ASTeCC Faculty Research Programs
Brad Anderson group / pharmaceutical sciences / 859.323.1263
Study of the barriers to anti-HIV drug delivery to the central nervous system and strategies to improve delivery. Experimental and computational studies of drug permeability across lipid bilayers and biomembranes. Preformulation studies, development of prototype formulations, and early in vivo assessment of new experimental drug candidates in conjunction with UK's Preclinical Drug Evaluation Facility.
Kimberly Ward Anderson group / chemical & materials engineering / 859.257.4815
Focus on cellular bioengineering, specifically how microorganisms can be prevented from adhering to surfaces, with applications for dairy processing, and how cancer cells can be prevented from moving from one organ to another in the human body.
Zhi Chen group / electrical & computer engineering and CeNSE / 859.257.2300, ext. 268
Focus on microelectric fabrication, novel semiconductor devices and materials, Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) transistor reliability, and microsensors.
Yang-Tse Cheng group / materials engineering / 859.323.4191
Conducting research on (1) high energy and power density lithium ion batteries and (2) alloys for biodegradable implants.
Lance DeLong group / solid state physics / 859.257.2300, ext. 282
Focus on the study of superconducting and magnetic behavior of solids at low temperatures, high magnetic fields and high pressures, including superconducting thin films with controlled patterns.
Eric Grulke group / chemical & materials engineering / 859.257.6097
Focus on polymer purification and separation, use of carbon fibers to absorb environmental pollutants, and oxidative stability of motor oils.
Todd Hastings group / electrical & computer engineering and CeNSE / 859.257.2300, ext. 292
Development of electronic and optical devices that exploit nanometer-scale features and dimensional control along with fabrication techniques that exhibit the required resolution and accuracy. Target applications include computation, communication, data storage, and sensing.
Bruce Hinds group / chemical & materials engineering and CeNSE / 859.257.5507
Focus on nanometer-scale lithography processes, the study of metal coordination compounds for electron-spin based molecular computing, semiconductor interface states, and selective surface functionalization.
Barbara Knutson group / chemical & materials engineering / 859.257.5715
Development of novel solvent systems with unique properties tailored by temperature, pressure and composition. These supercritical fluids may be used to sterilize the protein-based drugs of the future.
Bert Lynn group / chemistry / 859.257.2300, ext. 287
Use mass spectrometry to solve problems in biomedical and environmental research. Areas of investigation include proteomics (mass spectral analysis of proteins and protein digests by MALDI and LC/MS/MS), ion-molecule reactions for selective detection of environmental contaminants, and application and theory of quadrupole ion trap mass spectrometers.
Vijay Singh group / electrical & computer engineering and CeNSE / 859.257.3243
Focus on designing novel thin-film devices with specific interest in organic solar cells, SrS: Cu (blue emitting) and ZnS: Mn (yellow emitting) flat panel display devices, nano-porous metal oxide films, and smart oxides whose properties can be tuned by field or light.
Tian-xiang Xiang group / pharmaceutical sciences/ 859.257.2300 ext. 261
Focus on the experimental and computational studies of drug transport across model biological membranes and protein/peptide drug stability in amorphous solids.
