Natalie Artzi, PhD, and Jeffrey Karp, PhD, both of the Division of Engineering in Medicine, were recognized by the Society for Biomaterials (SFB) for their research advancements. Artzi received a Mid-Career Award, and Karp won the Clemson Award for Applied Research.
The Mid-Career Award recognizes an individual SFB member who has demonstrated outstanding achievements in and/or contributions to the field of biomaterials research. Artzi is being recognized for her research on tissue-responsive nanomaterials for biomedical applications.
The Clemson Award for Applied Research recognizes individuals whose accomplishments include significant utilization or application of basic knowledge in science to achieve a specific goal in the field of biomaterials. Karp is being recognized for his commitment to translational research while also supporting the next generation of translational investigators through mentorship and training.
Artzi and Karp will each deliver a lecture at the World Biomaterials Congress in Scotland this May.
The Society for Biomaterials is a professional society that promotes advances in biomedical materials research and development by encouragement of cooperative educational programs, clinical applications and professional standards in the biomaterials field.
