JEMAIL: Antenucci, John (MC1959) found Patterson, James [MC1969]



I was very pleased to see James Patterson, author, being interviewed by a panel of four hosts on the The Today Show, NBC. I came in on the tail end of the conversation. He was talking about two new books, “Hope to Die” and “House of Robots”. If any one wants to see it, the show aired on NBC The Today Show November 24, 2014. He had many things to say about the process of Co-authoring which he has been doing for some time.

JHQ: Carbonell, Ruben [MC1969] Elected to the National Academy of Engineering



Ruben Carbonell ’69 Elected to the National Academy of Engineering

The College will honor Carbonell on Monday, Nov. 24 with a plaque unveiling ceremony.

On Monday, Nov. 24, Manhattan College will honor Ruben Carbonell ’69 for his election to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) earlier this year. Carbonell will deliver a lecture and the College’s School of Engineering will celebrate his accomplishments with a plaque unveiling ceremony in the William J. Scala Academy Room in Leo Hall.

“Dr. Ruben Carbonell joins a prestigious group of Manhattan College alumni with his election to the NAE,” said Tim J. Ward, Ph.D., P.E., dean of the School of Engineering. “We are privileged to be able to recognize his accomplishments with the dedication of his plaque in the Scala Academy Room, and we congratulate him on this latest honor.”

As the Frank Hawkins Kenan Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina State University, Carbonell was cited by the NAE for “research and innovation in multiphase reactor design, high-pressure thin-film coating, and novel bioseparation processes.”

Carbonell’s work was instrumental in identifying specific ligands for the removal of the prion protein that is responsible for variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, better known as Mad Cow Disease, in humans. He led the development of a process for making a novel adsorptive filter to be used for the removal of prion protein from human blood during transfusions. One of these ligands is also being used to reduce the risk of prion transmission during intravenous injections of therapeutics such as antibodies derived from pooled human plasma.

“I feel very humbled and honored to be recognized by being elected into the National Academy of Engineering,” Carbonell said. “There are many individuals, students, collaborators, teachers and colleagues that played key roles in my success and I am extremely grateful for their contributions to any accomplishments I have been able to achieve.”

Carbonell is a fellow of both the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and the Industrial and Engineering Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society. His numerous awards at NC State include the Alexander Quarles Holladay Medal for Excellence at NC State, the highest award given to university faculty. He has published more than 230 papers, holds 30-plus patents, and is co-founder of two company startups.

Carbonell earned a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from Manhattan College in 1969, and a Master’s degree and a doctorate degree from Princeton University. He spent 10 years in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of California, Davis, before joining the NC State faculty in 1984.
