Congratulations to the three KU Chemistry Professors who have been named ACS Fellows by the American Chemical Society for 2013. Susan Lunte, Ralph N. Adams Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Chemistry and Director of the Adams Institute for Bioanalytical Chemistry, Richard Schowen, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, and George Wilson, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, will be feted along with the other 93 fellows at the society’s fall national meeting in Indianapolis this September, in a ceremony hosted by ACS Immediate Past-President Bassam Z. Shakhashiri.
“This is an honor bestowed on members for their outstanding accomplishments in scientific research, education, and public service,” said Shakhashiri in announcing the 2013 class of ACS Fellows. “Their individual contributions to ACS, to science, and to society are hallmarks of distinction in keeping with the ACS mission of advancing the chemical enterprise and its practitioners for the benefit of Earth and its people. Selection as an ACS Fellow greatly honors each individual and also honors ACS. It is also a charge to each fellow to maintain his or her excellence in advancing chemistry and serving society.”
The three join four other KU Chemistry Professors, Kristin Bowman-James, Joe Heppert, Ted Kuwana and Daryle Busch, who were named ACS Fellows in previous years. The fellows program began in 2009 as a way to recognize and honor ACS members for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and ACS.
