As 3-D printing grows, so does need to reclaim plastic waste

With more than 100 3-D printers on campus, at least 600 pounds of plastic trash is generated each year. Undergraduates Nicole Panditi, a mechanical engineering senior, and Scott Silva, a CNR junior, have a solution.

  • New NASA teams will make human Mars missions light and efficient

    2/17/2017 New Scientist - For a crewed mission into deep space, every piece of technology and equipment has to be better: lighter, stronger, multi-purpose. NASA just funded two new teams of researchers, one led by Berkeley bioengineering professor Adam Arkin, to work toward that goal.

  • Kumar lab sheds new light on cellular stress fiber networks

    2/17/2017 - New research from Professor Sanjay Kumar’s lab, led by bioengineering PhD student Elena Kassianidou, uncovers fundamental design principles of how cells and tissues define and maintain their structure, combining sophisticated micropatterning technologies to engineer cell shape, laser nanosurgery to cut individual stress fibers with light and probe their internal structure, and mathematical modeling.

  • 3 professors named to National Academy of Engineering

    2/13/2017 - Three professors from Berkeley Engineering have been elected to membership in the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.

  • CZ Biohub awards nearly $14.5 million to Berkeley researchers

    2/8/2017 - Thirteen UC Berkeley faculty, including 8 from EECS and bioengineering, are among 47 new investigators chosen by the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub to receive up to $1.5 million each over the next five years to conduct cutting-edge biomedical research — with no strings attached.
