Jonathan Rivnay is named a 2019 Sloan Fellow in Chemistry, awarded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. This award will continue to fund our work developing and understanding organic mixed conductors, and will allow us to pilot new concepts in applications in organic bioelectronic regenerative engineering and neural interfacing.
Prof. Jonathan Rivnay was honored on January 2-6, 2019 as a “Rising Star” of the Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering (CMBE) special interest group of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES), at the annual CMBE conference held this year in San Diego, CA. Jonathan was one of six early stage PIs recognized this year, and he presented on the group’s new efforts on conductive hydrogels for regenerative engineering applications. It was a pleasure and honor to be among such a stellar group of assistant professors!
Prof. Jonathan Rivnay awarded an NSF CAREER award for “Understanding the Role of Structure on Ionic/Electronic Properties in Polymeric Mixed Conductors.”
In addition to studies of structure and transport in materials relevant for bioelectronics, the group aims to enhance science communication through community engagement, exploring the effect of the duration of outreach events on the development of researchers as teachers/mentors.
