Goluch Wins $770K Grant

Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Edgar Goluch was awarded a $770K grant by the National Science Foundation to create a Nano-Constriction Device to automatically isolate and cultivate microbes in their own habitat. 

With the new device, Goluch and co-principal researcher Slava Epstein aim to develop a modern technique to cultivate microorganisms, featuring a growth chamber with a single sub-micrometer opening. During a conference at Northeastern University in a future date, guests will be trained to use the prototype devices and put them to the test.
