Todd Sulchek, professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, has been named a Regents’ Innovator by the University System of Georgia (USG) Board of Regents. Regents’ titles are the highest distinction granted by the Board to honor contributions in research and innovation.

In total, the Board recognized 12 Georgia Tech faculty members with Regents’ titles and reaffirmed Regents’ titles for four others. 

Sulchek's research focuses primarily on the measurement and prediction of how multiple individual biological bonds produce a coordinated function within molecular and cellular systems. His work aims to optimize molecular drug targeting, improve chemical and biological sensors, and develop more efficient countermeasures for pathogens.

Sulchek also co-founded CellFE, which has developed a scalable, high-throughput microfluidic device for the efficient delivery of gene-editing molecules into cells.

Sulchek joined Georgia Tech in 2008 after serving as a staff scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. He received a B.A. in physics and mathematics from Johns Hopkins University in 1996, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in applied physics from Standford University in 2000 and 2002, respectively.
