Polymer Professor Receives Morand Lambla Award


Dr. Bryan Vogt, a professor in the Department of Polymer Engineering, was honored as an outstanding young professor in polymer processing by the 33rd International Conference of the Polymer Processing Society (PPS).

Dr. Vogt has been a part of the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering since 2011, and has been engaged in research advancing next generation battery technology, high performance adhesives, and the prevention of traumatic brain injuries, among other interests. It was Dr. Vogt’s dedication to excellence in his research that earned him a nomination for the Morand Lambla Award.

The award was named for Professor Morand Lambla, a past President of the Society and a pioneer in polymers. Only researchers under the age of 45 are eligible for the plaque and $3,000 check awarded by PPS at the PPS International conference. Those who receive the award present a Plenary Lecture at the conference.

This year’s event took place in Cancun, Mexico, from December 10 until December 14, 2017. It included lectures, symposia, poster presentations, and industry exhibitions, all on the topic of polymer processing. This massive collaboration of industry and academic professionals was the perfect place to honor Dr. Vogt for his hard work and dedication in polymer processing. Congratulations, Dr. Vogt!
