Charlie worked with Leanne M. Gilbertson (University of Pittsburgh) and Julie B. Zimmerman (Yale University) to show the mechanisms of action in shape dependent behavior of CuO nanoparticles and their toxicological responses–link.
Prof. Posner was an associate professor at UW mechanical engineering department with an adjunct appointment at the chemical engineering department since he moved to UW from ASU. Now, he has joint appointments at the mechanical and chemical engineering department–link. Congrats!!
Congratulations to Charlie Corredor for defending his thesis and completing all requirements for his PhD.

Congratulations to team Vie Diagnostics for winning the 1st place grand prize and best innovation idea award at 2015 University of Washington Business Plan Competition! Maker of sexually transmitted disease test wins UW business plan competition UW team develops 10-minute test for STD checks
Charlie worked with Paul Westerhoff and David Speed to show toxicological characterization of nanoparticles in Chemical Mechanical Planarization (CMP) suspensions used in the Semiconductor Industry.
The catalytic properties of nanoparticles have been leveraged to develop a sensitive and simple colorimetric methodology for detection of metal and oxide nanoparticles in complex media. Image of assay’s reaction was selected as the cover image of the journal ES&T. This work was highlighted by NSF via twitter
A team led by Jonathan D. Posner, Bryan T. McMinn Endowed Associate Professor at UW, developed a colorimetric assay – similar to a swimming pool test kit – that tests for the presence or absence of nanoparticles in biological and environmental relevant samples with sufficient sensitivity as part per billion concentration levels.
