Of course, I hope to do something more, Lvov said. Many, many people were considered. This award means Louisiana researchers are moving forward.
Louisiana Tech President Dan Reneau commended Lvov on his research and technological advances.
Yuri Lvov is an excellent scientist and a very fine individual, Reneau said. Louisiana Tech University is fortunate to have him as a professor.
Dr. Stan Napper, dean of the College of Engineering and Science, said Lvovs willingness to collaborate with young faculty members in a variety of areas has helped boost interdisciplinary research within the university.
His technology and scientific contributions have enabled so many of our researchers to develop innovations in a variety of areas, Napper said. He freely shares his knowledge and has been very supportive of new faculty hires and has helped them become successes early in their careers.
Dr. Les Guice, vice president for research and development, said Lvov is a remarkable individual and one of the most prolific scientists in terms of his cited journal publications at Tech.
Whats really special about Yuri to me is he understands the innovative process of taking things he does into things industries are interested in, Guice said. He provides leadership for us, and (this award) is an amazing demonstration of his technology. He can take this layer-by-layer assembly method and apply it to cancer drugs and pulp and paper to make it have better properties.
Guice added that Lvov is passionate about Tech and is a great asset to the university.
Great people like him could go anywhere in the country, Guice said. He has made a difference for us.
