Best Poster Prize at Gordon Conference on Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions

Last week, Prof. Hutchison presented a poster on our molecular piezoelectric research, “Donor-Acceptor Molecule Piezoelectrics: Electromechanical Materials from the Bottom Up” at the 2012 Gordon Research Conference on Electron Donor-Acceptor Interactions. The work was picked as one of the three best posters at the conference, and he gave a presentation on Thursday night in one of the coveted “poster talk” slots.

Prof. Hutchison wins Cottrell Scholar Award

Congratulations to Dr. Hutchison for being awarded a 2012 Cottrell Scholar Award by the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA) for his proposal titled “Molecular Piezoelectrics: Building Responsive Electromechanical Materials from the Bottom Up.”

This award is meant to recognize exceptional ability and drive to integrate teaching with research among professors at major research universities. Along with the receipt of a grant, Dr. Hutchison has been accepted into the Cottrell Scholars Collaborative, a group with over 250 like-minded professors focused on the necessity for continued improvements in the teaching of science in an increasingly competitive global arena.

Congratulations Dr. Hutchison!
