Nano Letters’ Charles Lieber Wins 2017 Von Hippel Award

Nano Letters Co-Editor, Charles M. Lieber is the 2017 recipient of the prestigious Von Hippel Award, from the Materials Research Society. The Society’s highest honor, the Von Hippel Award recognizes those qualities most prized by materials scientists and engineers: brilliance and originality of intellect, combined with vision that transcends the boundaries of conventional scientific disciplines.

Professor Lieber is honored “for pioneering contributions to nanoscience, defining the foundations of rational synthesis of nanoscale wires, characterization of their fundamental physical properties, and the development of applications of these materials in chemistry, biology and medicine.”

As the 2017 recipient of the Von Hippel Award, Professor Lieber joins his Nano Letters co-Editor A. Paul Alivisatos, who received the Award in 2011.

The Award will be conferred on Wednesday, November 30 during the MRS Awards Ceremony, after which Professor Lieber will give the Von Hippel Award Talk on Nanowires, Nanoelectronics and Revolutionary Tools for Brain Science.

Lieber has authored of over 100 articles, including top-cited works from ACS such as:
