Post NILA Retreat


Although parking was not the greatest, the Post NILA Retreat left us inspired and ready to work hard for our chapters back home. Our guest speaker, Rosie, gave us some excellent tips on how to pitch a funding request to company representatives and on how to give a good presentation in front of an audience.

The introduction of the region’s website is something many of us have been waiting for. It will be a centralized location where any of our members can post their chapter news and read about what is happening all throughout our region. Take a look at the User’s Guide to learn how to use the site to add your chapter news and comments.

Let’s have another great year with our SHPE Famila!

  • Recombinant E. Coli As a biofactory for the biosynthesis of diverse nanomaterials May 23, 2018
    A metabolic research group has developed a recombinant E. coli strain that biosynthesizes 60 different nanomaterials covering 35 elements on the periodic table. Among the elements, the team could biosynthesize 33 novel nanomaterials for the first time, advancing the forward design of nanomaterials through the biosynthesis of various single and multi-elements.
  • Atomic-scale manufacturing now a reality May 23, 2018
    Scientists have applied a machine learning technique using artificial intelligence to perfect and automate atomic-scale manufacturing, something which has never been done before. The vastly greener, faster, smaller technology enabled by this development greatly reduces impact on the climate while still satisfying the insatiable demands of the information age.
  • Tunable diamond string may hold key to quantum memory May 22, 2018
    Researchers have engineered diamond strings that can be tuned to quiet a qubit's environment and improve memory from tens to several hundred nanoseconds, enough time to do many operations on a quantum chip.
  • Driverless cars change lanes more like humans do May 22, 2018
    Researchers will present a new lane-change algorithm that splits the difference. It allows for more aggressive lane changes than the simple models do but relies only on immediate information about other vehicles' directions and velocities to make decisions.
