For the first time, researchers see exactly how polymers interact with human cells when delivering medicines into the body.Researchers discover new way to deliver DNA-based therapies for diseases.
Associate Professor Sapna Sarupria is joining the Department of Chemistry faculty in Fall 2021. She is moving from the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Clemson University. Using state-of-the-art tools of molecular modeling, computer simulations, and statistical mechanics, Professor Sarupria's research focuses on surface-driven phenomena. Current projects include heterogeneous ice nucleation, protein adsorption on surfaces, and fouling on water purification membranes. Along with research, She is passionate about enhancing diversity, inclusion and equity in academia and more broadly in society. She has actively mentored students and faculty from various backgrounds and enjoys building bridges across different cultures. Professor Sarupria also loves teaching. Her favorite subject to teach is thermodynamics – she loves being able to communicate the beauty and power of thermodynamics in explaining the world around us.
