Claire Baniel has been selected to receive an American Chemical Society Division of Organic Chemistry (DOC) Undergraduate Award.  For over three years, Claire has been an undergraduate member of the Huang group conducting research aimed at the development of carbohydrate based anti-cancer vaccines.  Claire has presented her research at several regional conferences and Professor Huang expects her to be a co-author on soon to be published papers describing the work.

The DOC Undergraduate Award in Organic Chemistry is intended to recognize senior students who display a significant aptitude for organic chemistry and to encourage further interest in the field.  The award includes a letter of recognition from the ACS Division of Organic Chemistry and an award certificate signed by the DOC chair.  All awardees will be formally announced during the upcoming ACS meeting and then on the DOC web page at

The Department will also recognize Claire during the Chemistry undergraduate awards ceremony to be held later this spring, but before then please join me in congratulating Claire.
