Buckmaster: $1 million USDA grant to Purdue aims to boost efficiency at dairy farms

The collaboration began with an internal 2022 proposal that led to funding a project between faculty members in the College of Agriculture and the College of Engineering. The new project also extends the work of Matthew Rogers, who received a doctorate in agricultural and biological engineering from Purdue in 2022. Rogers used stereovision to measure the volume of granular agricultural materials.

Ristroph: Purdue engineer works to improve formulation of RNA-based pharmaceuticals

"We're concerned about the stability of the mRNA that's inside frozen or liquid formulations," Ristroph said. "mRNA is a very fragile molecule. It will tend to break down. You also want to make sure that your nanoparticles themselves stay stable. You need to be sure that what you're putting into somebody's arm is the same as what you manufactured in the first place."
