The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation has awarded a Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award to Dwight Stoll, an assistant professor of chemistry at Gustavus Adolphus College (St. Peter, Minnesota). The Dreyfus awards supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences at undergraduate institutions. Based on institutional nominations, the program provides discretionary funding to faculty at an early stage in their careers. The award is based on accomplishment in scholarly research with undergraduates, as well as a compelling commitment to teaching, and provides an unrestricted research grant of $60,000.
Stoll, a member of LCGC’s editorial advisory board, plans to use a portion of the award money for activities related to the development of tools for learning separation science (such as the development of simulators). The remainder of the award money will go to research in fundamental studies related to the advancement of two-dimensional liquid chromatography.
