Louisiana Tech professor is Small Times' Innovator of the Year
Date:12/5/2007

Dr. Yuri Lvov, a chemistry professor in Louisiana Techs Institute for Micromanufacturing, has been named Small Times 2007 Innovator of the Year, beating candidates from Princeton University and companies across the nation.

The results will be printed in the journals January 2008 issue.

Lvov received the award based on his work related to important cancer drugs. His research pioneers drug reformulation through polyelectrolyte nano-encapsulation, which has allowed stable nano and micro colloids of cancer drugs. Lvov has used the same approach to improve cellulose microfibers from recycled paper through polyelectrolyte nanocoating, which has allowed increased recycled fiber usage in paper.

Each year it gets more and more difficult to judge the best and brightest as the micro and nanotechnology market continues to mature and new products come to market, said Christine Shaw, senior vice president and group publisher of Small Times. It is an honor to recognize the leading companies, and business and research executives who are driving integration of nanotechnology into the commercial pipeline.

Dr. Kody Varahramyan, director for the Institute for Micromanufacturing, said Lvovs area of specialization is nanotechnology, including nanoassembly of ultra thin organized films, bio/nanocomposites, nanoparticle ensembles, nano/construction of ordered shells on microtemplates, nanocapsules for drug and enzyme delivery and controlled release. Lvov has also published two books and has had more than 160 peer reviewed papers on these topics.

This is a well-deserved award, recognizing Dr. Lvovs extensive scientific and technological contributions, Varahramyan said. He is nationally and internationally known for his pioneering work in the area of nanotechnology, particularly as it relates to the layer-by-layer nanoassembly technique and its applications.
