Metrohm USA Awards 2016 Young Chemist Award

Metrohm USA is pleased to announce the winner of the 2016 Young Chemist Award, Amay Bandodkar. Amay is completing his Ph.D. at the University of California San Diego where he works under the supervision of Professor Joseph Wang, SAIC Endowed Professor and Chair of the NanoEngineering Department.

Amay’s research focuses on developing next generation of wearable sensors that, unlike today’s wearable devices, possess the power to continuously monitor physiologically relevant chemicals directly on the human body in a completely non-invasive fashion.

He is developing specially engineered printable inks for fabricating smart printed devices that can be easily stretched and self-heal when mechanically damaged. These inks are then used to develop non-invasive wearable electrochemical devices for various healthcare applications.

This is the fourth year that Metrohm USA will give the $10,000 Young Chemist award, continuing their philanthropic support and commitment to the advancement of science. Amay will present a short overview of his work at Metrohm’s on-booth event at Pittcon 2016 on March 8 at 3 pm.

Giving back to the scientific community is a part of our mission at Metrohm USA. Every year we see an increase in the number of applications and a rise in the level of achievement demonstrating the ingenuity and passion young researcher have for solving very practical problems. We are proud to support the next generation of scientists.
