  Penn Researchers Establish Universal Signature Fundamental to How Glassy Materials Fail
  To find a link between seemingly disparate disordered materials, an interdisciplinary collaboration between researchers at Penn Engineering and Penn's School of Arts and Sciences with expertise in various materials studiedan unprecedented range of disordered solids with constituent particles ranginng from individual atoms to river rocks. Understanding materials failure on a fundamental level could pave the way for designing more shatter-resistant glasses or predicting geological phenomena like landslides.

  Penn Engineers Develop Filters That Use Nanoparticles to Prevent Slime Build-up
 
In a study led by Daeyeon Lee, Professor in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and Kathleen Stebe, Deputy Dean for Research and Richer & Elizabeth Goodwin Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, researchers Penn Engineering have found that a dense layer of silica nanoparticles can prevent the build up of slimy biofilms, which can block or contaminate the water flowing through these filters.

  Penn Researchers Demonstrate How to Control Liquid Crystal Patterns
 
In a paper co-led by Kathleen Stebe, Richer & Elizabeth Goodwin Professor, and Professor Daeyeon Lee, both in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, a team of researchers from Penn Engineering and Physics have demonstrated how to control liquid crystal patterns which could be useful in creating patchy colloids.

  Penn Engineers: Bone Marrow Transplant Stem Cells Can 'Swim' Upstream
 
Daniel Hammer, Alfred G. and Meta A. Ennis Professor in Bioengineering and in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, and postdoctoral researcher Alexander Buffone have shown that cells can "swim" upstream by anchoring themselves to blood-vessel walls. If that helps them reach their targets faster, stem cells could be engineered to behave that way more readily in the future.
