A FAMU-FSU College of Engineering researcher, collaborating with a colleague from Howard University, is investigating bacteria-related dynamics in one of two new projects supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The NSF has awarded over $1 million for two research grants for bacteria related investigations that have the potential to impact societal health by supporting new diagnosis and treatment methods for diseases. One award is through Florida A&M University (FAMU) and the other through Howard University, both historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in a multi-institutional partnership with the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.
Jamel Ali, Ph.D., a Howard alumnus, is an assistant professor in chemical and biomedical engineering at the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and is working with Patrick Ymele-Leki, interim-chair and associate professor in chemical engineering at Howard University. The research project aims to determine the role fluid flow has on the development and evolution of bacterial communities.
