Meet Our 2022 Recipient

Srinivasa Raghavan

Dr. Srinivasa “Srini” Raghavan, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, is this year’s winner. 

Raghavan is a UMD Distinguished Scholar-Teacher whose research focuses on inventing fluids or soft matter with new properties by structuring the material at the nanoscale using simple, available, and inexpensive precursors. This enables the materials to have practical applications, such as a polymer that converts liquid blood into a gel to stop bleeding, which received U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval and is now produced by Medcura as Rapid-Seal Wound Gel.
