The Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering's (ChBE) Unit Operations Laboratory, which has in the recent past received extensive renovations and generous gifts from alumni and friends, was the subject of a feature story in the The Campaign Brief, the online newsletter of the University of Maryland's Great Expectations capital campaign.

The story, "Building First-Class Campus Environments: Gifts Fund Equipment for Top-Notch Labs," highlights the Lowe and Murray bequests, which enabled the department to purchase new equipment including a fuel cell testing station that is the only one of its kind in the state available in an undergraduate chemical engineering curriculum. The Unit Ops Lab director, Assistant Professor Chunsheng Wang, and Kunal Pundit (B.S. '09, currently a ChBE graduate student) discuss their experiences with the upgraded facility.
