CMMS-UMB Joint Dinner, May 2019

Following the annual “Current EM Techniques Workshop” at UMB, CMMS hosted a joint dinner followed by 2 excellent talks given by Dr. Rhonda Stroud (US Naval Research Laboratory, MAS President) and Dr. Jiwen Zheng (FDA/Center for Devices and Radiological Health).

Dr. Rhonda Stroud described her research on the isotopic composition of interplanetary dust particles and micrometeorites and how it aids our understanding of the primitive astromaterials in the early solar system.

Dr. Jiwen Zheng described how electron microscopy research at FDA is used for testing generic drug products and for evaluating medical devices such as the coatings on guidewires surrogates.
