Joel Schneider, an expert in design, synthesis and efficacy of novel amino acids, peptides and proteins, will deliver a lecture on Friday, October 13 at 2 p.m. in the Joe T. and Billie Carole McMillan Auditorium of the newly renovated Ross Hall. The discussion, "De Novo Designed Peptide-Based Materials from Folding-Linked Self-Assembly Mechanisms," will cover Schneider's work on the design of a family of peptides that can be used in tissue regeneration. This lecture is part of the 2006-2007 Chemical Engineering Seminar Program. The university community is invited to attend.

Schneider received his doctorate in chemistry from Texas A&M University and is an associate professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Delaware. He is a recipient of various awards and distinctions including the DuPont Young Faculty Award, National Science Foundation Career Award, Francis Alison Young Scholars Award, and the Texas A&M Excellence in Teaching Award. He is a member the American Chemical Society, the American Peptide Society and the Materials Research Society.
