The National Water Research Institute (NWRI) has named Dr. Mark Sobsey as the 23rd recipient of the NWRI Athalie Richardson Irvine Clarke Prize for excellence in water research.
Dr. Sobsey developed the Aquagenx CBT and is Kenan Distinguished Professor of Environmental Sciences and Engineering in the Gillings School of Global Public Health at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His leadership and contributions to the fields of environmental health microbiology, virology, and water sanitation and hygiene were among the reasons cited for his selection as the 2016 recipient.
“Professor Sobsey is an outstanding choice for the Clarke Prize,” said Jeff Mosher, Executive Director of NWRI. “His research has resulted in tremendous advancements in the water industry, particularly in minimizing the risk of exposure to waterborne disease.”
