With its Mars Exploration Program, NASA has set its sights on landing a human on the red planet by the end of the 2030s. While that might seem far away, researchers like Josephine Allen, Ph.D., Genzyme Professor of Materials Science &… Read More
Inequality in science and engineering can have lasting impacts across race, gender and ethnicities that go unnoticed for decades – yet affect treatments and solutions used every day. Now, four faculty members in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering aim to shine a light on some of these knowledge gaps and help rectify the problems they create.
Representatives from a network of women deans, chairs and distinguished faculty in biomedical engineering are calling upon the National Institutes of Health and other funding agencies to address disparities in allocating support to Black researchers. The group made the call… Read More
In virtually any type of research, small changes in data can sometimes lead to major changes in results. Josephine Allen, Ph.D., associate professor and Genzyme Professor of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the University of Florida, and her team… Read More
UF MSE researchers have developed an injectable composite that spontaneously forms into nanofibers resembling the microscopic structure of the human body and could ultimately be custom designed for an infinite number of biomedical applications including connective-tissue repair, drug delivery, wound… Read More
