BENJAMIN GARVER LAMME AWARD

The Benjamin Garver Lamme Award was established in 1928, and recognizes excellence in teaching, contributions to research and technical literature, and achievements that advance the profession of engineering college administration.

Nicholas A. Peppas is chair of the biomedical engineering department, director of the Center on Biomaterials, Drug Delivery and Bionanotechnology, and professor of biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, and pharmacy at the University of Texas, Austin. He received the Benjamin Garver Lamme Award in recognition of his profound educational contribution to biomedical systems, bionanotechnology, biomolecular sciences and engineering, and biomedical engineering education over the past 30 years. He also is honored for his insights into numerous engineering processes and applications leading to nanoscale analysis, design, and development of new biomaterials and medical devices. Peppas is a leading authority in biomaterials, biopolymers, nanotechnology, and biomedical, chemical, and pharmaceutical engineering and is a world leader in the education of chemical and biomedical engineers. In 37 years he has designed and taught 23 new courses at Purdue and the University of Texas, where he also received 11 teaching awards and has supervised the research of 95 Ph.D.'s and about 180 postdoctoral and graduate students.

Over the course of his career he has won many awards, including five ASEE awards; in 2012 he received the National Academy of Engineering's Founders Award, the highest recognition of the Academy. In 2008, AIChE named him as one of the One Hundred Chemical Engineers of the Modern Era. Peppas has held many positions in several different professional societies, such as president of the International Union of Societies of Biomaterials Science and Engineering, and chair-elect of the Engineering Section of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Peppas hold a Dipl. Eng. from the National Technology University of Athens (1971), a Sc.D. from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1973), and honorary doctorates from the Universities of Ghent, Parma, Athens, and Ljubljana.
