Workshop Abstracts - I' Annual Meeting 2014


2014 IPrime Mid-Year Workshops

IPrime announces three mid-year workshops January 14-16, 2014 on the University of Minnesota's East Bank campus. The sessions will feature a variety of stimulating topics on key research by academic and industrial experts. Registration closes Friday, January 10.


Amorphous Materials: Theory and Practice in Pharmaceuticals and Devices Workshop

Thursday, January 16, 2014
University of MN, Twin Cities East Bank Campus

This IPrime Mid-Year Workshop will offer internationally recognized leaders discussing the properties of amorphous materials above and below the glass transition temperature. Large molecules such as polymers, small molecules such as drugs, and combinations of the two will be covered. Bulk and interfacial properties of amorphous materials and solid amorphous dispersions will be emphasized, and the impact of these properties on industrial processes and product performance will be considered.


Future Trends in Microscopy Workshop

University of MN, Twin Cities East Bank Campus

This IPrime Mid-Year Workshop will introduce participants to the latest and near-future trends in high resolution (both spatial and temporal) microscopy. Some methods and instruments described are newly or soon to be available in our core facilities (CharFac and UIC). Some are cutting edge developments, not available in core facilities at this point, but harbingers of what is to come.


3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing Workshop

Tuesday, January 14, 2014
University of MN, Twin Cities East Bank Campus

FDM_by_Zureks.pngThis IPrime Mid-Year Workshop will identify fundamental research needs in the emerging areas of 3D printing and additive manufacturing. These needs may be related to the materials used, the processing of those materials, and the resulting products. Both industrial and academic perspectives will be presented.


How Do Coatings Respond to their Environment?

2013 IPrime Mid-Year Workshop, Tuesday, January 15
Presented by the Coatings Process Fundamentals (CPF) program. Coordinators: Program co-leaders Satish Kumar & Lorraine Francis.



Prediction of Biodegradable Materials Performance

2013 IPrime Mid-Year Workshop, Wednesday, January 16
Presented by the Biomaterials and Pharmaceutical Materials (BPM) program. Coordinator: Program leader Ron Siegel.
