Hamme wins NSF funds
Ashton Hamme, a Jackson State University associate professor, has won a three-year grant to teach the next generation of scientists while finding ways to use nanotechnology to detect water-born pathogens. The Clarion-Ledger reports the National Science Foundation awarded Hamme nearly $1 million for the project called JSU-RISE.
It will enlist faculty members from a number of sciences to work with undergraduate and graduate chemistry students to develop materials using carbon nanotubes. The aim is to quickly detect bacteria and other disease-causing organisms in water and possibly filter them out.
