NJIT professor receives Presidential Award for breakthrough research with adult stem cells

A young female African-American professor at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) was recognized today by President Bush for research showing that adult stem cells could help patients suffering from spinal cord injuries, bone and cartilage damage and related diseases.

Treena Livingston Arinzeh, PhD, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at NJIT, received the 2003 Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) today during a ceremony at the White House. The award ceremony was presided over by John H. Marburger III, science advisor to the president and director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.

The Presidential Award, established in 1996, is the highest national honor for young scientists and engineers. Eight federal departments and agencies annually nominate young scientists and engineers whose research shows great promise. Arinzeh was nominated for the award by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which funds her research.

"I'm very proud to receive this prestigious presidential award," Arinzeh said. "The award shows that my research in stem-cell based regeneration has great potential, and that it's essential to the scientific education of students, both in college and in high school."

Arinzeh, of Jersey City, was one of 20 out of 400 researchers who recently won an NSF Early Career Development award, and she was the only PECASE winner selected from the Northeast. Arinzeh won the Early Career Award a $400,000 grant over five years in April of 2003. Considered the NSF's most prestigious award for new faculty members, the career awards honor the nation's best young scientific researchers.

Arinzeh is also developing new undergraduate and graduate curricula in the field of tissue engineering, and is doing community outreach to high schools in New Jersey and New York. Arinzeh hopes the above training will help increase the number of minorities and women in the fie
