2011 Excellence in Surface Science Award Winner: Nicholas A. Peppas

Nicholas A. PeppasNicholas A. Peppas is the Fletcher Stuckey Pratt Chair of Chemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Pharmacy; and chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. He is a member of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, the National Ac1ademy of Engineering, the National Academy of Pharmacy of France, and the Texas Academy of Medicine, Engineering and Sciences. Peppas is a world leader in biomaterials, drug delivery and pharmaceutical bioengineering. Among other medical devices, he has developed, patented and/or commercialized nanodelivery systems for oral administration of insulin to type I diabetic patients, systems for oral delivery of calcitonin for treatment of postmenopausal women suffering from osteoporosis, new treatments of multiple sclerosis using interferon-beta, as well as intraocular lenses and artificial vocal cords. He has been recognized with awards from AIChE (Founders Award, William Walker Award, Institute Lecture, Jay Bailey Award, Bioengineering Award, Materials Award), BMES (Distinguished Scientist Award), AIMBE (Galletti Award), Society for Biomaterials (Founders, Clemson and Hall Awards), Controlled Release Society (Founders, Heller and Eurand Awards) and other societies. He is the President of the International Union of Societies of Biomaterials Science and Engineering and serves on the Board of the (US) Biomedical Engineering Society.
