Dr. Jean-Luc Bredas has been named to receive the 2013 Georgia Tech Outstanding Faculty Leadership for the Development of Graduate Research Assistants Award. Jean-Luc’s cutting-edge research in the field of organic electronics and photonics and extensive, well-funded national and international collaborations with academic and industrial partners have immensely contributed to the advancement and training of his graduate research assistants and visiting graduate students. The interdisciplinary character of his research and collaborations, broad expertise of his senior group members, and cultural diversity of his group, provide opportunities for his graduate research assistants and visiting graduate students to not only perform at their highest level and publish their results in high-quality journals, but also learn to work in a team and adapt to different backgrounds and perspectives. This will serve them very well in their future careers! Further, Jean-Luc’s exceptional scientific reputation has significantly contributed to increase the visibility of our School and routinely helped us recruit the highest quality incoming class of GRA’s.
