C. Jeffrey Brinker

Over his thirty five year career at Sandia and UNM, Dr. Brinker has made numerous pioneering contributions to processing, characterization, and understanding of porous and composite nanostructured materials. Moreover, using this body of materials synthesis approaches, Jeff developed new classes of nanoparticle-based therapeutics for treatment of cancer and rare and infectious diseases. Furthermore he was one of the first to recognize and champion the need for multidisciplinary materials research, actively engaging chemists in materials science.
