Gates & Jurisson Named ACS Fellows

The American Chemical Society has named the 2016 class of ACS fellows, which includes two chemistry professors at the University of Missouri. Kent Gates, the Herman G. Schlundt Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, and Silvia Jurisson, professor of chemistry and radiology, are among the 57 scientists who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in chemistry and made important contributions to ACS, the world’s largest scientific society.

The 2016 fellows will be recognized at a ceremony and reception August 22 during the society’s 252nd national meeting and exposition in Philadelphia. The ASC Fellows Program was created by the organization in 2008 to “recognize members of ACS for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and the society.”
