Elsa Reichmanis, a professor in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, was selected by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) as a 2013 Distinguished Woman in in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering.
This year, eleven women will receive the honor and will be recognized at the 2013 IUPAC Congress in early August 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. Recipients come from all over the world, including Spain, Russia, Japan, South Africa, and more.
Initiated in 2011 as part of the International Year of Chemistry, the award acknowledges and promotes the work of women chemists and chemical engineers worldwide. Awardees are selected based on excellence in basic or applied research, distinguished accomplishments in teaching or education, or demonstrated leadership or managerial excellence in the chemical sciences.
