Nomura, an assistant professor in ESF's Department of Chemistry, specializes in the fields of microbiology, biotechnology and molecular biology with special interest in using molecular techniques to improve the supply of precursors for biobased products. He has submitted three notices of technology disclosure for patent applications.
By invitation, he has given 17 presentations in the past five years throughout the United States, China and Japan and served as advisor for graduate and post-doctorate students through their course of study.
This award, which is made annually, provides a $5,000 research account that can roll over for three years. Nomura will present a campuswide research seminar highlighting his work as the first seminar in the Adaptive Peaks Series during the 2011-12 academic year.
