Renewed Harvard-BASF initiative to advance functional materials
Date:3/11/2013

r cosmetic applications.

The new, multi-university initiative builds on the successful model pioneered by the BASF Advanced Research Initiative that was based at Harvard SEAS from October 2007 to present. Established with leadership from Harvard's Office of Technology Development, that initiative engaged 13 academic research groups across the University and resulted in significant advances in the study of biofilms and of chemical formulations for drugs, foods, and cosmetics.

"Our relationship with BASF provides us with many excellent scientific problems that are both intellectually challenging and relevant to real-world needs," said SEAS faculty member David Weitz, Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics and Applied Physics at Harvard. "We're thrilled to continue this collaboration and have the opportunity to share insights across institutions in a new way. Anything that helps build interactions among the incredible talent in this region is good for all of us."

Weitz will serve on a scientific advisory committee along with George Whitesides, Woodford L. and Ann A. Flowers University Professor at Harvard; Robert Langer and Mary Boyce at MIT; and Todd Emrick and Alan Lesser at UMass Amherst, along with BASF scientists.

"We need the creative spirit of the widest possible range of sciences to develop solutions to meet the needs of a growing world population for clean drinking water, secure energy supply, and improved quality of life," said Christian Fischer, President of BASF's Advanced Materials and Systems Research. "I am convinced that BASF's market-oriented materials and systems researchers, together with the outstanding scientists at the American universities, make up the ideal team for seeking out technically and economically viable solutions."
