Daeyeon Lee, Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, has received the 2022 Outstanding Achievement Award in Nanoscience from the American Chemical Society (ACS).
The annual award recognizes exceptional achievements in nanoscience research and notable leadership in the area of colloidal nanoparticles and application. Lee was chosen from a large group of extraordinary nominees among the invited speakers, “for pioneering research in development of factory-on-a-chip and its application for large scale nanoparticle synthesis and functionalization.”
“I am truly honored and humbled to receive this prestigious award,” says Lee. “I would like to thank my team for their time and dedication to the research and all my exceptional collaborators for their partnership. I am excited to see what we will be able to achieve together in the future.”
At Penn, Lee is a member of the Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter, the Nano/Bio Interface Center, and the Center for Engineering Cells and Regeneration. His Soft Materials Research and Technology Lab focuses on the interactions of soft materials, especially how nano- and micro-scale materials assemble into macroscopic structures.
ACS was founded in 1876 and chartered by the U.S. Congress. It has a membership of over 151,000 individuals across 140 countries and its mission is to advance the broader chemistry enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people.
