The 2010 Jones and Battiste Awards

“This year the 2010 W. M. Jones Award for Originality and Creativity was awarded jointly to Matt Baker and John Ketcham. The award is made based on the presentation and defense of an original research proposal and judged based on three criteria: originality and impact of the idea, quality and clarity of the document, and quality and format of the presentation. The 2010 M. A. Battiste Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, sponsored by Petra Research, was awarded to John Ketcham. The award recognizes excellence in synthetic organic chemistry by a 3rd year graduate student who has completed their oral qualifying examination. Congratulations to John and Matt!”
