Research Stories

'Preforming' magic

Tsu-Wei Chou, Pierre S. du Pont Chair of Engineering at the University of Delaware, is part of an international team of researchers that is examining the feasibility of using additive manufacturing to produce 3D preforms.

Learning from leeches

In order to get a better grasp on the biodiversity of mammals in Sumatra, University of Delaware graduate student Sarah Weiskopf spent two weeks collecting leeches in Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park and conducting genetic analyses of their blood meals.

Topics include acid catalyst research, colloidal suspension and dispersion, and polymer research, among others. Additionally, an extended poster session will run from 2:30-4 p.m.

A continental breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. is included.

The event is organized by the Colburn Club, a graduate student organization for the department.
