Robert Cava, the Russell Wellman Moore Professor of Chemistry at Princeton, received a Humboldt Research Award from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Germany. The award is presented to up to 100 non-German scientists each year who are nominated by their peers in Germany. With the prize, Cava — who is well known for his work in materials chemistry — will embark on an extended research stay with his longtime collaborators at the Johannes Gutenburg University of Mainz in Germany.
