  4. Creating Sustainable, Designer Domestic Rubber

    Feb 14, 2022

    Congratulations to Dr. Carin Helfer (PI) and Dr. Catrina Kornish (co-PI) who won a CFAES IGPaward of $50,000 for their proposal titled “Creating Sustainable, Designer Domestic Rubber”.The goal of this research proposal is to determine if genetic modifications made to guayule that resulted in changes in both macromolecular structure and physical properties will transfer to rubber dandelion and lead to similar changes in rubber macromolecular structure and performance.

  5. Dr Kristof Molnar and Dr. Judit Puskas will be attending the ACS Spring meeting (March 20-26, San Diego, CA).
