Since 2006, Case Western Reserve’s Polymer Envoys program has helped put a STEM career within reach for high school students in Greater Cleveland by providing mentorship, hands-on lab experience and intensive STEM curriculum.
The main goal of this proposal is to understand the fundamental mechanisms of electronic and thermal breakdowns in multilayer films (MLFs) and develop viable approaches to further enhance their breakdown strength and lifetime.
The vision of the proposed ERC is to establish a team of academic and industrial researchers to define, develop and deploy solutions to the most urgent problems associated with the global polymeric materials packaging industry.
There is a critical need to integrate computation modeling into nanomedical engineering approaches to provide a platform for the rational design of clinically effective nanomedicines. To address this need, the team will use computational modeling at the mesoscale to model and optimize blood floor and vascular wall adhesion of functionalized non-axisymmetric nanocarriers as a function of their size, shape, surface chemicstry and particle modulus.
