Abbott earns AIChE award

The American Institute of Chemical Engineers has selected John T. and Magdalen L. Soboda Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering Nick Abbott to receive its 2012 Alpha Chi Sigma Award. Abbott has pioneered and reduced to practice several key advances in the interfacial science and engineering of soft materials, including liquid crystals, nano- and microparticles, synthetic and biological amphiphiles and multifunctional polymers. These advances have been documented in 230 peer reviewed papers, which have gathered more than 7,000 citations, have led to more than 35 patents, and have yielded two spin-off companies, Platypus Technologies LLC and Wound LLC.
