Danish Academy of Technical Sciences awards prize to Brigitte Städler
Congratulations to Associate Professor Brigitte Städler who has been awarded the Danish Polymer Prize, the Elastyrene prize 2020, for her research in developing polymer-based nanomaterials for medical use. The award is given by the Danish Academy of Technical Sciences (ATV).
Associate Professor Brigitte Städler, INANO and Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Aarhus University, is one of this year's recipients of The Danish Polymer Prize - ATV | Elastyrenprisen. The awards were presented at ATV's annual meeting on 18 August.
The Elastyrene Prize 2020 has been awarded to Städler as she is a very strong researcher in the development and use of polymers for medical use.
Justification for awarding the prize
In the justification for awarding the prize to Städler the prize committee has stated that she is an internationally recognized polymer researcher who has an impressive research production behind her and have built up a strong research group within her research area.
In her research, Brigitte Städler focuses on the development of polymer-based nanomaterials for medical use, including the development of intercellularly active nanoreactors, nanobots and sensors based on membrane-permeable polymers. The research is largely done in collaboration with industrial companies.
The prize was awarded to two researchers and besides Brigitte Städler, the prize was also awarded to Professor Esben Thormann, Department of Chemistry at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
About the ATV│Elastyrenprisen
The ATV│Elastyren Prize is awarded every year for the purpose of motivating and supporting Danish chemical research. Candidates for the award must have distinguished themselves by contributing to innovation and through significant results in the field of chemical research into and development of synthetic or biological polymers for medical use. These are criteria that both this year's award recipients live up to to a very high degree.
