The American Academy of Arts and Sciences announced today that CU Boulder Professor Kristi Anseth has been elected to its 2019 class. Anseth is among more than 200 individuals selected this year for their exceptional achievements in the arts and sciences, business, philanthropy and the public sector.
Founded in 1780, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences is an honorary society that recognizes and convenes leaders from a variety of disciplines to address critical issues facing the nation and the world. The academy’s projects and publications inform public policy for the benefit of all.
Anseth earned her doctorate in chemical engineering from CU Boulder in 1994 and joined the faculty in 1996. Her research focuses on developing novel biomaterials for human health and advancing regenerative medicine to help prevent, treat or reverse disease and injury… Continue reading.
Kristi Anseth will present the group’s work on dynamic cell scaffolds in a talk entitled “Dynamic Cell Scaffolds through Photochemical Reactions” at 1:30 PM on December 3rd in the Back Bay B room on the secon floor of the Sheridan. She hopes to see you all there!
Danny Alge and Kristi Anseth contributed a chapter to a new RSC book on using thiol-based chemistry in material science. This insightful chapter highlights power applications of this exciting chemistry in tissue engineering applications.
The Society for Biological Engineering is happy to announce Dr. Kristi S. Anseth as the winner of the 2013 James E. Bailey Award for her outstanding contributions in the development of novel photo-crosslinkable biomaterials for regenerative medicine, tissue engineering applications and for leadership in the application of chemical engineering principles for biomedicine.
Our congratulations to Kristi Anseth, who has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences. Kristi, who is also a member of the National Academy of Engineering and the Institute of Medicine, now joins a very select group of scientists/engineers (approximately 15) who are members of all three branches of the National Academies.
Two University of Colorado Boulder professors have been elected members of the National Academy of Sciences, a top honor recognizing scientists and engineers for their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.
The new members are Distinguished Professor Kristi Anseth of the chemical and biological engineering department and Professor Henry Kapteyn of the physics department. Anseth and Kapteyn bring the number of CU-Boulder faculty members who have been elected to NAS to 27. The academy elected 84 new members in 2013, along with 21 foreign associates from 14 countries.
Anseth and Kapteyn were the only scientists from Colorado elected to NAS in 2013.
Distinguished Professor Kristi Anseth of the University of Colorado Boulder’s chemical and biological engineering department has been selected to receive the 2013 Hazel Barnes Prize, the highest faculty recognition for teaching and research awarded by the university.
Anseth, also a faculty member at CU-Boulder’s BioFrontiers Institute, will receive an engraved university medal and a $20,000 cash award, the largest single faculty award funded by CU-Boulder. She will be recognized at CU-Boulder’s spring commencement ceremony on May 10 and at a reception following the event that will include former Hazel Barnes Prize winners, family members, colleagues and students.
Anseth is known internationally for her innovative biomaterials and regenerative medicine research. She leads a team of faculty and students who are developing biodegradable “scaffolds” to stimulate the growth of new human tissues to replace those lost by injury or disease.
