Dr. Lee Awarded NSF Grant of $324,999 for Soft Materials Chemistry

The funded project, "RUI: Structural Determinants of Permeation and Nucleation at a Self-Assembled Interface," will support the investigations of Dr. Sunghee Lee, Board of Trustees Endowed Professor and Chair of Chemistry, and her active undergraduate research program for the period of September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2020.

Through this research program, Dr. Lee will work to secure a greater fundamental understanding of how living cells maintain their water balance essential to the sustenance of life, and will use the nature-inspired techniques discovered through this work to create tailor-made particles for a wide variety of uses in technology and industry.
