2017 Tarrant Summer Graduate Research Scholarships

We are pleased to announce the recipients of the second annual Tarrant Summer Graduate Research Scholarships. The endowment honors Prof. Paul Tarrant, a member of our department from 1946 to 1981, and this award promotes outstanding research for graduate students working in the Division of Organic Chemistry.

This year’s recipients are Adrian Figg and Danielle Fagnani. Adrian received his B.A. in chemistry from the University of California, Santa Barbara and is a member of Prof. Brent Sumerlin’s research group. His research involves the synthesis of precise polymeric materials using end-group functionalization techniques and dispersion polymerization. Danielle received her B.S. degree in chemistry from Drexel University and is currently a member of Prof. Ron Castellano’s research group. She studies the design, synthesis, and supramolecular properties of novel aromatic systems.

Congratulations to Adrian and Danielle!
