"Daniel Blankschtein"

Dr. E. Daniel Blankschtein in the Department of Chemical Engineering. Professor Blankschtein received the BSc (1977), MSc (1979) and PhD (1983) in physics from Tel Aviv University. He first came to MIT as a Weizmann postdoctoral research fellow in 1982, and then worked in the Department of Physics and Center for Materials Science and Engineering as a Bantrell postdoctoral research fellow from 1984-86 before being named the Texaco-Mangelsdorf assistant professor in chemical engineering in 1986. He was promoted to associate professor in 1990, and received the department's Outstanding Faculty Award in 1991 and 1993. Professor Blankschtein's research areas include the thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of complex fluids such as micellar solutions, liquid-state theory of macromolecular fluids, biosep-arations, and industrial and biomedical applications of colloid and interface science. Recently, his group developed two software programs for industrial use, Predict and Mix, to facilitate the design and optimization of new surfactant formulations. With two MIT colleagues, he demonstrated that some drugs such as insulin can be administered transdermally utilizing ultrasonic waves. Professor Blankschtein received an NSF Presidential Young Investigator award in 1989 and the American Pharmaceutical Association Ebert Prize in 1996.
