- Distinguished Professor Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos, the Robert and Marcy Haber Endowed Professor in Energy Sustainability, delivered the 2019 Ensor Lecture at Washington State University, with a talk titled "The Changing Landscape of Heterogeneous Catalysts: Single Metal Atoms as Game‑Changers."
- ZwitterCo, a start-up founded by Tufts Gordon Institute and Civil and Environmental Engineering alumni, uses nanofilters to separate oil and grease from reusable water. The technique is based on Assistant Professor Ayse Asatekin's research.
- Distinguished Professor Maria Flytzani-Stephanopoulos, the Robert and Marcy Haber Endowed Professor in Energy Sustainability, received this year’s American Chemical Society Catalysis Lectureship for the Advancement of Catalytic Science with her Tufts colleague Charles Sykes, to be presented at the American Chemical Society national meeting in San Diego in August. The two faculty members received the honor for their work developing single-atom metal catalysts that could be significantly more efficient than those currently deployed in the production of goods such as fuel and plastics, the processing of food, and removing harmful gases in catalytic converters.

- A group of Tufts researchers from the Departments of Computer Science and Chemical and Biological Engineering were on a team that utilized PROXIMAL, a tool that predicts putative structural modifications, to use enzyme promiscuity as basis to predict hundreds of reactions and metabolites that may exist in E. coli but have not been documented in other databases.
- With colleagues from the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Assistant Professor Ayse Asatekin (pictured), the John A. and Dorothy M. Adams Faculty Development Assistant Professor, and postdoctoral scholar Ilin Sadeghi, EG18, created hydrophobic polymer blends and used electrospinning to fabricate them into nonwoven fibrous membranes, focusing on their thermal properties and structures.
- In a new blog post, chemical engineering doctoral candidate Ece Gulsan explains some stress-relieving yoga practices for students looking to unwind and refresh.
- The School of Engineering attracted 4,348 undergraduate applications, up from 4,062 last year.
- Tufts researchers including Associate Professor Matthew Panzer (pictured), Professor Sameer Sonkusale, and graduate students Huan Qin and Rachel Owyeung have developed highly stretchable, gelatin biopolymer-supported deep eutectic solvent (DES) gel electrolytes as a promising nonvolatile alternative to hydrogels for ionic skin applications.
