November 15, 2022

Northwestern University professor Samuel I. Stupp has received the 2022 Von Hippel Award, the highest honor awarded by the Materials Research Society (MRS). The prize recognizes “brilliance and originality of intellect, combined with vision that transcends the boundaries of conventional scientific disciplines.”

Stupp is Board of Trustees Professor of Materials Science and Engineering, Chemistry, Medicine and Biomedical Engineering at Northwestern, with appointments in the McCormick School of Engineering, Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences and Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. He also directs the Simpson Querrey Institute for BioNanotechnology (SQI), the Center for Regenerative Nanomedicine and the Center for Bio-Inspired Energy Science, an Energy Frontiers Research Center funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.  

Stupp was recognized for his pioneering contributions to the development and understanding of a broad range of molecularly designed supramolecular soft materials that function as bioactive scaffolds in regenerative medicine, matrices for photocatalytic activity and stimuli-responsive robotic structures. He will officially receive the award Nov. 30 at the MRS Fall Meeting in Boston.
