Golden Paragraph: J. Sznitman has dedicated his research to uncovering, both through experiments and numerical simulations, respiratory transport phenomena in the deep lungs, with the aim of leveraging such knowledge towards improved strategies for pulmonary drug delivery. He was awarded the Silver Medal for a doctoral thesis at the ETH Zurich and the 2008 Research Award from the Swiss Society of Biomedical Engineering. Following his PhD, he was named a Fellow of the Science & Technology Council at Princeton University. Upon joining the Technion as an assistant professor, he was awarded a Young Scientist Award (2012) from the US-Israel Binational Science Foundation (BSF) and served as Conference Chair at the 2nd International Conference on Computational Fluid Dynamics in Medicine & Biology (2015). Most recently, he was awarded the Young Investigator Award (2015) by the International Society of Aerosols in Medicine (ISAM) for a researcher under 40 and a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant (Horizon 2020). J. Sznitman has been a Guest Editor in the Journal of Biomechanics and serves as an Academic Editor in the journal PLoS One.
