Dr. Mujibur Khan, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Awarded $153,000 NSF Grant
The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a grant of $153,000 to Dr. Mujibur Khan, Assistant Professor of Mechanical Engineering. With this award, Dr. Khan will acquire state-of-the-art electrospinning equipment for cutting-edge research in nanofibers and nanotechnology. The equipment will be used in a wide variety of research projects: from generating new avenues for lightweight ultra-tough hybrid fibers, cancer therapeutics, biocompatible nanofibers and multifunctional materials; to developing antimicrobial coatings and compounds with extraordinary thermal, mechanical and biological properties. The acquisition of the electrospinning equipment will greatly enhance the capabilities of an emerging group of nanotechnology researchers at Georgia Southern University and throughout southeast Georgia.
