Bubbles for Medicine

"I tell my children that I am working with bubbles and they think I have the best job in the world – which I do!" says Daeyeon Lee, Associate Professor of CBE. By learning how to modify the air and water interface, Lee is able to make "perfect" bubbles that have potential to enhance biomedical imaging and ultrasound therapy. Learn more!

Crystals That Can Switch Configurations

John Crockerís team has made a crystal that rearranges itself into a stronger, more stable configuration, all by changing the mix of DNA strands on the spheres' exterior.Check it out!
