Pizzarella Receives 2024 Condit Award

Dominic Pizzarella, E’25, chemical engineering and biochemistry, won the Sears B. Condit Award, which is awarded annually to one student from each of Northeastern’s undergraduate day colleges and is one of the highest honors that a junior or senior at Northeastern University can receive.

Pizzarella is interested in disease research and has worked in the laboratory of Ryan Koppes, associate professor of chemical engineering, for two years studying organ-on-chip technology, with a focus on developing an alternative preclinical screening platform for cardiovascular diseases. Pizzarella finished his first co-op as a bioprocess engineer at Visterra, Inc., and will begin his second co-op at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute as a research technician. He has been active in the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), serving as the student club’s president from 2023 to 2024. Pizzarella has gained a love for research and teaching, which he hopes to apply to a PhD program and work toward his life’s passion of helping people live longer, healthier lives.
