Antonios Mikos has been chosen to receive the Society for Biological Engineering’s 2017 James E. Bailey Award in Biological Engineering. The award is given in memory of Rice alumnus James Bailey ’66 for his many pioneering contributions to biotechnology. The Society for Biological Engineering noted that Bailey’s educational legacy “touched many modern biochemical and biological engineers in the profession today” and presents the award to “an individual who embodies the spirit of James Bailey, one that is a pioneer, a mentor, an innovator, an integrator of biology and engineering, a teacher, and whose achievements have provided a major impact to the field of biological engineering.” Mikos, the Louis Calder Professor of Bioengineering and Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and a professor of materials science and nanoengineering, will receive the award at the annual meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers Oct. 29-Nov. 3 in Minneapolis, where he will present the James E. Bailey Award Lecture.
