All awards consisted of $5,000 and a certificate. Congratulations to these stellar faculty!

Two members of the College of Science alumni earned awards as well.

Chemistry alumnus Dr. Gary A. Molander won the Herbert C. Brown Award for Creative Research in Synthetic Methods, sponsored by the Purdue Borane Research Fund and the Herbert C. Brown Award Endowment. Dr. Molander is the Hirschmann-Makineni Professor of Chemistry and Department Chair at University of Pennsylvania, and he is a former student of the late Dr. Herbert C. Brown, who was a former Nobel Laureate and keystone of the Purdue Chemistry program.

The ACS Award for Distinguished Service in the Advancement of Inorganic Chemistry, sponsored by Strem Chemicals, went to Kim R. Dunbar, now at Texas A&M University. She was a Ph.D. student with Richard Walton and graduated in 1984.
