- George Khoury, James Smadbeck, and Prof. Christodoulos A. Floudas were awarded second prize at the 9th annual Innovation Forum for their platform for computational peptide-based drug design with an expanded modified amino acid chemical space. See the story on the Princeton Engineering webpage, the Princeton Chemical and Biological Engineering Website, the Princeton University Website, and a video of the submission.
- Eric First was selected as a Featured Fellow by the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship, as reported on NDSEG's Facebook and Twitter pages, for his work on carbon capture technology.
- It has been announced that Prof. Christodoulos A. Floudas will recieve an honorary doctorate degree from Abo Akademi University in Turku, Finland on May 23. See the Princeton School of Engineering website, the Chemical and Biological Engineering department website, the Abo Akademi press release (in Swedish) for more information.
- Research inventions from the Floudas group were featured at Celebrate Princeton Invention, an annual showcase of research innovations, and highlighted on Princeton University's website.
- George Khoury was awarded 1st Prize in the Poster Competition and 2nd prize in the Oral Research Talks at the 2013 Princeton Research Symposium (PRS). For more information see the news article on the Princeton University Homepage or on the Princeton Chemical and Biological Engineering website.
- George Khoury was awarded the Air Products Second Proposition Award. This award is given for the most outstanding Second Proposition approved that year, as assessed by the faculty.
