Associate Professor of Chemistry Jefferson Knight has been named a 2018 Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar by the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation. This competitive award recognizes faculty from undergraduate-centered departments for their outstanding accomplishments in research and education in the chemical sciences. Knight joins Professor Hai Lin as CU-Denver faculty who have received this distinction. The award includes a $60,000 grant to support his research and/or professional development for up to 5 years.

Lin receives RCSA Cottrell Plus SEED Award for 2018
Research Corporation for Science Advancement recently announced the three winners of its competitive Cottrell Plus SEED (Singular Exceptional Endeavors of Discovery) Awards for 2018, including Chemistry Professor Hai Lin. The Cottrell Plus SEED Award supports the very first instances of exceptionally creative new research or educational activities with potential high impact. Lin’s $50,000 award will aid in his efforts to develop advanced computing methods that combine artificialneural networks and quantum chemistry to conduct accurate molecular dynamics simulations for the study of how a proton (a positively charged hydrogen ion, also known as "H+") will "dance" from one place to another while changing partners (such as water, halide ions, and titratable residues) along the way.
