Meeting the challenges of technological innovation requires a meeting of minds from different fields. The leadership in two of Lehigh University's most renowned technology research centers, have aligned and are now working together.
Donald M. Smyth, an expert in defect chemistry of metal oxides and the first director of the Materials Research Center, and Joseph Goldstein, an expert in analytical electron microscopy and the founder of the Lehigh Microscopy School, has passed away.
Lehigh researchers won awards at TechConnect 2015. The awards were for a nanoscale device that captures tumor cells in the blood, a bioengineered enzyme that scrubs microbial biofilms, and an efficient chemical reagent that is stable at room temperature.
