Clarkson's New "five-million Dollar Club" Recognizes Faculty Research Funding Accomplishments
Five faculty members were inducted into Clarkson University’s newly established “Five-Million Dollar Club,” which recognizes individuals whose cumulative external research funding has reached or exceeded that amount.
“Our faculty includes high caliber researchers with international reputations,” said Clarkson President Denny Brown. “Their ground-breaking research in science, technology and engineering is changing the way we understand and interact with our world, transforming industry and affecting policy.”
Recognized as charter members of the group are Vice Provost for Research and Professor of Chemical Engineering S.V. Babu; Bayard D. Clarkson Distinguished Professor of Chemistry Philip K. Hopke; Victor K. LaMer Chair of Chemistry Egon Matijević; Professor of Chemical Engineering William R. Wilcox; and Professor of Chemistry Raymond Mackay.
Much of the highly funded research led by Clarkson faculty is carried out in the Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP) and the Clarkson Center for the Environment, two key centers that provide state-of-the-art resources and facilities. CAMP is dedicated to developing research and educational programs in high-technology materials processing, including colloid and surface science and particle science, and to transferring newly developed technologies to business and industry. Housed within CAMP is the Center for Quantum Device Technology.
The Clarkson Center for the Environment was established to find environmental engineering solutions to contamination and waste management problems and includes the Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science, a new center that fosters research in air sampling and analysis, receptor modeling, atmospheric deposition, and the application of computational fluid dynamics to air pollution problems.
Another prominent center for research at Clarkson is the International Center for Gravity Materials Science and Applications (ICGMSA). The primary mission of ICGMSA is to conduct research on the influences of gravity on materials processing via computer modeling and experiments performed in space and on centrifuges in order to develop new and improved manufacturing methods. The secondary mission of the Center is to foster international collaboration on gravity materials science.
