The Spring 2013 issue of UCLA Engineer highlights the breadth of nanoscale research being conducted at three major multi-disciplinary centers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science; celebrates its newest member of the National Academy of Engineering, James C. Liao; and profiles the school’s start-up company accelerator, the Institute for Technology Advancement (ITA). Liao, chair of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Dept. and the Ralph M. Parsons Professor in Chemical Engineering, was recognized by NAE for “pioneering work on engineering microorganisms to produce fuels and chemicals.” ITA has incorporated eight companies based on technologies developed at the school, with more in the pipeline. Finally, this issue highlights research breakthroughs; introduces two new faculty members; and catches up with some notable alumni.
