About Dr. Hase

When William "Bill" Hase began his career in 1970, he and other scientists had just begun to pioneer computer programs to better understand chemical reactions. Fifty years later, the field has changed dramatically, thanks to scientists like Hase who transformed computerized chemistry from a cumbersome process into a useful research tool. But he is remembered for more than just his contributions to chemistry. Hase also is known for his directness and honesty, his willingness to engage in intense discussions and, above all, his caring nature. Hase, a Horn Professor and the Robert A. Welch Chair in the Texas Tech University Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, died on March 23, 2020 at the age of 75.
