TBP Graduation Regalia, Rapid Dopamine Biosensor, & UWM New Members (April 2019)

Be prepared for graduation. Checkout the honor cord, stole, and tassel options from Tau Beta Pi to have you looking your best when you walk across the stage. There’s also a new modern hat in time for warm weather.


Researchers from the University of Central Florida’s NanoScience Technology Centre have published their work regarding a rapid detector for dopamine in the journal Nano Letters. UCF professor and department chair of materials and science and engineering, Sudipta Seal, Ph.D. (WI G ’96), had this to say:

“Getting the sensor to be sensitive to dopamine had been quite the challenge for researchers for a while, but using altered cerium oxide nanostructures on the sensing platform was key in making the sensor work.” Click here to read the article for more details on the benefits of this new method.


The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee College of Engineering & Applied Science congratulated the five newest members of Tau Beta Pi at the WI Gamma Chapter. A joint initiation was held last week with the Milwaukee School of Engineering (WI Delta) and Marquette University (WI Beta) on the MSOE campus.
