Professor of chemical engineering
areas of expertise: colloid and interface science; thermodynamics; statistical mechanics; molecular simulation of structured fluids, including micellar solutions and polymers, block copolymers and biomolecules in solution; controlled delivery of active ingredients in pharmaceuticals and consumer products; bioseparations; surfactant-induced skin irritation; transdermal drug delivery using ultrasound and chemical enhancers; environmental and biomedical aspects of structured fluids; transport processes
Daniel Blankschtein is professor of chemical engineering at MIT. He received a PhD in condensed-matter physics from Tel Aviv University and then spent four years at MIT’s Department of Physics (first as a Chaim Weizmann Postdoctoral Fellow and then as a Bantrell Postdoctoral Fellow), conducting research on theoretical and experimental aspects of self-assembling macromolecular fluids.
He has published more than 140 research articles on macromolecular fluids, bioseparations, transdermal drug delivery, and industrial and biomedical applications of colloid and interface science. Blankschtein is the recipient of a Presidential Young Investigator Award, the 1996 Ebert Prize from the American Pharmaceutical Association and the 2000 Dow Corning Award from the Controlled Release Society. He serves as advisory editor of the Marcel Dekker Surfactant Science Series.
