Leader in green chemistry: University's Richard Wool elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry
Richard Wool, professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Delaware, has been named a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the United Kingdom’s professional society for chemical scientists and one of the largest such groups in the world. "I remember growing up in Ireland, and in my chemistry studies at University College Cork, being in absolute awe of people who were both members and fellows of the Royal Society of Chemistry," says Wool.
By giving fellow scientists a window into the inner workings of the cell, Maciek R. Antoniewicz, DuPont Young Professor in the University of Delaware Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, fuels many researchers’ work in biotechnology and medicine. For his contribution of experimental, computational and analytic techniques that elucidate cell function, the journal Biotechnology and Bioengineering has selected Antoniewicz to receive its 2015 Daniel I.C. Wang Award.
