DOE EFRC Proposal Gets Funded:

June 19, 2014 - The Campbell Group is to get funding for 4 years along with others from U Minnesota, Northwestern U., Argonne Natl lab and PNNL. These groups will form the Energy Frontier Research Center, Inorganometallic Catalyst Design Center (ICDC) devoted to computationally guided discovery of a new class of energyscience- relevant catalytic materials and the underlying structure-function relationships that will guide further catalyst discovery.

 

DOE Grant Gets Funded:

Unofficial word received on June 12, 2014 that the group's renewal application to DOE Office of Basic Energy Sciences got funded. This is an individual-investigator grant (PI = CT Campbell) for three years of funding, entitled "Supported Metal Nanoparticles: Correlating Structure with Catalytic Function through Energetics".
