Dr. John Berberian Receives Major Grant from the National Science Foundation

Dr. John BerberianJohn Berberian (Chemistry) has been awarded a $302,228 grant from the National Science Foundation for his proposal entitled “The Study of Molecular Motion in Simple Glass Forming Liquids.” The objective of the proposed research is to further understand the forces involved in the amorphous-crystalline behavior of simple glass-forming materials above and near the glass transition temperature. Understanding the structure of glass-forming liquids can impact a number of areas (e.g., the drug industry, construction industry,  and the health industry) with the potential to increase the quality of life.
