Clarke Prize for water science and technology to Yale's Elimelech

New Haven, Conn. -- The 2005 Athalie Richardson Irvine Clarke Prize for outstanding achievement in water science and technology will be presented to Professor Menachem Elimelech of Yale University on July 7 in a ceremony in Dana Point, Calif. by the National Water Research Institute (NWRI).

This distinguished award is one of only a dozen water prizes awarded worldwide. It is awarded annually to an outstanding individual who has demonstrated significant contributions in one of the following areas: the discovery, development, improvement, and/or understanding of the issues associated with water quality, quantity, technology, or public policy. The award includes a gold medallion, a $50,000 honorarium and an invitation to deliver the 2005 Clarke Lecture.

The NWRI, established in 1991, is renowned for facilitating and funding water-related research projects in the U.S. and abroad. Some of its critical research topics and interests in the world of water include ultraviolet disinfection, membranes, salinity management and desalination, riverbank filtration and education.

Elimelech, the Roberto C. Goizueta Professor of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, is a specialist in the physiochemical processes in natural water and in engineered aquatic systems. He directs the Yale Environmental Engineering Program, emphasizing a multidisciplinary approach to solving environmental problems. His research focuses on three areas: transport and fate of microbial pathogens in aquatic environments; fundamentals and applications of membrane separation processes for water quality control; and dynamics of colloidal particles and biocolloids in aquatic systems.

A native of Israel, Elimelech served in the Israeli Air Force before earning his B.S. and M.Sc. at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem and his Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University (1989). He taught 1989-1998 at the University of California at Los Angeles, where he was professor and vice chair in the Depa
