The work of Xun Guan, recently published at Nature Catalysis, is highlighted in the News & Views session of Nature Catalysis. Congrats to Xun! And we are grateful for the support and appreciation from the community!
Below is the figure from the News & Views of Nature Catalysis.
Chong has been selected to receive a 2022 Sloan Research Fellowship. Awarded annually since 1955, the Sloan Fellowships honor scholars in the U.S. and Canada whose creativity, leadership, and independent research achievements make them some of the most promising researchers working today.
We are grateful for the new support from NSF Division of Chemistry (CHE) that allows us to work on machine learning and electrochemistry with our collaborator Prof. Quanquan Gu at UCLA Computer Science! Stay tuned for our research progress in the future.
We are excited to be awarded the 2020 Scialog Collaborative Innovation Award! This project is in collaboration with UCLA postdoc alum Prof. Nanette Boyle‘s group at Colorado School of Mines, with the project title “Solar-augmented direct air capture of methane using methanotrophic bacteria”.
A collaborative team of the Liu group and Prof. Yujie Men’s group at UC Riverside has been awarded a 5-year R01 grant by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research program. We are excited to apply the interface between inorganic materials and microorganisms for environmental bioremediation!
The recent influx of research grants supporting the next 5 years enables the Liu lab to host additional postdoctoral researchers in the Liu group. The candidates are expected to have expertise in either of the two areas: (1) inorganic materials synthesis and electrochemical catalysis; (2) bio-based materials and microbiology.
Please contact Chong for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org
Last but not least, the Liu Group receives the NIH NIGMS R35 Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award (MIRA), titled as “Spatiotemporal control of concentration gradients with electrochemistry in extracellular space”. This is a 5-year project about our foray into the interface between electrochemistry and microbiology!
We are grateful for all the research support! Check out our exciting research progresses in the years to come!
The NSF Center for Integrated Catalysis is supported by the Centers for Chemical Innovation (CCI) program of the NSF Division of Chemistry. With a 3-year 1.8 M support, we aim to develop the fundamental chemistry needed to prepare synthetic plastics from pools of abundant feedstocks in a single reactor using spatially separated and temporally switchable catalysts. Looking forward to the exciting synergy that we have for chemical catalysis!
