Alumnus Prof. Susan Daniel receives Alice H. & Constance E. Cook Award at Cornell

Alumnus Prof. Susan Daniel ((BS (1999), MS(2001), PhD(2005) has received the Alice H. & Constance E. Cook Award at Cornell University for her achievements and contribution to the women in the Cornell community. The Cook Award is named in honor of the late Constance E. Cook, Cornell's first woman vice president, and the late Professor Emeritus Alice E. Cook, founding member of the Advisory Committee on the Status of Women. The Award honors individuals who deserve recognition for their commitment to women's issues and their contributions for changing the climate for women at Cornell.

Dr. Daniel received all three degrees in chemical engineering from Lehigh, completing her PhD under the supervision of Professor Manoj Chaudhury, the Franklin Howes Jr. Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Lehigh.

Daniel’s research focuses on the biological physics of supported lipid bilayers and on their applications as model biological membranes for: (a) sorting, extracting, and compartmentalizing membrane species; (b) establishing protein structure-function relationships; and (c) characterizing lipid-protein interactions.

In 2012, Daniel was the recipient of both the 2012 NSF CAREER award for her early promise and innovative contributions, as well at the Denton Emerging Leader Award, presented to junior faculty members "pursuing high-quality research in any field of engineering or physical sciences, while demonstrating a significant leadership capability and contributing significantly to promote diversity in his/her environment."
