POTSDAM -- Jan Scrimgeour, an associate professor of physics in Clarkson University's School of Arts & Sciences, has been awarded the John W. Graham Jr. Faculty Research Award for the 2019-2020 academic year. Formal recognition will take place at commencement, which is currently planned for August 15.

The $1,500 research account is presented to "faculty members who have shown promise in engineering, business, liberal arts or scientific research."

Scrimgeour's research uses advanced microscopy techniques to visualize the dynamics of polymers found on the surface of living cells. His current work focuses on the effect of fluids flow in defining the structure and biological function of the biopolymer brushes found on the surface of the blood vessel wall. He received a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award in 2019 to support this work.
