  • Creating a Brighter Tomorrow

    Whether we're creating sustainable jet fuel or improving the mental health of children, we develop solutions that have a positive impact on society. For example, professors Carissa Krane and Jeremy Erb are studying a treefrog's freeze tolerance to see if this process could be used for biomedical applications — such as better preserving tissue and organs for transplantation.
