  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.

  Thirty Faculty Join Penn Engineering
  Penn Engineering is in the midst of its largest faculty expansion in history, adding 30 new faculty members in the span of two years. Vijay Kumar, Nemirovsky Family Dean, has made faculty expansion a priority since his appointment in July 2015. The effort is part of the Penn Engineering 2020 strategic plan, which aims to expand the size of the faculty body to 150, an increase of 33 percent, by the end of the decade.
