Charles M. Lieber receives the first Nano Research Award

Springer and Tsinghua University Press honor one of the world’s leading scientists

12274
The first Nano Research Award will be given to Charles M. Lieber, one of the world’s leading scientists in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The award, which is presented for the first time this year, is sponsored by Tsinghua University Press (TUP) and Springer and is accompanied by US $10,000. Prof. Lieber has been invited to give a keynote speech at the 2014 Sino-US Nano Forum in Tianjin, China.
Charles Lieber receives the award in recognition of his extraordinary contribution to nanoscale science and technology. His seminal contributions on the rational growth, characterization and applications of a broad range of nanometer diameter wires and heterostructures has defined a new paradigm of nanoscience, and is producing profound impact on diverse technological areas ranging from computing, communications, optoelectronics and energy science to biology and medicine.
Charles Lieber is the Mark Hyman Professor of Chemistry at Harvard University. He serves on the editorial and advisory boards of many science and technology journals. With over 350 papers in peer-reviewed journals and more than 35 patents, his pioneering work has had a defining influence on the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. His publications have been cited more than 70,000 times, his top ten papers have been cited more than 21,000 times, and his h-index (impact factor) is 121. Based on his citation impact scores, Lieber was ranked #1 in chemistry for the decade 2000-2010 by Thomson Reuters. He is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Fellow of the Materials Research Society and American Chemical Society (Inaugural Class), Honorary Fellow of the Chinese Chemical Society and a member of numerous other societies.
The editorial board of the journal Nano Research, along with TUP and Springer, has established the annual Nano Research Award in order to recognize outstanding contributions to nano research by an individual scientist. The winner's name and work will be featured in Nano Research and other media by Tsinghua University Press and Springer. The winner is also invited to publish a feature article on his or her award-winning topic in Nano Research.
Nano Research is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary research journal launched by TUP and Springer in 2008. The journal offers a rapid publication route for comprehensive reviews as well as original research communications or full papers on all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Tsinghua University Press (www.tup.tsinghua.edu.cn). As an integral part of China’s most prestigious university — Tsinghua University, Tsinghua University Press (TUP) (www.tup.tsinghua.edu.cn) has now grown to be one of the leading academic and higher education publishers in China since its founding in 1980. With about 3000 new titles released every year and an annual turnover of more than 1 billion RMB, TUP publishes in extensive subject areas: science, technology and medicine; business and management; humanities and social sciences, etc.
Springer Science+Business Media (www.springer.com) is a leading global scientific, technical and medical publisher, providing researchers in academia, scientific institutions and corporate R & D departments with quality content via innovative information products and services. Springer is also a trusted local-language publisher in Europe – especially in Germany and the Netherlands – primarily for physicians and professionals working in healthcare and road safety education. Springer published roughly 2,200 English-language journals and more than 8,000 new books in 2012, and the group is home to the world’s largest STM eBook collection, as well as the most comprehensive portfolio of open access journals.
