Bob Sievers

Professor Bob Sievers and his students study air and water quality in the American West. He and his students specialize in studying aerosol particles so small that their diameter is one-hundredth the width of a human hair, and can enter the alveoli of human and animal lungs. They have learned how to synthesize and coat aerosol particles of pharmaceuticals so that drugs can be administered by inhalation rather than by needle injection and they have been awarded several patents. Professor Sievers received CU’s Robert Stearns Award in 2003 and several scientific awards earlier.
