Engineering obesity control
A type of stem cell that morphs into fat cells may hold secrets to reducing obesity, a major public health problem. A University of Nebraska-Lincoln engineer's research to understand that process may one day lead to therapies to control obesity. Jung Yul Lim, assistant professor of mechanical and materials engineering, has earned a five-year Faculty Early Career Development Program Award from the National Science Foundation for this research.
