C. N. R. Rao, G. M. Whitesides,
and R. Langer Receive Dan
David Prize: Future
The Dan David Prize has been awarded
annually since 2002 in the categories
Past, Present, and Future. The prize is
financed by the Dan David Foundation
and administered at Tel Aviv University.
It will be presented on May 23. The
review committee for the category
Future includes the Nobel Laureates
A. J. Heeger (Chemistry 2000) and L.
Esaki (Physics 1973). The recipients
must devote 10% of the prize money
of US$ 1 million per category to aiding
PhD students.
C. N. R. Rao is
not only the recipient of the Dan
David Prize, but
also of the Indian
Science Award to
the
value
of
US$ 62 500.
Rao
has
also
been
appointed chair of
the Scientific Advisory Council to the
C. N. R. Rao
Indian Prime Minister. He has been recognized in particular for his research on transition-metal
oxides. Focal points of his research are
ceramic superconductors (La2CuO4),
metal–insulator transitions, and colossal
magnetoresistance. His Review published in 2001 on nanotubes[1a] is one of
the five most downloaded articles from
ChemPhysChem for 2004. He recently
discussed metal carboxylates with open
architectures in Angewandte Chemie[1b]
and reported on InN nanocrystals, nanostrands, and nanotubes in Small.[1c] He is
co-editor of a book on the chemistry of
nanomaterials.[1d]

Chintamani Nagesa Ramachandra
Rao completed his PhD at Purdue University (USA) and earned his DSc at the
University of Mysore (India). From
1959 to 1994 he was a faculty member
at the Indian Institute of Technology in
Kanpur and at the Indian Institute of
Science in Bangalore, and since 1989
has been associated with the J. Nehru
Center
for
Advanced
Scientific
Research in Bangalore, where he is
Linus Pauling Research Professor. Rao
is a member of the Editorial Board of
Chemistry—A European Journal and
the Editorial Advisory Boards of ChemPhysChem and Small.
George M. Whitesides carries out
research at the interface of bio- and
nanotechnology. He
recently reported in
Angewandte Chemie
the generation of
monodisperse particles by using microfluidics.[2a] He is
regarded as a pioneer in the field of
self-organized monolayers. His Review
on soft lithograpy[2b] G. M. Whitesides
from 1998 is one of
the 10 articles most frequently accessed
online since 2003 from Angewandte
Chemie. In the special issue of Advanced
Materials on the occasion of his 65th
birthday, he contributed an article on
the writing of scientific manuscripts.[2c]
His thoughts on the future of chemistry[2d] and materials science[2e] were published in Essays in Angewandte Chemie
and Small, respectively.
George M. Whitesides studied at
Harvard University (USA) and completed his PhD in 1964 at the California
Institute of Technology (USA) with J. D.
Roberts. He was professor at MIT
(USA) from 1963 to 1982, then transferred to the Department of Chemistry of
Harvard University, where he is currently Mallinckrodt Professor of
Chemistry. Whitesides is a member of
the International Advisory Board of
Angewandte Chemie and an honorary
member of the Editorial Advisory
Board of Small.
The award recognizes Robert
Langer (MIT) for his research on biomaterials and tissue engineering, which
focuses on biocompatible polymers for

drug delivery and
synthetic polymers,
as well as polymers
with
shape
memory and materials with switchable surfaces. In his
most recent Communication
in
Angewandte
Chemie he reported
the semiautomated R. Langer
synthesis of a large
library of degradable cationic polymers
for gene delivery.[3a] In 2000 he discussed
in a Review the use of microchips for the
controlled release of drugs.[3b]
Langer studied chemical engineering and completed his bachelors
degree at Cornell University (USA)
and doctorate at MIT. He was a
member of the Science Board of the
American Food and Drug Administration from 1995 to 2002, as Chairman
from 1999 to 2002, and has received several honorary doctorates, for example,
from the ETH Zrich (Switzerland)
and the Technion in Haifa (Israel).
Langer is a member of the International
Advisory Board of Angewandte Chemie.
