University of Delaware professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Kelvin Lee has been named the winner of the 2019 Marvin J. Johnson Award in Microbial & Biochemical Technology from the American Chemical Society’s Division of Biochemical Technology, UDaily reports.

Lee is the fourth UD professor to receive the honor, after Wilfred Chen (2017), Abraham Lenhoff (2011) and Eleftherios Papoutsakis (1998); the only other four-time recipient is the University of California, Berkeley.

Lee is also the director of NIIMBL, the National Institute for Innovation in Manufacturing Biopharmaceuticals.

From UDaily:

With NIIMBL, a Manufacturing USA Institute headquartered in Newark, Delaware, Lee and the NIIMBL team lead a national consortium working to bring safe drugs to market faster and developing workforce training in the field of biopharmaceuticals.

While many pharmaceuticals utilize chemistry to treat disease, biopharmaceuticals utilize living cells, offering increased opportunity for personalized medicine and other advances. Before he took the helm of NIIMBL, Lee was the director of the Delaware Biotechnology Institute from 2008 to 2017. There, he increased biotechnology research, education, and workforce development in the state of Delaware.
