Argonne Chemist Wins AWIS Innovator Award
July 31, 2009

The Chicago chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS) granted its third annual Innovator Award to Tijana Rajh, group leader of the Nanobio Interfaces research group at Argonne National Laboratory’s Center for Nanoscale Materials. The award honors contributions to science in the Chicagoland area. Rajh received the award for her work studying semiconductor nanoparticles, a field with applications from solar power to cancer research.

She is the third scientist to be recognized by the Association for Women in Science Chicago Area Chapter, a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing women in the field of science. The group formed in 1971 and has since expanded nationwide. Chapters advocate for women in all scientific fields, publicize women’s achievements, and hold educational workshops for students. The Innovator Award recognizes achievements in science in the Chicagoland area.

The CNM at Argonne is one of the five DOE Nanoscale Science Research Centers (NSRCs), premier national user facilities for interdisciplinary research at the nanoscale. Together the NSRCs comprise a suite of complementary facilities that provide researchers with state-of-the-art capabilities to fabricate, process, characterize and model nanoscale materials, and constitute the largest infrastructure investment of the National Nanotechnology Initiative. The NSRCs are located at DOE’s Argonne, Brookhaven, Lawrence Berkeley, Oak Ridge and Sandia and Los Alamos National Laboratories. For more information visit the DOE NSRC website.
