Odom Receives Young Professor AwardSeptember 28, 2005
Teri W. Odom, assistant professor of chemistry, is one of 12 scholars internationally to receive a DuPont Young Professor Award for the academic years 2005-2007.
The grant program is designed to provide start-up assistance to promising young, untenured research faculty in the sciences.
Odom was selected for her work in the synthesis, characterization and assembly of nanoscale metal chalcogenide materials, and the nanopatterning and manipulation of these nanoscale building blocks into structures that can exhibit new optical properties.
Odom previously received a research fellowship from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation; a Cottrell Scholar Award from the Research Corporation; the Victor K. LaMer Award from the American Chemical Society; a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award and a Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
