As former Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship recipient, Voronov is invited to participate in Humboldt Colloquium entitled “Global Research in the 21st Century: Perspectives of the US Humboldt Network” to be held in Washington, DC on March, 2-4. The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promotes academic cooperation between scientists and scholars from Germany and countries around the world. It grants more than 700 research fellowships and research awards annually to individual researchers who become life-long members of an international community of distinguished researchers, the so-called “Humboldt Network”. Roughly 5,000 “Humboldtians” are currently based in the US, many of them in leading positions at universities, research organizations and other institutions across the country. With this Humboldt Colloquium, the Foundation seeks to recognize the expertise of the Humboldt community in the US, bringing members of the network from different fields and generations together for a dialogue on key topics of international cooperation and internationalization.
Voronov has been awarded Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship in 2000 and Alexander von Humboldt Long-Term Fellowship in 2001 to carry research at University of Bayreuth. His research topic was related to surface modification with polymers for suppressing dewetting. At March Colloquium, Voronov gives a presentation on his current research.

Voronov is invited to participate in the review panel process (March,2-3 in Washington, DC) of the proposals submitted to National Science Foundation. The panel covers proposals related to the field of Protein Engineering, Biocatalysis, Enzyme Engineering submitted to the Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering program in Division of Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems (CBET) at NSF.
The Biotechnology and Biochemical Engineering (BBE) program supports fundamental engineering research that advances the understanding of cellular and biomolecular processes in engineering biology and eventually leads to the development of enabling technology for advanced manufacturing and/or applications in support of the biopharmaceutical, biotechnology, and bioenergy industries, or with applications in health or the environment. Seven proposals were assigned for Voronov’s review during the March panel.
