The University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering announced today that it will lead and house a new $10.3 million Center for Spintronic Materials in Advanced Information Technologies (SMART) focused on novel materials for advanced computing systems over next four years.
The University of Minnesota has received $1 million over the next four years from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for fundamental quantum research that will help develop materials that could someday be used in quantum computing.
In new research published today, University of Minnesota researchers have found a natural product, called Fisetin, can reduce the level of damaged cells in the body, which can slow the aging process. Chemistry Professor Edgar Arriaga played a key role in the research.
The University of Minnesota has received a four-year, $5.3 million grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to lead an effort that could spark the next wave of U.S. semiconductor innovation and broaden the competitive field for circuit design.
