Aizenberg Elected to National Academy of Engineering
7 February, 2019. IMASC Senior Investigator Joanna Aizenberg has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) for her contributions to the understanding of biological systems and bioinspired materials design. Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer, honoring those who have made outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education, as explained in the NAE announcement. An example of bioinspired design presently under investigation at IMASC because of its unique catalytic properties is the raspberry colloid-templated material, developed by Aizenberg and her team (including IMASC member Tanya Shirman and IMASC alumnus Elijah Shirman). Joanna Aizenberg is the Amy Smith Berylson Professor of Materials Science at the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, as well as a Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.
