Several CSN participants received recognition from the UW-Madison Department of Chemistry this Spring. Liz Laudadio (Hamers group, top left) was chosen for the John and Beverly Schrag Analytical Chemistry Outstanding Peer Award, which celebrates a grad student “committed to pursuing excellence in teaching/mentorship, leadership, scientific excellence, and community building.” Kelly Zhang (Hamers group, top middle) and Liz Laudadio each received a Michael W. McCoy Memorial Scholarship (for grad students who “exemplify a love of life, love of people, and love of chemistry”). Finally, Managing Director Mike Schwartz (far right) received a 2019 Graduate Student Faculty Liaison Committee (GSFLC) Mentor Award “to recognize graduate students, postdocs, and academic staff/faculty who have had a profound positive impact on the graduate students of the department.” See the news release for department awards here.
Additionally, Hamers group grad students Zack Jones (bottom left) and Liz Laudadio each won Poster Awards at the UW-Madison Chemistry Graduate Student Poster Session, while Paige Kinsley (bottom right) and Liz Laudadio were awarded travel grants through the Student Research Grants Competition at UW-Madison. Congratulations to all!
