Professor Thomas Hamann has received a 2013 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award from the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation. The Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Awards Program supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences. Based on institutional nominations, the program provides discretionary funding to faculty at an early stage in their careers. Criteria for selection include an independent body of scholarship attained within the first five years of their appointment as independent researchers, and a demonstrated commitment to education, signaling the promise of continuing outstanding contributions to both research and teaching. Tom was nominated by Professor Robert Maleczka as Chair of the Department of Chemistry and supported with letters from Professors Daniel Nocera (Harvard University and Visiting Hannah Chair at Michigan State University), Gerald Meyer (Chair, The Johns-Hopkins University), and Joseph Hupp (Northwestern University). Congratulations Tom!
