CORVALLIS, Ore. - ONAMI Signature Researcher and OSU Professor Dr. Stacey Harper today was announced as the 2012 recipient of Oregon State University’s LL Stewart Faculty Scholars Award.
As an ONAMI Signature Research Scientist, Dr. Harper’s research utilizes a novel, multidisciplinary approach and state-of-the-art technology to address important questions arising from human exposures to nanomaterials as potential causes of human environmental diseases. In 2011, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) awarded Dr. Harper the Outstanding New Environmental Scientist Award to advance her work in nanotoxicity.
With funding from the LL Stewart Faculty Scholars award, Dr. Harper proposes to develop a “Nanotechnology Environmental Health and Safety (NanoEHS) Personnel Certification Program” at OSU. The development of this certificate will provide dynamic workforce training to serve a rapidly growing field and be the first of its kind in the U.S.
