Virginia A. Davis, associate professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Auburn University in Alabama is one of 85 recipients of the prestigious Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers. She received hers for innovative research to advance the understanding of the interrelationships among nanomaterial dispersion microstructure, processing, and properties for macroscale materials; and for outreach activities involving K-12 students and students from underrepresented groups.

Steven K. Lower, associate professor in the School of Earth Sciences and the School of Environment and Natural Resources at Ohio State University, has received the 2009 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE). Lower is working to understand the physical forces that enable bacteria to stick to surfaces. His research could one day lead to new methods for environmental clean-ups and new medical implants that resist bacterial infection. He is among 85 young scientists, 19 of whom were nominated by the National Science Foundation, to win the PECASE award this year.
