The University of Akron’s College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering (CPSPE) is the recipient of approximately $4 million in federal grants, coming at a time when university trustees have approved investments in “key areas of strength and opportunity.”

Dr. Andre Palmer of the Ohio State University has developed a polymerized hemoglobin he calls PolyHb that would give a critical patient enough time to get to the hospital for a blood transfusion.

A recent paper published by polymer scientist Saranshu Singla and his team at the University of Akron in Ohio described the findings of the team’s study of the glue manufacturing process of orb spiders.

An $8 million project that uses additive manufacturing to replace parts on aging Air Force aircraft includes approximately 25 universities, research institutions, military bases and private companies.

In an effort to better monitor head impacts in the area of sports, a team of doctors and scientists called Prevent Biometrics have developed a smart mouthguard that monitors the number, direction and force of head impacts through a flexible circuit board embedded within the guard. The circuit board is held in place by a proprietary thermoplastic polymer.

Polymer Solar Cells (PSCs) may not ever replace tradional inorganic solar cells because of such stumbling blocks as raw material expense, longevity issues and lower power conversion efficiency, but there are a myriad of other applications for the technology. From uses in grocery stores and kitchens to dissolving them for printing, the PSCs can prove useful in niche markets.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is now accepting proposals for its 2018 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) awards. The competitive program encourages domestic small businesses to engage in federally funded research and development opportunities that have the potential for commercialization. Applications for Phase I will be accepted through April 4, 2018.

Learn from Catalysis Additive Tooling about their disruptive technology that can lower your vacuum forming tooling costs and reduce your tooling production time.

Provisional counts compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicate that as of June 2017, Ohio was ranked 3rd in the United States at a count of 5,256 for most opiod overdose deaths. Only Florida at 5,604 deaths, and Pennsylvania at 5,392, had more. It is obvious by the numbers that Ohio is in an opiod crisis.
