ChE Professor You-Yeon Won leads Purdue research team in solid tumor treatment

Dr. You-Yeon Won, Professor in the Davidson School of Chemical Engineering, is leading a team of Purdue researchers developing a novel concept for intratumoral chemo-radio combination therapy for locally advanced solid tumors. For some locally advanced tumors, chemoradiation is currently standard of care. This combination treatment can cause acute and long term toxicity that can limit its use in older patients or those with multiple medical comorbidities. Intratumoral chemotherapy has the potential to address the problem of systemic toxicity that conventional chemotherapy suffers, and may be a better strategy for treating certain locally advanced tumors.

ChE's Dr. Vivek Narsimhan, Purdue researchers use the power of math to improve food texture, consistency

Davidson School of Chemical Engineering Assistant Professor Vivek Narsimhan and a team of Purdue researchers have created a model that allows manufacturers to design a starch-based product with desirable texture and consistency. It can be used by food manufacturers to save time and capital through new design processes and by food ingredient companies to modify the physical characteristics of starch to achieve products of desirable textures.
