Prof. Jacek Lipkowski

A University of Guelph professor known for his groundbreaking work has won a prestigious award from the International Society of Electrochemistry. Prof. Jacek Lipkowski will accept the Bioelectrochemistry Prize of ISE Division 2.


“I am very honoured and pleased by this award because it recognizes our very recent research performed in the last five to six years,” said Lipkowski, Department of Chemistry.


“It involved a significant realignment of our research directions and application of new methodologies and hence I am pleased that this was successful.”


Lipkowski will receive the award on Aug. 25 during the ISE’s 67th annual meeting at The Hague, Netherlands. He will also lecture on his work at next year’s conference scheduled for Providence, Rhode Island.


Lipkowski, who has been with U of G since 1983, is a pioneering researcher in electrochemical surface science. He has published more than 200 papers and has won national and international awards for his research.


He studies the adsorption of ions and neutral molecules at electrified interfaces. Ultimately, his research might apply to biomedical fields from implant biocompatibility to cell adhesion and fusion to drug design.
