UTC Research Supported by NSF Grant

Dr. Elizabeth Guthrie is leading UTC's Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences research on the role of molecular reactions in sites that are contaminated with common pollutants including dyes, solvents and refinery waste.

Guthrie will receive $121,900 over three years for a new Environmental Molecular Science Institute centered at the Ohio State University, and funded by the National Science Foundation. Along with UTC, collaborative institutions include Princeton University, Boston college, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and Argonne National Laboratory.

The institute brings together researchers from fields such as chemistry, public health, civil and environmental engineering, geological sciences and chemical engineering.

The National Science Foundation has awarded $19 million over five years to scientists seeking to distinguish, at the molecular level, between natural and human-caused environmental processes.
