Gabriel Levesque-Tremblay Share Director, AIChE Technical Entities & GrantsAIChEDr. Gabriel Levesque-Tremblay the Director for Technical Entities and Grants. Prior to joining AIChE, Dr. Levesque-Tremblay was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at University of California, Berkeley (UCB) working on Synthetic Biology Projects at the Energy Biosciences Institute. He holds a PhD from University of British Columbia (UBC), a Master and a Bachelor in Science from University of Quebec in Montreal. At AIChE Dr. Levesque-Tremblay supports the strategic activities of 12 executive boards and societies including the Society for Biological Engineering (SBE), the Institute for Sustainability (IfS), and the Center for Energy Initiative (CEI), the Regenerative Engineering Society (RE) and the Center for Hydrogen safety (CHS). The various technical entities of AIChE work together to solve grand challenges in a plethora of relevant topics including Bioengineering, Regenerative Engineering, Pharmaceuticals, Therapeutics, Energy, Space Exploration, Waste Management, Water, Environment, Sustainability and many more. We manage a large portfolio of funding and grants from local and international agencies including NSF, DOE, DOD (ONR, DARPA), USDA, NIH, Heising-Simons Foundation, Burroughs Welcome Fund, United Engineering Foundation, Singapore Tourism Bureau, etc. Dr. Levesque-Tremblay launched the Center for Hydrogen Safety in collaboration with the Department of Energy (DOE) and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) in April 2019 involving already 27 active members to promote the safe use Hydrogen technologies which we see as essential step in the implementation of hydrogen fuel technologies.
