2 UT Dallas Researchers Receive Awards from NSF CAREER Program
Two UT Dallas faculty members recently earned National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Awards.
Dr. Anton Malko
, assistant professor of physics, and Dr. Leonidas Bleris, assistant professor of bioengineering, will each receive $400,000 in funding for five years of research into areas of renewable energy and genome editing technologies, respectively.
Malko’s award will advance his research in the development of new hybrid materials that could offer a versatile platform for optoelectronic applications. In particular, they show promise for the next generation of photovoltaic solar cells that will harness sunlight for use as an ecofriendly and renewable energy-generating technology.
