Nelson Named Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar
Celeste Nelson, Assistant Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering, has been named a 2012 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar. This program of the Dreyfus Foundation supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences through an unrestricted research grant of $75,000. Institutions are limited to only one nomination annually; a total of 13 awards were made in 2012. Nominees are selected for awards based on their scholarly research achievements as independent faculty members, as assessed by distinguished faculty in the chemical sciences who act as the Foundation's reviewers. The five-year Dreyfus award will support Nelson’s work on “The Chemistry of Morphogenesis: Quantitative Analysis of Transcription Factor Kinetics During Tissue Development”.
