The 2018 School of Chemical Sciences (SCS) Teaching Awards recipients have been announced. This year’s recipients represent just a few of the large number of highly dedicated instructors in SCS.
- The 2018 SCS Teaching Awards recipients are listed below.
- Douglas A. Mitchell was one of eleven faculty members who was honored with the Provost's Campus Distinguished Promotion Award for 2018.
- Prof. White has made pioneering contributions to the development of catalysts for selective allylic and aliphatic C—H oxidations that proceed without the requirement for substrate directing groups. Such reactions were previously considered not possible outside enzymatic catalysis.
- A recent award ceremony gave Illinois chemistry professor John Katzenellenbogen a chance to reflect on his long and successful career.
- Professor Jeffrey Moore is the Royal Society of Chemistry Stephanie L. Kwolek Award winner for 2018.
- Recent work from the White Group on a new manganese catalyzed benzylic C—H amination for late-stage C—H functionalization was published in Nature Chemistry last week and was also highlighted in C&E News on Monday, May 8th.
- Scott E. Denmark, a professor of chemistry at the University of Illinois, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, one of the highest professional honors a scientist can receive.
- The first-of-its-kind Molecule Maker Lab, part of the Medical Maker Lab at Illinois, will empower physician-innovators at the Carle Illinois College of Medicine, and citizen scientists from around the world, to create molecules on-demand.
- AACR Award for Outstanding Achievement in Chemistry in Cancer Research goes to John KatzenellenbogenResearch Professor John A. Katzenellenbogen has received the AACR Award for Outstanding Achievement in Chemistry in Cancer Research.
- This March, we recognize a few of the many individuals whose lives and work have inspired and promoted the development of women in the chemical sciences.
- The Department of Chemistry once again ranks sixth overall in US News and World Report 2019 graduate school rankings , and top ten in the analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, and theoretical areas.
- Researchers say they can now produce a vast library of unique cyclic compounds, some with the capacity to interrupt specific protein-protein interactions that play a role in disease.
- Professor Burke has been named University Scholar, a program that recognizes excellence in teaching, scholarship and service.
- In 1990, students and friends of Illinois chemistry professor and alumnus Harold R. Snyder (BS, ’31) established a fund in his memory to support a summer research program for undergraduates interested in organic chemistry.
