U-M and Shanghai Jiao Tong University have chosen six research teams to win a share of $1.05 million in funding for renewable energy and biomedical technology projects in the second year of a joint program that teams up investigators from both schools.
The energy projects chosen aim to improve wind turbines and electric vehicle batteries and to better understand the combustion physics of biofuels. The health care technology efforts are geared toward enhancing treatment of neurological disorders and diagnosis of cancer, as well as exploring nanoparticle drug delivery systems.
“The joint program with SJTU is a model for the kinds of collaborations required to address the global challenges our society faces,” says Vice President for Research Stephen Forrest. “It brings complementary research strengths and perspectives to bear on these critical areas, and fosters the cooperation and mutual understanding that underlies realistic solutions.”
