DeLisa to receive AIChE Division 15c Plenary Lecture Award
CBE Professor Matt DeLisa, the William L. Lewis Professor of Engineering, has been awarded the 2013 AIChE Division 15c Plenary Lecture.
The Food, Pharmaceutical and Bioengineering Division (FP&BE) division ("Division 15") of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) provides engineers and scientists interested in the field of food, pharmaceuticals, and bioengineering with places to join and to discuss.
It also supplies technical publications and information in these fields, including papers at national Institute meetings.
In addition, the division coordinates the Institute's activities in the fields of food, pharmaceuticals, and bioengineering with the activities of other related societies. Further, the FP&BE encourages the focus of biological sciences in chemical engineering curricula and promotes the application of sanitary design principles for process equipment and installations.
DeLisa will deliver the award lecture in November at the 2013 AIChE Annual Meeting to be held in San Francisco, CA. This year's meeting has a special focus on Global Challenges for Engineering a Sustainable Future.
