Yesterday, the science Web site EarthSky posted a podcast featuring an interview with chemical engineering professor Joseph DeSimone. They talked with him about green chemistry, his research and transporting medicine straight to the source of disease. You can click the link below or visit the EarthSky page to listen to the podcast.
Last year, DeSimone won the Lemelson-MIT Prize for invention and innovation. The prize, which bills itself as the “Oscar for Inventors,” is just one of many honors he has earned. The News & Observer named him its 2008 Tar Heel of the Year and has a lot of good background on him in its profile.
