AIChE has announced the creation of a new Fellowship program that will assist researchers in pursuing innovative technical work with the potential of making valuable contributions to society.
The Langer Prizes for Innovation and Entrepreneurial Excellence will award unrestricted grants of up to $100,000 to assist researchers — particularly those working in chemical and biological engineering— in pursuing “blue-sky” ideas that may lead to important technical and commercial innovations. The annual fellowships are being endowed by the AIChE Foundation in the name of Robert Langer, the David H. Koch Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a pioneer in drug delivery and biomaterials for medical applications.
