MSE Professor, Mohamad Al-Sheikhly, was named a Laureate of the International Irradiation Association (iia) at the 2016 International Meeting on Radiation Processing (IMRP), which took place November 7-11, 2016, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

Dr. Al-Sheikhly has a PhD in Radiation and Biophysical Chemistry from Newcastle University in the U.K. He is the Director of the UMD Laboratory for Radiation and Polymer Science and has been a Guest Scientist at the NIST since 1985. Al-Sheikhly was also the Director of the Maryland University Training Reactor (MUTR) from 1999-2013. His research activities have covered a wide range of disciplines in the areas of radiation effects on materials, radiation chemistry and processing, radiation-nuclear, bioengineering, polymerization, nano composites, and reliability science and engineering. Al-Sheikhly has made major contributions in these fields with an emphasis on the broad topics of radiation and materials engineering. He has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals in the fields of fundamental radiation chemistry and physics, fast kinetics mechanisms, radiation processing, radiation dosimetry, electron synthesis of nano materials, and nuclear materials for Generation IV nuclear reactors; and has delivered more than one hundred invited and keynote presentations at national and international conferences.  

The Laureate Award, established in 1978, is the highest honor that irradiation community members can receive. This award is presented to individuals who have made "outstanding scientific, technological, entrepreneurial, business or academic contribution to the irradiation community and served as a leader or role model for excellence in irradiation."    

The iia is a NGO, supported by the IAEA, that encourages its members to develop safe and beneficial uses of irradiation technology. The IMRP, which takes place every three years, provides a platform for anyone interested in irradiation science and its applications to gather and discuss issues related to radiation processing. 

The next IMRP will take place in 2019, although the location is yet to be determined. For additional information, please visit the iia website.
