Timothy E. Long

received his B. S. in 1983 from St. Bonaventure University, followed by his Ph.D. in 1987 from Virginia Tech. He spent nearly a decade as a research scientist at Eastman Kodak Company before returning to Virginia Tech as a Professor in the Department of Chemistry. He has over 40 patents in the field of macromolecular science and engineering, published 22 book chapters, and has recently exceeded 220 peer-reviewed publications. He has been a faculty member in the Department of Chemistry since 1999 and serves as the Director of Macromolecules and Interfaces Institute (MII) at Virginia Tech.

He has received many prestigious honors in his field of polymer chemistry recently, including the 2015 Virginia Outstanding Scientist Award, American Chemical Society (ACS) PMSE Cooperative Research Award and ACS POLY Mark Scholars Award, as well as the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council (PSTC) Carl Dahlquist Award in 2011, Virginia Tech’s Alumni Award for Research Excellence (AARE) in 2010, 2009 ACS Fellow, and invited organizer of the Gordon Research Conference – Polymers, and Chair, ACS Polymer Division.

Prof. Long maintains a vigorous partnership with diverse industries, including BASF, Elevance, IBM, 3M, Kimberly Clark, Henkel, Toray, Bayer, Kraton Polymers, SABIC, Exxon Mobil, and Solvay. He has maintained a 20-member interdisciplinary research group and has been awarded ~ $41M in research funding over the past 16 years at Virginia Tech. His group’s continuing research goal is to integrate fundamental research in novel macromolecular structure and polymerization processes with the development of high performance macromolecules for advanced technologies, including drug and gene delivery, sustainable feed stocks, adhesives and elastomers, block copolymers and living polymerization, and biomaterials for health and energy.
