Professor Merle A. Battiste

2022 M.A. Battiste Award Announced

We are pleased to announce that the 2022 M. A. Battiste Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, sponsored by Petra Research, was awarded to Chieh-Yu Chang and Zaafir Dulloo. The award recognizes excellence in synthetic organic chemistry by a 3rd year graduate student who has completed their oral qualifying examination. Chieh-Yu’s work is focused on novel applications of atropsiomeric stack ligands in asymmetric catalysis, and Zaafir’s work involves the synthesis and formulation of cyclic thiosulfonates as novel agents against breast cancer.

Congratulations Chieh-Yu and Zaafir!
