Mohammad Faghri is internationally known for his work in fluid flow and heat transfer in micro scale devices. His main research focus in the last five years has been in detection of disease biomarkers using lab-on-a-chip technology (both paper based and polymer based) with applications for point-of-care diagnostics. He has published and presented 207 archival articles and is the author of seven books on a wide range of topics in heat transfer (computer simulations in compact heat exchangers, modeling of engineering heat transfer phenomena, heat and fluid flow in microscale and nanoscale structures, heat transfer in gas turbines, modeling and simulation of turbulent heat transfer, transport phenomena in fuel cells and transport phenomena in fires). He is also on the editorial boards of five journals (Frontiers in Heat and Mass Transfer online journal, Journal of Heat Transfer Research, International Journal of Heat Exchangers, International Journal of Science and Technology, and the ASME Journal of Heat Transfer).

He is a Fellow of ASME and the recipient of 2004 ASME Heat Transfer Memorial Award (National Award) for pioneering research in the field of fluid flow and heat transfer. He was selected as the jubilee (150 Anniversary) Professor at the Chalmers University in 1994 and Wenner-Gren Foundation Fellow at Lund Institute of Technology, both in Sweden. He was also the recipient of URI 2008 Foundation Scholarly Excellence Award. Other awards bestowed to him are the URI 2009 Research and Intellectual Property award and the 2005 College of Engineering Edmund and Dorothy Marshall award for Faculty Excellence.

The Program

The Interdisciplinary Neuroscience Program (INP) offers a Master of Science (M.S.) degree, Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree, or a Certificate in the Neurosciences. The program provides broad instruction across several neuroscience disciplines and gives students an opportunity to focus on a specific area of specialization.
