As the title suggests, that was my hopeful outcome from hosting numerous pizza lunches for CEPS graduate students in various departments over the last month. My objective was to make graduate students aware of our office, the services and resources that we provide, and to stress that we’re not here just to serve the faculty and staff – we want to work with graduate students too!
Erin Bell, associate professor of civil engineering, works to develop the tools needed to monitor the “health” of bridges. Learn more about her work, which includes using information collected through structural health monitoring and intelligent transportation systems to create a model updating program for highway bridge decision-making and management, in this Research Profile: Erin Bell, Bridge Doctor.
DURHAM, N.H. – Research from the University of New Hampshire’s chemistry department has resulted in an exclusive license agreement for an anti-fatigue hydrogel between the university and Wakup, Inc., UNH’s sixth startup company.
I review many of the published research or research-focused press releases and news articles coming from UNH. As a publicly funded state institution, I recognize that publishing research and disseminating information is not only the faculty’s highest concerns, but also UNH’s top priority. However, commercializing UNH’s innovations is an integral part of the University’s long-term mission.
