Sensor detects toxins in drinking water sources

December 15, 2021

University of Cincinnati researchers have developed a sensor that detects toxins called microcystins from algal blooms that taint surface water such as rivers, lakes and streams. Early detection of these toxins can aid water treatment plants to adjust the treatment strategy to keep the dangerous substances from contaminating drinking water. The research is led by Dionysios Dionysiou, professor of environmental engineering, with his student, Vasileia Vogiazi, who recently earned her doctoral degree from UC in environmental engineering.

September 28, 2021

Andres Mata’s research for his University of Cincinnati master’s degree in chemical engineering could result in a greener fuel source. Mata, who was awarded Graduate Student Engineer of the Month from UC’s College of Engineering and Applied Science, was the lead graduate student working on a pilot project in Professor Mingming Lu’s lab to extract lipids from grease at wastewater treatment plants for biodiesel production.

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.
