Awards and Accolades

Dr. PoirierBoth TTU and FAPESP have given funding to Dr. Poirier's proposed collaboration with Dr. Brett Carlson, entitled “Riding Quantum Trajectories beyond Born-Oppenheimer: Building better methods for reaction dynamics”. The total grant amount is $20,000.

Dr. PoirierDr. Poirier was chosen as the Spring 2022 Arts and Science Students' Choice Top Faculty.

Dr. Liang Dr. Ruibin Liang has won a Welch Grant for $300,000 for 3 years! The achievement is particularly impressive, given that the number of applications was considerably higher, and the number of grants awarded fewer, than in recent years.

Trophies The Gorden group has officially been notified of funding to be awarded $650,000 from the National Science Foundation for their project on "NSF2154848 - LnIII Complexes Displaying ErIII-centered Upconversion Emission in Solution and the Solid State with YbIII, NdIII or a Porphyrin-based ligand as Activators."+ More

Dr. Li Guigen Li's paper, “Asymmetric [4 + 2] cycloaddition synthesis of 4H-chromene derivatives facilitated by group-assisted-purification (GAP) chemistry”, was selected by the Royal Society of Chemistry as a 2021 HOT RSC Advances article. You can find his publication in the link below as well as the others selected for this honor: RSC Advances HOT Article Collection
