Biodegradable, unimolecular polymeric micelles possess several features that are attractive for drug delivery applications: Thermodynamic stability, ability to encapsulate and solubilize a hydrophobic guest molecule, biodegradability, as well as size and surface characteristics that prevent rapid clearance by the RES. Here we investigate the potential of(More)

A mathematical model with an exact solution is presented for the controlled release of a drug from a hybrid dispersed network-membrane based system. Both hollow fiber and flat membrane device geometries are considered. The reservoir is loaded with a drug dispersed in a liquid phase. This reservoir is bounded by a microporous membrane, the pores of which are(More)
A mathematical model with an exact solution is presented for the membrane-controlled release of small molecules such as nicotine, caffeine, and benzoic acid initially present in solution in the reservoir of the device. Both hollow fiber and flat membrane device geometries are considered. The reservoir is bounded by a microporous membrane, the pores of which(More)
Freshman engineering students at Rowan University are introduced to engineering design through a series of hands-on engineering and design projects. These incrementally progressive design experiences in the first semester lead the students to a single, in-depth, reverse engineering project in the second semester. Previous projects have included the(More)

The hallmark of the newly configured Rowan College of Engineering undergraduate program is multidisciplinary education with a laboratory emphasis. The development of a new multidisciplinary control laboratory upholds our hallmark very well. We attempt to address the demand of industry for acquiring control engineers (1) with a broad set of skills and a(More)
