Samuel I. Stupp

Samuel I. Stupp, is a Board of Trustees Professor of Materials Science and Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago, IL, he is best known for his work on supramolecular chemistry. One of his most notable discoveries is a broad class of peptide amphiphiles that self-assemble into high aspect ratio nanofibers with extensive applications in regenerative medicine, he has made significant contributions to the fields of supramolecular chemistry and organic electronic materials. He has over 300 peer-reviewed publications and was one of the 100 most cited chemists in the 2000-2010 decade. Stupp was born in Costa Rica, the son of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, he attended high school at Liceo de Costa Rica, in 1968 came to the United States to attend UCLA, where he graduated with a BS in chemistry in 1972. He subsequently went to Northwestern University and earned a PhD under Stephen Carr in 1977, studying the molecular origins of electrical polarization in polymers. Stupp began his independent research career in 1977 as an assistant professor at Northwestern University, but after three years moved to UIUC where he held appointments in Materials Science and Engineering and Bioengineering.

At UIUC his research focused on self-assembly. In 1999, Stupp returned to Northwestern University as a Board of Trustees Professor of Materials Science and Medicine. In 2000 he was appointed the Director of the newly formed Institute for BioNanotechnology in Medicine at Northwestern’s medical school campus in downtown Chicago. One of Stupp’s major discoveries occurred soon after his arrival at Northwestern. In 2001, Stupp and postdoctoral fellow Jeffrey Hartgerink discovered a new class of peptide amphiphiles with the ability to self-assemble into nanoscale filaments that mimic components of the extracellular matrix. Consisting of a hydrophobic alkyl tail grafted onto specially designed peptide sequences, these peptide amphiphiles spontaneously form high-aspect ratio nanofibers in water that can present high densities of biological signals on their surface; these molecules have revolutionized the field of bioactive materials for regenerative medicine, with potential applications in bone and cartilage regeneration, angiogenesis for ischemia or peripheral artery disease, cancer therapy, novel therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, stem cell differentiation, spinal cord injury and many other areas.

In addition, Stupp’s laboratory is pursuing fundamental research on hierarchical self-assembly, novel materials for solar energy, self-assembling catalytic systems. Stupp has published over 300 papers in respected peer-reviewed scientific journals such as Science, Journal of the American Chemical Society, PNAS, he holds over 20 patents, has started a company, Nanotope, to commercialize his group’s peptide amphiphile technology. Stupp was listed by Thomson Reuters as one of the top 100 most cited chemists of the 2000-2010 decade, he has mentored hundreds of graduate postdocs throughout the course of his career. Stupp has won numerous awards over the course of his career, including the Department of Energy Prize for Outstanding Scientific Accomplishment in Materials Chemistry, the Humboldt Award for Senior U. S. Scientists, the Materials Research Society Medal Award and the American Chemical Society Award in Polymer Chemistry, he is a fellow of several professional societies including the Materials Research Society, the World Biomaterials Congress, the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Physical Society.

He holds an honorary degree and a distinguished professorship from the Eindhoven University of Technology and an honorary degree from the National University of Costa Rica. He has been a visiting professor at the University of Strasbourg and held the Juliot Curie Professorship at École Superieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles and the Merck-Karl Pfister Visiting Pressorship in Organic Chemistry at MIT, he has served on numerous scientific advisory boards in the US and Europe and is a member of multiple scientific journal editorial boards. Most on February 9, 2012, he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering. In 2001 he chaired the first review of the National Nanotechnology Initiative at the request of the White House Economic Council and the National Academy of Engineering, he gave one of the plenary lectures at the 2012 spring meeting of the American Chemical Society on the subject of “Chemistry for Regenerative Medicine”, was awarded the 2013 Ronald Breslow Award for Achievement in Biomimetic Chemistry by the ACS.

Stupp married Dévora Grynspan in 1972. They reside in Chicago, IL, his sister, Roxana Stupp resides in Chicago and works as the Director of the Disability Resource Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
