Amount Awarded (non-recurring)


Project Summary

The money will be used to purchase and augment a Spray Drying instrument and enhance current facilities to serve nanoscale manufacturing research and training needs in Central Florida that are not currently met. Interdisciplinary research is key to solving big challenges, and this facility will reinforce that message by providing tools that can be used across disciplines. The purchase will support research in the areas of engineering, planetary & space science, biomedical engineering and nano/micro-manufacturing. The tools will also augment the education and training of graduate and undergraduate students who already participate in several National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates programs housed at UCF.
