Winners of the 2014 Demetriades - Tsafka - Kokkalis Prizes Announced

06-10-14

The student winners of the 2014 Demetriades - Tsafka - Kokkalis Prizes were announced at a special luncheon with the Demetriades - Tsafka – Kokkalis family. Imran Malik received the prize in Biotechnology for his work with Axel Scherer on designing and demonstrating a sample-to-answer disease detection system based on a low-cost quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). Faisal Amlani was the recipient of the prize in Seismo-Engineering, Prediction, and Protection for his work with Oscar Bruno on the development of a new high-order methodology for seismic and elastic wave propagation with applications to earthquakes. This year there were two winners for the Demetriades-Tsafka-Kokkalis Prizes is in Nanotechnology. One winner was Bradley Lyon for his worked with Morteza Gharib on formulating the concept and fabricating the methods for creating carbon nanotube microneedles that delivered drugs painlessly to animals. The other winner of the Nanotechnology prize was Muhammad Mujeeb-U-Rahman who has worked with Axel Scherer on developing an inexpensive implantable and wireless continuous glucose monitor chip which is only 1mmx1mm size.
