The Executive Board of the Program Committee invites a distinguished member of AIChE to present a comprehensive authoritative review of the chemical engineering science in his or her field of specialization.
In honor of one of chemical engineering’s most extraordinary leaders, AIChE is pleased to announce the renaming of its prestigious, annual Institute Lecture to the John M. Prausnitz AIChE Institute Lecture. Dr. Prausnitz is an AIChE Fellow and 64-year member. He is a Member of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
In 2003, he was presented with the National Medal of Science. The AIChE Foundation gratefully acknowledges the generosity of John’s closest peers who have made lead gifts to establish an endowment to support the Lecture and ensure John’s name will be recognized in perpetuity.
Prior to 2016 the John M. Prausnitz AIChE Institute Lecturer Award was named the Institute Lecturer Award. To see past recipients of the Institute Lecturer Award click here.
