Researchers with WSU’s Integrated Design and Construction Laboratory are exploring ways to make energy-efficient buildings more comfortable for those working in them.
A WSU chemical engineering student is one of eight students nationwide chosen to serve as a delegate for the American Chemical Society at a closely watched U.N. climate change meeting in Madrid, Spain.
The research has potential applications in medicine as well as for the detection of pesticides and food pathogens.
The research enables scientists to clearly locate tumor cells and track how cancer fighting drug regimens are performing.
Their work might point to a previously unknown way that bacteria may become resistant to life-saving antibiotics.
The research, which is being conducted at WSU Tri-Cities, has the potential of being used at contaminated sites around the world.
The work could lead to new applications for 3D printing as well as make better use of common waste materials that normally end up in landfills.
WSU researchers have been a key partner and recently joined in the opening celebration of what will eventually be the largest cross-laminated timber (CLT) facility in the U.S.
The commercial air carrier is investing $2 million to study the potential for a sustainable biofuel refinery in Washington state, where WSU researchers already have shown that wood waste can be converted into aviation fuel.
The casual meeting in September led to a $200,000 grant for two engineering faculty members studying clay surface properties.
