Luk Awarded Early Career Development Award

Syracuse University chemist Luk receives NSF CAREER Award for work on molecules that self-assemble.

Yan-Yeung Luk, Assistant Professor of Chemistry in Syracuse University’s College of Arts and Sciences, was recently awarded a $430,000 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award under the auspices of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Luk will use the award to expand his study of a new class of water-soluble molecules that can spontaneously self-assemble (stick together) to form new kinds of materials for use in the biomaterials and biopharmaceutical industries.

The CAREER Award, the NSF’s most prestigious and competitive award for young faculty members, recognizes outstanding scientists and engineers who, early in their careers, show exceptional potential for leadership.
