Berkeley chemistry professor Ting Xu and co-authors have won the Arthur K. Doolittle Award of the Polymetric Materials: Science and Engineering, a division of the American Chemical Society. Xu, who holds a joint appointment with the Berkeley School of Engineering’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering, wrote the award-winning paper along with her research group members Andrew Presley and Joseph Chang.

The award is given to the authors of an outstanding paper presented before the Division at each national meeting of the American Chemical Society. This year the meeting was held in San Diego, CA, from March 25-29.

Research in Xu’s group takes advantage of the recent developments in de novo protein design and peptidomimetics, polymer science and nanoparticle synthesis. Xu’s group uses designed peptides and proteins, along with block copolymers, to generate nanostructured materials.
