Professor Ragnar-Olaf Buchweitz was recently awarded the prestigious Humboldt Research Award from Germany.

From their website: “The award is granted in recognition of a researcher’s entire achievements to date to academics whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had a significant impact on their own discipline and who are expected to continue producing cutting-edge achievements in the future.”

In a recent article for the University of Toronto’s ‘the Bulletin’ Professor Buchweitz was quoted as saying “I was delighted that I was awarded this prize.  I am also humbled by this wonderful recognition by the German scientific and academic community.”  The full article can be found at the bottom of the second page of ‘the Bulletin’ found here.

Professor Buchweitz was also featured in an article for the UTSC news that talks about his research and how it is currently being used.  That article can be found here.

We are proud to recognize this great achievement by Professor Buchweitz and wish him the best in his continued research!
