Northwestern University Accepting Nominations for Nanoscience Awards
Two prestigious international prizes in nanoscience and nanomedicine, established by Northwestern University, are now accepting nominations.
The deadline to nominate a researcher, which could include a member of the university faculty, for the $250,000 Kabiller Prize in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine and the $10,000 Kabiller Young Investigator Award is May 15, 2019.
Both of the prizes were established in 2015 and recognize researchers who have made significant contributions to the field of nanotechnology and its application to medicine and biology.
“Our goal is to recognize the outstanding accomplishments in nanoscience and nanomedicine that have the potential to benefit all humankind,” David G. Kabiller, a Northwestern trustee and alumnus, said.
The Kabiller Award selection committee is comprised of an independent, international committee of experts. It will announce and hand over the prizes to winners in November 2019.
Last year, Robert Langer, the David H. Koch Institute Professor in the department of biochemistry at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), won the Kabiller Prize, while Liangfang Zhang, professor at the University of California, San Diego, won the Young Investigator Award.
