Sustainable Biomaterials in the CNRE Magazine

Aug. 6, 2012 – In the CNRE Summer 2012 News Magazine.

The Cover Story in the Colleges’ latest issue of the CNRE News Magazine features the Department of Sustainable Biomaterials. Learn more about Professor Kevin Edgar’s work on polysaccharide delivery of anti-cancer drugs, Associate Professor Maren Roman’s work on nanoscale materials used in producing bone repair scaffolds, Assitant Professor of Practice Young Teck Kim’s work on food and pharmaceutical packaging systems, Professor Earl Kline’s work with the Wood Enterprise Institute, and Scott Renneckar’s work on converting biobased feedstocks to materials and composites. The department maintains its roots in wood science and forest products, and still produces the best graduates in the country in the field. But even as we deepen those roots, we have expanded into new areas over the past decade, to lead the way for new industries in the continually evolving field of sustainable biomateirals. See the entire newsmagazine on the web. And please let us know if you would like a printed copy!
