United States Navy Rear Admiral Price Visits NDSU

NDSU Researchers hosted a group of Navy VIPs and discussed various projects they're working on at the institution. 

Navy Rear Admiral Gene Price, Petty Officer Third Class Travis Scott, and Public Affairs Office Lieutenant Emily Mccamy were hosted by Jane Schuh, vice president of the Office of Research and Creative Activity, Dean Webster, professor and chair of the Department of Coatings and Polymeric Materials and Aaron Reinholz, director of Research Operations. Shane Stafslien, senior research specialist and James Bahr, senior research engineer discussed their projects with the group.

The tour focused on Webster and Stafslien’s special coatings projects that lower the adhesion strength of barnacles and mussels to metal objects and coatings that limit biofouling on oil booms. Bahr demonstrated his work with soy-based dust control materials. Some of the projects originated from grants from the Office of Naval Research.

The group toured NDSU laboratories located in the R1 and R1A buildings.
