Chemistry graduate student Aurora Ginzburg has been selected for a 2019 Student Leadership in Sustainability Award. The awards program recognizes individuals whose contributions deepen the University of Oregon’s culture of sustainability across a range of institutional activities.
Aurora is a doctoral student in the Hutchison lab.
The award is granted in recognition of a researcher’s overall achievements and whose fundamental discoveries, new theories, or insights have had and will continue to have a significant impact on their discipline.
The Alexander von Humboldt Foundation promotes academic cooperation between German scientists and scholars with their counterparts from around the world. Award recipients are encouraged to collaborate on research projects with colleagues in Germany. Professor Johnson will be working with Prof. Dr. med. Wolfgang Bensch of Christian-Albrechts-University Kiel in Germany on projects involving solid state and surface chemistry, and material synthesis.
Four Chemistry and Biochemistry majors are among the 2018 recipients of the UO’s Vice President for Research and Innovation summer research fellowships.
