Translation at INBT

Corporate participation at the INBT ensures that emerging technologies moves from laboratory to the marketplace, as well as provide a vehicle for open exchange between Hopkins researchers and students with their counterparts in industry. INBT seeks to work with established and newly-formed companies to transfer Hopkins-created technologies to market and provide Hopkins expertise to solve industry challenges. Learn more…

Summer of Science In Belgium

Every summer, five INBT students are immersed in biomedical research with experts from imec, a world-class microfabrication facility in Leuven, Belgium. The goal is to cultivate their perceptions of global challenges in STEM, learn how to collaborate with international partners, and develop their research skills. Follow their research and cultural journey through their own words in our student blogs.

Summer Seminar Series - Michael Tsapatsis @ Shaffer Hall, Room 2, JHU Homewood Campus

Zeolites are microporous framework silicates that are used widely in the chemical industry as heterogeneous acid catalysts, efficient ion exchangers, selective adsorbents for gas separations and as perm-selective dehydration membranes. They are also useful in other applications like water softening, as desiccants, and for adsorptive/catalytic treatment of automotive emissions. Zeolites have a wide range of compositions, and Dr. Tsapatsis’ will focus his talk on pure silica zeolites (zeosils) and high silica zeolites, i.e., zeolites with large ratio of silicon to substituents like Al, B, Ge, Sn, Ti that isomorphously replace silicon in the tetrahedral sites of the zeolite framework.

Michael Tsapatsis’ research group and collaborators have devoted more than two decades to study zeolite nucleation and crystal growth in efforts to create (i) nanometer-thin, oriented, and pinhole-free separation membranes, and (ii) hierarchical porous adsorbents and catalysts.
