Clarkson University President Tony Collins has announced that Costel C. Darie has been granted tenure and promoted from assistant professor to associate professor of chemistry & biomolecular science in the School of Arts & Sciences.
Darie joined Clarkson in 2009. He received his bachelor of science and master of science degrees in biochemistry at Cuza University in Romania, and his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the University of Freiburg in Germany. Darie also received a nursing degree at Vaslui County Hospital, Romania.
Before coming to Clarkson, Darie was a postdoctoral associate at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, a research scientist at the Skirball Institute at New York University and an associate scientist at Mount Sinai in New York City.
His research interests focus on developing biomarker signatures for early detection of autism spectrum disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders and breast cancer. They also include protein-protein interactions, cellular signaling, immunotherapy, mass spectrometry and proteomics.
Darie has coauthored more than 45 professional articles, 14 editorials, 18 book chapters, and two provisional patents, and has had a number of abstracts, posters and oral presentations. He also co-edited with Alisa Woods a book titled Advancements of Mass Spectrometry in Biomedical Research with Springer. He also developed a research program that has allowed his graduate and undergraduate students to win more than 50 awards.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and the health professions, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
