundation grant. The funding was made possible through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The award will allow WNEC's School of Engineering to acquire new lab equipment to support biomedical-materials and mechanics research and educational activities. The two major pieces of equipment are a scanning probe microscope (atomic-force microscope) and an electrodynamic test instrument (mechanical-fatigue instrument). The scanning probe microscope will open the world of nanotechnology to WNEC faculty and students, according to Dr. Judy Cezeaux, chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Cezeaux added that the microscope will allow students to view, for example, single molecules of DNA or the interaction of proteins with biomaterial surfaces.
