Prof. John Warner, director of the Center for Green Chemistry at UML, has been awarded $100,000 from the University of Massachusetts President’s 2006 Science and Technology Initiatives Fund.

President Jack M. Wilson announced a total of $1.1 million in awards to eight new projects; this is the third year of the Fund awards. Projects supported in the first two years have gone on to secure over $40 million of additional funding from government and private sources.

“This type of leveraging is a critical element of our strategy to build the University’s research enterprise and promote collaboration,” said Wilson. “The program is proving to be a tremendous catalyst and is among the most rewarding investments that the University of Massachusetts makes each year.”

The Warner award will fund a collaborative research program with the pharmaceutical industry to develop processes to reduce the harmful environmental impacts resulting from manufacturing. Faculty from the Community Health and Sustainability Department and the Clinical Laboratory and Nutritional Sciences Department will work on the development of designed formulations of active pharmaceutical ingredients that will cut manufacturing costs and enable more environmentally friendly manufacturing.
