Through a generous donation from entrepreneur David Kabiller, the IIN has established the $250,000 Kabiller Prize in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine and the $10,000 Kabiller Young Investigator Award in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine. Every other year, The Kabiller Prize recognizes individuals who have made a career-long, significant impact in the field of nanotechnology applied to medicine and biology. The Kabiller Young Investigator Award recognizes individuals who, in the last few years, have made discoveries in the same arena with the potential to make a lasting impact.
David Kabiller, a Northwestern trustee and alumnus, is co-founder and head of business development at AQR Capital Management, an investment firm with $135B in assets under management. David is a member of Northwestern University’s Board of Trustees, Chairman of the Executive Council of the University’s International Institute for Nanotechnology (IIN), and has been a guest lecturer at the Kellogg Graduate School of Management, and Harvard Business School. He founded the Kabiller Prize and the Kabiller Young Investigator Award for researchers in nanoscience and nanomedicine, and established a program dedicated to the professional development of Northwestern student-athletes called "NU for Life." He is dedicated to supporting innovative research and technology, and has been an active supporter of the cross-disciplinary field of nanotechnology.
These awards were established not only to recognize the people who are designing the technologies that will drive innovation in nanomedicine, but also to educate and shine a light on the great promises of nanomedicine.
