IIN researcher Mark Hersam, a Walter P. Murphy Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in Northwestern's McCormick School of Engineering, and his team are bringing computers closer to performing brain-like functions with a novel device called the "memtransistor."

Computer algorithms might be performing brain-like functions, such as facial recognition and language translation, but the computers themselves have yet to operate like brains.

In collaboration with Gatorade, Professor John Rogers' new wearable microfluidic device that assists athletes, military personnel and those in physical rehab heads out of his Northwestern Engineering lab and into widespread distribution.

The partnerships are aimed at further developing, testing and validating Rogers’ device, which monitors sweat loss and analyzes sweat chemistry with a simple, real-time visual readout.

Congratulations to Northwestern Professor Mercouri Kanatzidis, named the 2018 recipient of the Chemical Pioneer Award for his work redefining the fields of chalcogenide compounds.

Congratulations to Teri W. Odom, IIN Assoc. Director, and the Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Prof. of Chemistry at Northwestern, one of three recipients of the Research Corporation for Scientific Advancement's 2018 Cottrell Scholar Transformational Research and Excellence in Education (TREE) awards.

Big Ten Network article highlights Chad Mirkin and IIN research.

Why so glum, Harry? Is it because Northwestern University researchers have created a breakthrough technique for building "optically-active superlattices" that rivals your infamous cloak?

We're just going to let Harry and Ron think on this for a minute.

We're celebrating the International Day of Women and Girls in Science!

Let's begin by looking back on the life of Marie Skłodowska Curie: a Nobel Laureate who d...edicated her life to science.

She was a woman of many firsts: the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize, the first person to be awarded the Prize twice and still the only person to receive the Prize in two different scientific fields.

Congratulations to Northwestern Engineering's David Seidman. Professor Seidman was elected to the National Academy of Engineering, one of the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer.

The NAE selected Seidman for his contributions to understanding materials on the atomic scale, leading to advanced materials and processes.

Samantha Clarke, 2015 IIN Outstanding Researcher and graduate student in the laboratory of Professor Danna Freedman, was awarded a 2018 Ludo Frevel Crystallography Scholarship for her outstanding work with magneto-structural studies of novel magnetic materials at high pressure. Congratulations Samantha!

Join us tomorrow morning for the latest Frontiers in Nanotechnology Seminar.
