2013 Keaffaber Scholar Award

“Congratulations to Anthony Quartararo who has been named the recipient of the inaugural Keaffaber Scholar Award. The award has been made possible through the generosity of Dr. Jeffrey Keaffaber, a longtime friend and supporter of the Department of Chemistry. Dr. Keaffaber received his Ph.D. from the Department in 1989 (with Prof. William Dolbier) and pursued a career in industry, entrepreneurship, and consulting; he wore many hats when he returned to the Department in 2003 including as a senior lecturer, undergraduate advisor, and pioneer of new teaching initiatives. Dr. Keaffaber maintains a close relationship with our students and faculty in his new role as co-owner of The Brew Spot Caf� in Gainesville.”
