Suhr’s research impressed the National Science Foundation, which recently presented him with their most prestigious honor for junior teacher-scholars, a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program award. The award brings with it $400,000 of funding over five years for his research and teaching.
Kwang Kim, chairman of Suhr’s University Mechanical Engineering Department, said in his letter of support “his proposed research work …will represent one of the most tangible, concrete and promising applications of nanotechnology to realistic mechanical systems in the near future.”
What do you think? …Exciting?
