Engineering professor develops on-demand drug delivery

July 28, 2021

Yoonjee Park, assistant professor of chemical engineering at University of Cincinnati's College of Engineering and Applied Science, developed a biodegradable drug delivery device that is activated by light, which would allow for on-demand dosing and fewer side effects for treatment of posterior eye diseases. With recent funding awards from the National Institute of Health and a Young Investigator Award from Ohio Lions Eye Research Foundation, Park and her research team are testing the safety and efficacy of the device. In 2019, she also participated in UC’s Venture Lab business pre-accelerator.

Virtual engineering class reimagines global collaboration

June 23, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a forced pause to the usual international travel experiences at the University of Cincinnati. In response to a call for innovative ideas for virtual global experiences, Cedrick Kwuimy, assistant professor-educator in UC’s Department of Engineering Education, devised a program to give first-year engineering students some of the same growth opportunities they would have with a study abroad or work abroad program. UC students collaborated virtually with students at University of Cape Coast in Ghana and at Bahir Dar University in Ethiopia
