Geiger / Ohno Receive 2021 Nobel Laureate Signature Award for Graduate Education in Chemistry
August 15, 2020
Professor Franz Geiger and Paul Ohno (former student) on being awarded the 2021 Nobel Laureate Signature Award for Graduate Education in Chemistry.
This ACS national award is sponsored by Avantor “to recognize an outstanding graduate student and her or his preceptor, in the field of chemistry, broadly defined.” The award was established in 1978 by Avantor (formerly Mallinckrodt Baker Inc.) as the Nobel Laureate Signature Award for a Graduate Student in Chemistry. In 1980 the award was extended to recognize the student's preceptor(s) and its title was changed.
Professor Geiger and Paul will be honored at an awards ceremony at the ACS Spring National Meeting in San Antonio in March 2021.
Notably, Professor Geiger and Paul are the fourth preceptor and student pair from Northwestern Chemistry – may this trend continue!
Congratulations, Professor Geiger and Paul.Back to top
