Congratulations to George Wilson for being named the 2015 recipient of the Electrochemistry Award presented by the Division of Analytical Chemistry for the American Chemical Society. Wilson, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Chemistry and former associate vice provost for research at the University of Kansas, focused his research on developing a blood glucose sensor for patients with diabetes that can be injected under the skin.
The recipient of the Electrochemistry Award receives a plaque and $2500. Wilson joins 25 other recipients of this award since 1988, including Ralph "Buzz" N. Adams (1924-2002) who was named in 1989. The award is given to someone who has advanced the field of electrochemical analysis through one of the following means:
- "Conceptualization and development of unique instrumentation that has made a significant impact on the field.
- Development of novel and important instrumentation.
- Elucidation of fundamental events or processes important to the field.
- Authorship of important research papers and/or books that have had an influential role in the development of the field. role in the use of chemical instrumentation"
