DSM Presents 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award

The Prize Goes to Prof. Doros Theodorou, Ph.D.

Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials, is pleased to present the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award in Materials Sciences to Prof. Doros Theodorou, Ph.D., Professor in Materials Science & Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens in Greece.

An international scientific jury – chaired by Dr. Marcus Remmers, Royal DSM’s Chief Technology Officer – recognized the major contributions Prof. Doros Theodorou has made to the field of molecular and meso-scale modeling of polymers. He has earned much praise for his open way of working, and his efforts to educate a whole generation of researchers, thereby making it easier for them to build on his findings. “By using computational science to answer the thousands of ‘what if’ questions surrounding potential new materials, Prof. Doros Theodorou and his team are enabling commercial science companies such as DSM to bring game-changing and often life-changing innovations – like biomedical devices – to market faster and more efficiently,” noted Remmers.

The Professor’s polymer modeling work began in 1985 with the publication of his influential Ph.D. papers on the topic of predicting the structure and mechanical properties of glassy amorphous polymers. Prof. Doros Theodorou, Ph.D. indicates that his next plan is to intensify his research into coarse graining – the study of computational polymer modeling beyond the nano level.

Prof. Doros Theodorou received the honor at DFYP 2018, the international conference on Deformation, Yield, and Fracture of Polymers, in Kerkrade, the Netherlands.He gave an acceptance lecture at the conference on his groundbreaking research work.
