Dr. Khademhosseini wins Nano Young Investigator Award from AIChE
July 22, 2014
Dr. Khademhosseini will be the 2014 recipient of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Nanoscale Science and Engineering Forum (NSEF) Young Investigator Award. This award is bestowed annually and recognizes outstanding interdisciplinary research in nanoscale science and engineering by a scientist or engineer in the early stages of their professional career (within 10 years of completion of highest degree). The award will be presented at the Fall AIChE meeting where Dr. Khademhosseini will also present an NSEF plenary award lecture during the annual AIChe Meeting held in Atlanta, GA from November 16-21.

Congratulations to Dr. Khademhosseini for being named a National Award Finalist for the Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists!
May 23, 2014
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Khademhosseini has just been selected by the Blavatnik Family Foundation as a 2014 National Award Finalist for the Blavatnik Award for Young Scientists in the area of Physical Sciences and Engineering. With the guidance of the New York Academy of Sciences, the Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists was founded in 2007 to celebrate the innovative achievements of young postdoctoral and faculty scientists who work in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut. This is the inaugural year for the National Award, which will honor three scientists under the age of 42 from leading research universities and academic medical centers in chemistry, life sciences, and physical sciences and engineering with the $250,000 prize. Len Blavatnik, philanthropist and founder of the international industrial group, Access Industries, envisions the National Award to be "something like a Nobel Prize for young scientists", The three winners will be announced in September 2014.
