Jeffrey Rimer, associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, will be recognized at a luncheon later this month.

The award is given by the Welch Foundation to chemical scientists working in Texas and is designed to encourage the fundamental understanding of chemistry. It is named for Norman Hackerman, who served as chairman of the foundation’s scientific advisory board from 1982 to 2006,

“Dr. Rimer is widely recognized as an outstanding teacher and mentor, as evidenced by the deep scholarship and innovation produced in his lab,” said Peter B. Dervan, Bren Professor of Chemistry at the California Institute of Technology and chairman of the Welch Foundation scientific advisory board. “He has become a leader in the emerging field of non-classical crystallization.”
