Professor David Ginger, the Raymon E. and Rosellen M. Lawton Distinguished Scholar in Chemistry, has been awarded the Microscopy Society of America Burton Medal for 2012. This Medal is presented annually to an outstanding young scientist under the age of 40 for exceptional achievement in microscopy and microanalysis. Presented annually since 1975, this Award honors the memory of Professor Eli Burton of the University of Toronto who, with his students Hillier and Probus, designed and built one of the earliest electron microscopes in 1938. The award will be presented at the 70th Annual Meeting of MSA in Phoenix, Arizona on July 30, 2012.
The Computers in Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society has awarded Assistant Professor Xiaosong Li the ACS COMP OpenEye Outstanding Junior Faculty Award for his work presented at the 2012 Spring ACS meeting titled “Energy-specific Linear Response TDHF/TDDFT Method for Calculating High-energy Excited States.” The award is presented to up to four outstanding tenure-track junior faculty members based on the novelty and importance of their research. The award aims to assist new faculty members in gaining visibility within the computers in chemistry community.
Daniel Gamelin, the Harry and Catherine Jaynne Boand Endowed Professor of Chemistry, received the 2012 Inorganic Nanoscience Award from the American Chemical Society’s Division of Inorganic Chemistry. The award, sponsored by the University of South Carolina NanoCenter, is meant to recognize sustained excellence, dedication, and perseverance in research in the area of inorganic nanoscience. It will be presented at the 2012 Fall ACS meeting in Philadelphia during a half-day symposium honoring Professor Gamelin.
