Prof. Neimark receives a $50K award from Colgate-Palmolive

Prof. Neimark has received a $50,000 research award from Colgate-Palmolive titled "Coarse-grained Modeling of Surfactant and Amino Acid Adsorption on Dental Biofilms".

The aim of this industrial project under the Master Services Agreement between Colgate-Palmolive Company and Rutgers is to explore using mesoscale simulations the mechanisms of surfactant and amino acid adsorption on dental biofilms. The success of this project may inform the experimentalists in their search for health care formulations with improved properties.

The period of the project is for 1 year.
