School of Engineering Awarded National Science Foundation Grant

Via Western New England University | March 1, 2010

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 the Western New England College 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 Western New England College faculty and students. “Our students will now be able to observe objects as small as 0.25 nanometers, 10,000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair,” said Dr. Judy Cezeaux, chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering. This will allow our students to view, for example, single molecules of DNA or the interaction of proteins with biomaterial surfaces,”

The Western New England College Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Industrial Engineering were awarded a grant of $125,000 from the National Science Foundation to develop multidisciplinary design projects that will assist individuals with disabilities.

Dr. Judy L. Cezeaux, chair and professor of biomedical engineering, will oversee the project. “This funding will provide financial support for the development of technologies that will directly impact the quality of life for individuals with disabilities across the New England region,” said Dr. Cezeaux.
