Dean Lim

Greetings! I am pleased to introduce W.E.B. News, the college's bimonthly electronic newsletter. W.E.B. News, short for the college's recently developed sub-brand of "We Engineer Better," highlights just a few of the many recent updates and successes involving CEAS faculty, students and alumni. As you read through W.E.B. News, I know you will share the pride I feel in seeing the important contributions we are making to the world of engineering and technology that impact the lives of all of us. Additional news stories are posted at our redesigned website: I invite you to follow us on Twitter @uc_ceas and Facebook.
    On behalf of the students, faculty and staff of CEAS, I wish you and your family a warm and happy holiday season!

Lim, Interim Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, upon receiving the 2012 P&G Connect+Develop Public/Private Partnership Award from Bob McDonald, Chairman, President and CEO of P&G, announced a new "5 plus 5 over 5" partnership which includes a grant from P&G totaling $5 million over 5 years.

Microfluidic Breakthroughs Offer New Options for Ease and Accuracy in Extraction of Rare Cells or Separating Blood

Using something called "inertial microfluidics," University of Cincinnati researchers are able to continuously and selectively collect rare cells, such as circulating tumor cells, based on their size vs. other biomarkers. This could reduce analysis time and increase selectivity while reducing reliance on antibody-based testing in clinical tests.

This image shows the size-dependent extraction of particles. The fluorescent image indicates trapping of larger particles while smaller particles pass through.

UC Research Brings Us Step Closer to Rollable, Foldable e-Devices

Research from the University of Cincinnati brings industry and consumers closer to several improvements in e-Readers and tablets, including a simpler and more colorful way to make rollable and foldable devices. Some day, you may be able to fold up your iPad and put it in your pocket.
