  • 2021 University Research Week | Access to Clean Water Nov 11 2021 9:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    University Research Week
    Addressing a need that affects over the drinking water in North Carolina, as well as 1.8 billion people worldwide, the Sustainable Access to Clean Water Creativity Hub is pursuing the development of an innovative, affordable membrane-based water purification tool that can safely remove a broad range of water contaminants.

    The project team is comprised of polymer chemists, computational modelers, and engineers from the College of Arts & Sciences’ applied physical sciences and mathematics departments and the Gillings School of Global Public Health. Building on graphene and graphene oxide nanocomposite membrane technology developed by the Dingemans lab, the team aims to develop new filters that make water purification more energy efficient. The new technology will lay a foundation for large-scale, affordable membrane production and be used for a whole range of pollutants – including removal of heavy metals which can be extracted and then reused.

    Featured Speakers:
    - Theo Dingemans
    - Anna Fraser
    - Riley Vickers

  • 2021 University Research Week | READDI for the Next Pandemic Nov 10 2021 10:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    University Research Week
    Employing expertise from UNC’s School of Medicine, the Gillings School of Global Public Health, and the Eshelman School of Pharmacy, the Rapidly Emerging Antiviral Drug Development Initiative (READDI), an open-science, nonprofit drug research and development organization, is creating “self-stable” antiviral therapeutics for each of the main virus families. The therapeutics will be poised for rapid development against new pandemic viruses as they emerge.

    READDI is the evolution of an interdisciplinary research known as the Infectious Disease Discovery Program at UNC (ID3@UNC), which was awarded funding through the Creativity Hubs initiative in 2019. Having a team already in place allowed the group to respond nimbly and quickly to the coronavirus outbreak and identify more partners to help in the fight against it.
  • 2021 University Research Week | Obesity Hub Nov 10 2021 8:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    University Research Week
    Leveraging the strengths of Carolina’s schools of public health and medicine, its affiliated research centers and institutes, and its prowess in big data management, the Heterogeneity in Obesity Creativity Hub: Transdisciplinary Approaches for Precision Research and Treatment, a large, collaborative project with 27 faculty from 16 departments, six schools and five centers and institutes. The project focuses on understanding why two people who consume the same diets and exercise equally can have very different susceptibility to weight gain, with the aim of developing treatment approaches that go far beyond the “one-size-fits-all” approach that is so common.

    The Dynamics of Extreme Events, People, and Places (DEEPP) Hub brings together social and natural scientists, engineers, public policy researchers, and data analysts to investigate extreme weather events from all angles, including impacts on health and well-being, economic hardships, and environmental harm.
    Using satellite imagery, geophysical models, and survey data, the team hopes to document the short- and long-term impacts of flood events and how people recover from them to help North Carolinians and other coastal communities prepare for the coming decades — and the storms they’ll continue to face.

  • Well Read with Jill McCorkle Recorded: Sep 16 2020 61 mins
    University Libraries at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
    Jill McCorkle’s, '80, first two novels were released simultaneously when she was just out of college, and the New York Times called her “a born novelist.” Since then, she has published six novels and four collections of short stories, and her work has appeared in Best American Short Stories several times, as well as The Norton Anthology of Short Fiction.

    Five of her books have been New York Times Notable books, and her novel, “Life After Life,” was a New York Times bestseller. She has received the New England Booksellers Award, the John Dos Passos Prize for Excellence in Literature and the North Carolina Award for Literature. Jill has written for The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, Garden and Gun, The Atlantic and other publications.

    Moderated by Daniel Wallace, '08, J. Ross MacDonald Distinguished Professor / Director of Creative Writing, Jill will discuss her latest novel, “Hieroglyphics,” a mesmerizing story about the burden of secrets carried across generations. It is a novel fitting for our time, as Sylvia Brownrigg suggests in the New York Times Book Review, “A good novel can perform the same perception-bending trick as a lockdown: slowing time, throwing light on shadowed corners, reminding us of the interdependencies among us that we once took for granted.”
