UC Riverside bioengineer receives high honor from chemical engineers
Date:6/26/2008

RIVERSIDE, Calif. As a boy growing up in Brooklyn, NY, UC Riverside's Jerome Schultz would often sneak into his father's office at home to peer into a microscope to examine slides of tissues his father, a physician, had on hand.

Over the years, that early interest in science evolved into an illustrious career in bioengineering the intersection of biology and engineering that the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), in celebrating its centennial this year, has recognized by naming Schultz one of the "One Hundred Engineers of the Modern Era."

Schultz, a distinguished professor and chair of the Department of Bioengineering, will receive the honor at the AIChE's annual meeting in Philadelphia, Pa., Nov. 16-21.

This year the AIChE is highlighting individuals who advanced in chemical engineering during the years after World War II (the Modern Era), as well as "authors of groundbreaking books, industrial executives, astronauts, and chemical engineers who achieved fame in other pursuits."

"Dr. Schultz has made superb contributions to chemical engineering and bioengineering in the last half century," said Shu Chien, a professor of bioengineering and medicine at UC San Diego. "He is a rare individual whose outstanding work has had major impacts on industry, academia, professional societies, and government. In addition to his pace-setting research on biosensors, membrane transport and biotechnology, Dr. Schultz has founded and built major bioengineering departments at the University of Pittsburgh and the University of California, Riverside."

A pioneer in bioengineering, Schultz also is the director of the Center for Bioengineering Research in the
