April 30, 2008 | by Megan Fellman
EVANSTON, Ill. --- Igal Szleifer, professor of biomedical engineering in the Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, has been named the Christina Enroth-Cugell Professor of Biomedical Engineering.

Szleifer's research is aimed at the fundamental understanding of the properties of complex molecular systems that encompass problems at the interface between medicine, biology, chemistry, physics and materials science.

His research group concentrates on the development and application of theoretical approaches that enable the study of the systems of interest at the molecular level.

Szleifer has received numerous awards including the Camille and Henry Dreyfus New Faculty Award, National Science Foundation CAREER Award, Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award and American Chemical Society Akron Section Award.

He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and a University faculty scholar. He also has held several invited positions in The Netherlands, France and Spain.

Before joining Northwestern in 2007, Szleifer was a member of the faculty at Purdue University.
