Nicholas Peppas Selected as Kelly Lecture Speaker at Purdue University
Nicholas Peppas, chair of the Cockrell School’s Department of Biomedical Engineering and a professor of chemical engineering and pharmacy at The University of Texas at Austin, has been selected as the 2015 Kelly Lecture speaker at Purdue University.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Kelly Lectures, talks presented annually at Purdue’s School of Chemical Engineering by outstanding engineers and scientists from across broad areas of chemical engineering. Recipients are selected by Purdue faculty in recognition of their contributions to research and education.
Peppas, who is a former distinguished member of Purdue’s faculty, will deliver his lecture in two sessions on April 28 and 29 in Forney Hall on Purdue’s campus.
The Kelly Lectures were established in 1965 by a grant from alumnus Arthur Kelly (BSChE ’24). He was a retired Executive Vice-President and Director of B.F. Goodrich Co, and received an honorary doctorate from Purdue in 1961.
