Yuan Yang, Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering, and Nanfang Yu, Assistant Professor of Applied Physics, were featured in the article, "Columbia Engineering for Humanity" in the Fall 2017 edition of the SEAS Newsletter.
Prof. Oleg Gang is featured in the DOE Office of Science article, "No Assembly Required: Nanoparticles that Put Themselves Together. Gang, who is a Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science and Professor of Chemical Engineering, is also a researcher at the Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN), a DOE Office of Science user facility at Brookhaven National Laboratory. "Using DNA, we can instruct particles how to connect to each other. . . When scientists attach synthetic DNA to nanoparticles, the DNA strands pair up in the same way they do in every living thing, bringing the nanoparticles along."
