Unlocking the Secrets of Quantum Physics to Create New Materials

Major Grant From National Science Foundation Funds Dos Santos’ Study of Interacting Quantum Systems How can transitions between different states of matter—for instance, liquids, gasses and solids—be harnessed to create new kinds of matter for novel technologies? This is the focus of new research by Dr. Lea Ferreira dos Santos, professor of physics at Stern

Biophysicist Receives $300,000 Grant from National Science Foundation to Study Protein Phase Behavior

Dr. Neer Asherie, assistant professor of physics and biology at Yeshiva University, was recently awarded a $300,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to study protein phase behavior. The title of the grant, which will begin on September 1, 2009 and continue over three years, is “Understanding the Self-Assembly of Globular Proteins: Phase Behavior, Interactions, and Chirality.”
