Professor Karen Wooley, W. T. Doherty-Welch Professor Chair and Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Texas A&M University, will be the plenary speaker at the NNI Winter Symposium on February 12, 2016. Professor Wooley has served as the director of a Program of Excellence in Nanotechnology, which is financed by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, was the recipient of the 2014 Centenary Prize of Royal Society of Chemistry, and serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of the American Chemical Society. In 2015, Professor Wooley was recognized by and named as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences for her expertise in the novel development of degradable polymers. Her group focuses on both fundamental and applied studies of these materials for the diagnosis and treatment of disease, use as non-toxic anti-biofouling coatings, and applications such as ultra-high resolution photoresists for microelectronics patterning.
