Igor Sokolov Promoted to Professor at Clarkson University

Potsdam, NY | Posted on March 5th, 2008

Sokolov received his Ph.D. from the Soviet Bureau of Standards (Russian NIST), St. Petersburg, Russia, and completed his postdoctoral work at the University of Toronto. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Physics since 2000, has an appointment in the Department of Chemistry and Biomolecular Science, is affiliated with Clarkson's Center for Advanced Material Processing (CAMP) and is director of the NanoBio Laboratory (NABLAB).

Sokolov's research interests include biological physics, soft matter, and nanostructured materials. The major focus areas of this research are on the mechanics of human cells, self-assembly of nanostructured functional colloids, nanophotonics, and self-healing materials.

Sokolov has received the Simon Greenberg Foundation Scholarship for human skin related studies, and he has had two presentations selected by the American Institute of Physics to be featured at the 2006 American Physics Society annual meeting.

During his career, Sokolov has been distinguished by the receipt of a number of other awards, including Clarkson's Graham Research Award, the E.L. Ginzton International Fellowship Award from Stanford University, two awards from the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports and Culture of the Japanese Government, Soros Research Awards, and three awards as the best young researcher of the year from the Soviet Bureau of Standards.

Sokolov's research has received support from many agencies, including NSF, NYSERDA, NYSTAR (CAMP), and the ARO. Funds have also been provided by companies like Rohm and Haas (Rodel), Procter and Gamble, CFI Inc, Arkema Group Inc., Ferro, and Perdue Pharma Inc.

Since arriving at Clarkson, he has received 28 grants (principal investigator on 21, and a leading co-principal investigator on two) with total of $4.1 million in supported projects. Currently, Sokolov's research is supported by ARO, Ferro Inc., Purdue Pharma Inc., and NYSTAR. He is a leading co-PI on a $3 million grant from ARO, heading the group studying self-healing materials.

Sokolov has 95 refereed publications, which were cited more than 1, 600 times. He has filed 15 patents, given 67 invited lectures and seminars, and participated in 64 conferences with contributed presentations. Since starting at Clarkson, Sokolov has taught 14 different undergraduate and graduate level courses, supervised 11 graduate students, and served as research mentor for eight undergraduate students.

An overview of Sokolov's research recently appeared in the New Scientist, and his research on human skin received special focus in Chemical and Engineering News. His synthesis of the brightest ever fluorescent particles was highlighted in several news media outlets, including MRS News, APSNews.Org, Science Daily, United Press International, while the image of the particles was selected as LiveScience's image of the day and was chosen as a cover finalist by Materials Today, a popular international materials journal.

His work on aging cells was highlighted on the cover of APS News magazine and has been featured in newspapers throughout the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, Brazil, India, Portugal, and South Africa, and in a variety of popular magazines like Skin & Aging, Advance News, BBC Health News, and others.
