UTD Professor Wins $350,000 Grant from Zyvex Corp. For Research into Micro- and Nano-Scale Assembly
RICHARDSON, Texas (July 9, 2002) — An electrical engineering professor at The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) has received a $350,000 grant from Richardson-based molecular manufacturing firm Zyvex Corporation for research into assembling micro- and nano-scale devices.

Dr. Jeong-Bong Lee, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science, won a five-year contract from Zyvex to conduct the pioneering studies in his Micro/Nano Devices and Systems (MINDS) Laboratory at UTD.

The grant is part of a $25-million research award that Zyvex received last fall from the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Advanced Technology Program, which seeks to accelerate the development of innovative, emerging technology for broad national benefit through partnerships with the private sector.
