Professor Karen Dannemiller was named the 2019 Institute for Materials Research Early Career Innovator during the recent Materials Week celebration that took place across Ohio State's Columbus campus. Dannemiller was also a finalist for the same award, given on a university wide basis, by Ohio State's Office of Research.

The citation recognizes university researchers who, though their work, support economic development in Central Ohio via the commercialization of university intellectual property, licensing of technologies, invention disclosures and patent applications and awards.

Dannemiller received her award from Scott Osborne, Ohio State's Vice President of Economic and Corporate Engagement, during the Materials Week award luncheon on May 9, 2019.

Dannemiller and her team of researchers from the Indoor Environmental Quality Laboratory have developed SmART Form, a smart phone application that enables users to easily detect formaldehyde in the indoor environment.
