Murthy’s Research featured in Langmuir Journal

November 4, 2009

Shashi Murthy, Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering, is featured in the American Chemical Society’s Langmuir journal for his efforts of trying to minimize/eliminate shunt occlusion in the treatment of hydrocephalus.

Prof. Shashi Murthy is an Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Northeastern University. He holds secondary appointments as Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Industrial Engineering and as Faculty Fellow in the Barnett Institute of Chemical & Biological Analysis at Northeastern University. In addition, Prof. Murthy is a Scientific Investigator at the Massachusetts General Hospital and the Shriners Hospital for Children in Boston. He is also Northeastern’s institutional representative at CIMIT, a consortium of hospitals and universities dedicated to the integration of medicine and innovative technology.

Prof. Murthy joined the Northeastern faculty in August 2005 following postdoctoral training under the guidance of Profs. Mehmet Toner and Martin Yarmush on the microfluidic separation of lymphocyte subpopulations. His doctoral work at MIT on vapor-deposited insulating coatings for neuroprosthetic devices was carried out under the direction of Prof. Karen Gleason.

Langmuir is an interdisciplinary journal publishing articles in the following subject categories: colloids, including surfactants and self-assembly, dispersions, emulsions, foams; interfaces, specifically adsorption, reactions, films, and forces; biological interfaces, such as biocolloids, biomolecular and biomimetic material; materials, including nano- and mesostructured materials, polymers, gels, and liquid crystals; electrochemistry, specifically interfacial charge transfer, charge transport, electrocatalysis, electrokinetic phenomena, and bioelectrochemistry; and devices and applications, including sensors, fluidics, patterning, catalysis, and photonic crystals.
