Dimitrios Zarkadas, a doctoral candidate in chemical engineering at NJIT, received a graduate student research award from the Separations Division of the American Institute of Chemicals Engineers (AIChE) earlier this month at the organization's annual convention in  Austin, Texas. Kamalesh K. Sirkar, PhD, distinguished professor of chemical engineering, was also honored as Zarkadas' dissertation advisor. >>
In a fifth-floor laboratory at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT), research assistant Renee Cataneo is holding the day's collection of human exhalations sent to Menssana Research, based at NJIT.  Cataneo's job is to analyze the results.  Just as a Breathalyzer detects drunk drivers, a Menssana process detects illness. >>
Menssana Research, a tenant in the Enterprise Development Center, an incubator program at NJIT for young businesses, was named by the Wall Street Journal as the second runner-up in the biotechnology and medical category of the publication's annual technology innovation awards. >>
Treena Livingston Arinzeh, PhD, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) whose research has proven the potential of adult stem cell research to help patients suffering from spinal cord injuries and related diseases, will receive an Outstanding Women in Research Award from The New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research (NJABR), Union. >>
Treena Livingston Arinzeh, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at NJIT and a recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, received a letter of recognition from Congressman Donald M. Payne for her achievements in the field of adult stem cell research. >>
"Stem cell biology is one of the greatest revolutions in bio-medicine," Ira Black, MD, told 350 listeners at a forum on stem cell research held at NJIT on Oct. 18. Treena Livingston Arinzeh, PhD, NJIT assistant professor of biomedical engineering and a recent recipient of the 2003 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, described how her studies point the way to "off the shelf" therapies for broken bones and spinal cord injuries. Black and Arinzeh's presentation was the second in NJIT's new Technoogy and Society Forum Series. >>
A recent graduate and a current doctoral candidate in chemical engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) will receive graduate student research awards of $300 each from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE). The awards will be presented in early November at the organization's annual convention in Austin, Texas. >>
NJIT hosted students enrolled in the NASA Summer High School Apprenticeship Research Program (SHARP) in science and engineering, three of whom are working one-on-one with faculty in the Department of Mechanical Engineering this summer. The faculty mentors are: Dr. Edward L. Dreyzin, professor; Dr. Boris Khusid, associate professor; and Dr. Chao Zhu, associate professor.  >>
The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) will present next week the William Nordberg Medal for space science to Louis J. Lanzerotti, distinguished professor of physics at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).  Lanzerotti, a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the International Academy of Astronautics, is chairing the 20-person, blue-ribbon panel to study whether or not to prolong the mission of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST).  Lanzerotti is also a consulting physicist to Bell Laboratories-Lucent Technologies, Murray Hill. >>
The Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) will present the William Nordberg Medal for space science to Louis J. Lanzerotti, distinguished professor of physics at NJIT, on July 19, 2004. Lanzerotti, a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the International Academy of Astronautics, is chairing the 20-person, blue-ribbon panel to study whether or not to prolong the mission of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST). The Nordberg Medal is awarded to a scientist who has made a distinguished contribution to the application of space science in a field covered by COSPAR. >>
If you're interested in learning how to improve a golf swing, create a better baseball bat or combat sepsis, New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is the place to be.  More than 200 mathematicians and scientists will attend NJIT's first international research conference May 21-22.  The event will shed light on 40 unusual and important research activities such as the ones above.  Conference sponsors are NJIT's Department of Mathematical Sciences and the Center for Applied Mathematics and Statistics. >>
Trent Ward, a senior majoring in mechanical engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) recently won two awards for academic excellence and research. >>
Shawn Chester, a senior majoring in mechanical engineering at New Jersey Institute of technology (NJIT), has won three awards for academic excellence and research. Chester, 21, of North Caldwell, received the NJIT Alumni Association Student Recognition Award, given annually to a student whose research at NJIT shows great promise >>
