In 2013, the Commissioner of Food and Drugs charged the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA’s) Science Board, an advisory committee of national experts across various scientific disciplines, to make recommendations on areas deemed critical to the Agency’s ability to carry out its scientific mission. The Science Looking Forward Subcommittee was created to evaluate these three principal areas:

  1. How FDA can meet emerging and future trends in science and technology
  2. How FDA can better use collaborations to advance its mission and
  3. How FDA can support a culture of scientific excellence and creativity.

The Subcommittee was also asked to ...


Pseudocapacitors For Energy Storage, Anuradha Venkataraman Jul 2015

Pseudocapacitors For Energy Storage, Anuradha Venkataraman

Dissertations and Theses

Fluctuation in the demand for electrical power and the intermittent nature of the supply of energy from renewable sources like solar and wind have made the need for energy storage a dire necessity. Current storage technologies like batteries and supercapacitors fall short either in terms of power output or in their ability to store sufficient energy. Pseudocapacitors combine features of both and offer an alternative to stabilize the power supply. They possess high rates of charge and discharge and are capable of storing much more energy in comparison to a supercapacitor. In the quest for solutions that are economical and ...
