Strong VPD Group Showing at 2016 Microscopy and Microanalysis ConferenceJuly 2016
Several members of the VPD group and NUANCE, including Professor Dravid himself, shared their research through several poster and oral presentations at this year’s Microscopy and Microanalysis conference in Colombus, Ohio! Dr. Jinsong Wu was also honored with the annual M&M Professional Staff Award for his research done in the past years on Co3O4-based battery anode nanomaterials. Congratulations to him and everyone who gave successful presentations!
