The winning projects in the latest round of annual grants through the U-M/SJTU Collaborative Research Programs for Energy and Biomedical Technology were focused on nanotechnology and data science.
Associate Professor Christian Lastoskie and Professor Junliang Zhang of SJTU are the principal investigators for one of the winning projects. Their project is titled, “Mesoporous Carbon-Based Polyanionic Nanocomposite Cathodes for Lithium Ion Batteries.”
Their goal is to develop novel and superior electrode materials for lithium ion batteries.
The U-M/SJTU program convenes research teams with complementary perspectives and areas of expertise to tackle challenges in energy and health, among other fields, that transcend national borders.
The program funds projects that have commercial potential and are likely to attract follow-on research funding from the U.S. and Chinese governments, as well as industry.
