The Lemelson-MIT Awards Committee announced that the 2013 Winner of the $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize is Angela Belcher, the W.M. Keck Professor of Energy in Materials Science and Biological Engineering at M.I.T. and a faculty member at the David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT.

According to The Lemelson-MIT Program the Prize "recognizes individuals who translate their ideas into inventions and innovations that improve the world in which we live....Dubbed the "Oscar for Inventors," the Lemelson-MIT Prize is awarded to outstanding mid-career inventors who have developed a patented product or process of significant value to society, which has been adopted for practical use, or has a high probability of being adopted."

The focus of Prof. Belcher’s research is understanding and using the process by which nature makes materials in order to design novel hybrid organic-inorganic electronic and magnetic materials on new length scales.  She then uses these materials in applications as varied as solar cells, batteries, medical diagnostics and basic single molecule interactions related to disease.  Her research is highly interdisciplinary and brings together the fields of inorganic chemistry, materials chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and electrical engineering.
