Professors Bates and Leighton with IPrime’s MP and EMD programs are awarded Cozzarelli Prize

IPrime’s MP and EMD programs are pleased to announce that Regents Professor Frank S. Bates and Distinguished McKnight University Professor Chris Leighton, along with Sangwoo Lee, a former CEMS post-doctoral fellow and doctoral student, were awarded a 2014 Cozzarelli Prize from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) in Engineering and Applied Sciences. Their research deals with the structures that form when long chain molecules known as block polymers assemble into nearly spherical nanoscale particles that organize into a variety of three-dimensional patterns, typically in highly symmetric ways.
