What is Milton Kerker Chair?

Laboratory of Bioelectronics & Bionanotechnology

The very first result on a pacemaker activated by an implantable biofuel cell was published in our recent paper:
M. Southcott, K. MacVittie, J. Halámek, L. Halámková, W.D. Jemison, R. Lobel, E. Katz,
Pacemaker powered by implantable biofuel cell operating under conditions mimicking human blood circulation system – Battery not included.
Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics
15, 6278-6283.
Our research on implanted biofuel cells was highlighted by G4 TV channel - see the video clip here: "How To Harvest Electricity From Lobsters", by New Scientist - see the video clip here:  "How to hack a snail to create a living battery" and by Russian TV.

Our recent paper about "a cyborg-snail":
L. Halámková, J. Halámek, V. Bocharova, A. Szczupak, L. Alfonta, E. Katz, J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2012, 134, 5040-5043 has been highlighted by Nature, Science, Scientific American, New Scientist (video),
ACS Podcast (text and audio file), New York Times and by many other newspapers, radio, TV, web sites, etc (see more here).

  H-index reached 78 on January 8, 2015

On February 10, 2011, Thomson Reuters released data identifying the world’s top 100 chemists
over the past 10 years as ranked by the impact of their
published research -
Evgeny Katz (Clarkson University) was included in the list as # 63
from approximately a million chemists indexed by Thomson Reuters.

Evgeny Katz was also included in the list of top cited chemists with the worldwide rank 384
based on his H-index of 62 (estimated in 2011).

Two papers received citations more than 1000 times !!!

Evgeny Katz has been inducted into the school's Million Dollar Club for the significant amount (over 1 million) of external funding that his research activities have garnered.
