UES scientists are blazing new paths assisting the Air Force in developing and applying biology and nanoscale technologies to Department of Defense and commercial applications. We have already contributed to advancing silk-based technologies, a better understanding of microbial contamination of materials, flexible materials development, sweat and water-based biological sensing approaches, functional additive manufacturing, high throughput biological analysis, and autonomous experimentation.
Our scientists have the opportunity to assist in the development and technology transfer of many new fields. For example, UES will introduce its own sensing technology into the water quality markets in FY 2017.
At UES, employees have the opportunity to conduct both basic and applied research, working with leading scientists in a very collaborative environment rich with instrumentation. The UES corporate environment is supportive of our employees and their families, and strives to help our scientists reach their goals.
In Biological and Nanoscale Technologies, our core capabilities include synthetic biology, biomaterials hybrid materials, flexible materials and devices, functional additive manufacturing, pathogen-cell interactions, cellular protection, the microbiome and real-time sensor development.
