University of Delaware Undergraduate Research Program

Supercritical Fluid Technologies is proud to support the Undergraduate Research Program in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware. Students expand and enhance their education by performing research projects under the guidance of professors who are experts in their chosen field of study. This provides students with greater insight into the areas where they plan to focus their graduate studies and careers. Many undergraduate researchers have the opportunity to publish papers or present talks on the results of their work at scientific meetings.
American Diabetes Association

Diabetes is a serious disease affecting over 25 million Americans. Complications from diabetes include increased risk of heart disease and stroke and it is the leading cause of kidney failure. Every year in 80 cities across America, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) hosts “Tour de Cure” bicycling events. Riders and teams along with their sponsors raise millions of dollars which go toward research, advocacy and education. SFT provides matching grants to employees who take part in these rides.

The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary is a nonprofit organization established in 1996 to take a leadership role in protecting and enhancing the Delaware Estuary, where fresh water from the Delaware River mixes with salt water from the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of 28 Congressionally designated National Estuary Programs throughout the coastal United States working to improve the environmental health of the nation’s estuaries. Its staff works with partners in three states to increase awareness, understanding, and scientific knowledge about the Delaware Estuary, the region’s most important cultural, economic, and recreational resource.
