Associate Professor of Chemistry, Marino Resendiz, recently received a Henry Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award for 2021. These awards, from the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, support the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences at undergraduate institutions. Based on institutional nominations, the program provides discretionary funding to faculty at an early stage in their careers. The award is based on accomplishment in scholarly research with undergraduates, as well as a compelling commitment to teaching, and provides an unrestricted research grant of $75,000. Resendiz’s award is for the program, “Structure-Function Relationships of Chemically Modified RNA: The Quest to Retain Students in Chemistry.”
