Grant given to study spider silk

October 20, 2017

     HALLOWEEN IS COMING SOON AND WHILE FOR MOST THAT IS WHEN SPIDER DECORATIONS COME OUT, THAT IS NOT THE CASE FOR ONE NDSU PROFESSOR.

AMANDA BROOKS IS AN ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF PHARMACEUTICAL SCIENCES AT NDSU AND HAS RECEIVED A BIG HONOR.

     THE NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION GAVE HER AND HER LAB 145 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO CONTINUE HER RESEARCH INTO SPIDER SILK.

     HER PROJECT IS TITLED EAGER: IMPROVING THE LENGTH AND CONSISTENCY OF A BIOMIMETIC SILK FIBER FOR INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS.

     ACCORDING TO BROOKS, THESE FIBERS COULD BE A TECHNOLOGICAL REVOLUTION, CAPABLE OF STOPPING A 747 AIRPLANE.
