University of Florida faculty and students will help advance the field of industrialized construction engineering with $2.5 million in strategic funding from the office of UF President Ben Sasse.
The Consortium for Nuclear Forensics, a UF-led team of 32 scientists and engineers at 16 universities, has been awarded a five-year, $26.4 million grant from the DOE’s National Nuclear Security Agency to develop new nuclear forensic technologies and to train the next generation of nuclear sleuths to use them.
The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering at the University of Florida will collaborate on a new Air Force Office of Scientific Research Center of Excellence focused on high-speed flight and morphing aerospace vehicles, which can change shape while in flight.
A joint project between the University of Florida and Synhelion, a global pioneer in the field of carbon-neutral solar fuels, has been awarded $2.7M from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO). The project aims to accelerate the large-scale development and deployment of concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) technology to produce green hydrogen for industrial decarbonization and electric power generation and storage.
The U.S. Department of Energy has announced $40 million in funding for 15 projects that will develop high-performance, energy efficient cooling solutions for data centers.
The NSF has selected a team of scientists from the University of Florida and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign to lead a $20 million institute to advance artificial intelligence to promote STEM education.
With the goal of creating a resilient supply chain for a sustained presence in space, researchers at the University of Florida (UF) are bioengineering microbes for experimentation on the International Space Station (ISS) they hope will reliably produce biopolymers, nutraceuticals, and antibiotics in variable gravity conditions.
Funded by a $4.5 million contract from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), UF researchers, including Roozbeh Tabrizian, Ph.D., principal investigator and associate professor and Alan Hastings Faculty Fellow in ECE, are leading the project to produce a microchip-sized tactical-grade clock that maintains accuracy on the magnitude of billionths of a second over time.
A team of scientists including researchers from UF were awarded a $2.5 million grant from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to support the development of new state-of-the-art water quality data and models to better predict and manage harmful algal blooms (HABs) in Lake Okeechobee and the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee River watersheds.
A multidisciplinary University of Florida research team, headed by Lakiesha Williams, Ph.D., will test what researchers hope will be a dural graft option less likely to succumb to structural compromise and harmful immunological outcomes.
