Research Projects & Partnerships
Biomedical research at DSU, a collaborative and interdisciplinary endeavor, is primarily at the molecular, cellular and biochemical level and is focused on neuroscience, cancer biology and virology, biomedical imaging, and bioinformatics and computational biology.
MATERIAL SCIENCE AND RENEWABLE ENERGY
When molecular engineering and clever processing are synergistically coupled, it allows the chemist to tailor complex hybrid systems that intersect the fields of materials chemistry and renewable energy. This represents not only a new field of basic research but the development of novel advanced functional nanomaterials, which via their remarkable new properties and multifunctional nature, offer prospects for many new applications in the field of catalysis and nanotechnology.
- Center for Hydrogen Storage Research
- Center for Energy
COMPUTATIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND APPLICATIONS IN MATHEMATICS
Computational Intelligence is a growing field of interest at DSU. Recent work involves the development and analysis of algorithms, computational geometry, medical images, machine intelligence and video surveillance.
OPTICAL SCIENCE CENTER FOR APPLIED RESEARCH (OSCAR)
The main goal of OSCAR is to promote multidisciplinary research and education in optics and related fields of physics, chemistry, engineering, computer science, mathematics and biology.
- Center for Research and Education in Optical Sciences and Applications (CREOSA)
- Optics for Space Technology and Applied Research Center O*STAR (O*STAR Center)
RESEARCH FUNDING AND COLLABORATIONS
Faculty in CMNST have obtained research and educational funding through various agencies to support research projects and programs, establish centers and support student training. Developing partnerships with private and corporate sponsors, educational institutions, and federal and state agencies is central in establishing viable research programs.
