Biography

C. Jeffrey Brinker, Ph.D. is a Distinguished and Regent’s Professor of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering and Molecular Genetics and Microbiology and a member of the Cancer Center at the University of New Mexico, and is a Fellow at Sandia National Laboratories. Jeff attended Rutgers University where he received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Ceramic Science and Engineering. He joined Sandia National Laboratories as a Member of the Technical Staff in 1979 and was appointed Distinguished National Laboratory Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of New Mexico in 1991. Since 1999, he has been jointly employed at SNL where he is one of four Sandia Fellows and at UNM where he is Distinguished and Regent’s Professor of Chemical and Nuclear Engineering. Brinker has been recognized for his work in sol-gel processing and its extension to self-assembly of porous and composite nanostructures, and recently novel types of biotic/abiotic materials, including porous nanoparticle supported lipid bilayers used for targeted delivery of a spectrum of therapeutics. His awards include R&D100 Awards in 1996, 2007, 2008 and 2010, the ACS Award in the Chemistry of Colloidal Materials, the DOE Ernest O. Lawrence Memorial Award in Materials Science, and the 2003 MRS Medal. In February 2002 he was elected into the U.S. National Academy of Engineering and in 2009 he was elected Fellow of the Materials Research Society, where he serves on the Board of Directors.
