Can organic electronic materials emulate our skin? Zhenan Bao's work shows how

Posted on September 15, 2015 at 4:40 PM

Zhenan Bao, a professor of Chemical Engineering at Stanford University, will deliver a lecture to celebrate her Andreas Acrivos Award for Professional Progress in Chemical Engineering at the 2015 AICHE Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah. The award is given to a chemical engineer who has made significant contribution to development of a new principle, process or product in the chemical engineering field. Prof. Bao was chosen for her pioneering work in organic electronic materials and devices, and will present her lecture titled "Skin-inspired organic electronic materials and devices." Bao's work has enabled designs and development of flexible electronic circuits and displays, which are now utilized for building cutting-edge medical devices, energy storages, and environmental applications.


Prof. Bao is a fellow of MRS, ACS, AAAS, SPIE, ACS PMSE and ACS Poly, and she is an associate editor for Chemical Sciences. She received the 2013 ACS Carl Marvel Creative Polymer Chemistry Award, 2011 ACS Cope Scholar Award, and 2009 Royal Society of Chemistry Beilby Medal and Prize.
