Engineering Professor Receives Award for Biotechnology Research
Nina Shapley

Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering Nina Shapley has received a research award for showing leadership and scientific discovery in the field of biotechnology. The award is from the James D. Watson Investigator Program, created to maximize the potential of life sciences research being conducted at New York's public, not-for-profit and private academic research institutions. The program complements New York 's comprehensive efforts to make the Empire State an international leader in high-tech and biotechnology-related research and economic development.

Shapley will research the behavior of concentrated suspensions and emulsions that capture key elements of the circulatory system, which could be used for improved diagnostic nuclear magnetic resonance imaging and hydrodynamic targeting of drug delivery.
