The biennial Sir George Stokes Award is given to a leading analytical scientist awarded for translating research in biomolecular engineering and nanotechnology into new analytical devices and reagents to improve human and animal health.
Professor Tuan Vo-Dinh
Dr. Vo-Dinh is R. Eugene and Susie E. Goodson Distinguished Professor of Biomedical Engineering, Professor of Chemistry, and Director of the Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics, Duke University. After high school in Vietnam, he pursued studies in Europe, receiving a B.S. in physics at EPFL-Lausanne (1970) and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry at ETH-Zurich (1975). Before joining Duke University in 2006, he was Director of the Center for Advanced Biomedical Photonics and a Corporate Fellow, one of the highest honors for distinguished scientists at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). His main research goal is focused on developing advanced technologies to protect the environment and human health. His research has centered on the development, integration and application of biophotonics, molecular spectroscopy, molecular biology and nanotechnology for biomedical diagnostics, photoimmunotherapy, precision medicine, and global health.
Dr. Vo-Dinh has received seven R&D 100 Awards for Most Significant Advance in Research and Development; the Gold Medal Award, Society for Applied Spectroscopy (1988); the Languedoc-Roussillon Award (France) (1989); the Scientist of the Year Award, ORNL (1992); the Thomas Jefferson Award, Martin Marietta Corporation (1992); two Awards for Excellence in Technology Transfer, Federal Laboratory Consortium (1995, 1986); the Lockheed Martin Technology Commercialization Award (1998); the Distinguished Inventors Award, UT-Battelle (2003); the Distinguished Scientist of the Year Award, ORNL (2003); the Exceptional Services Award, U.S. Department of Energy (1997); and the Award for Spectrochemical Analysis, American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Analytical Chemistry (2011). He has authored over 400 publications, is a Fellow of the U.S. National Academy of Inventors and holds over 49 patents.
