We are delighted to honor four chemistry alumni by bestowing them with the 2020 Department of Chemistry Distinguished Alumni Award. Their accomplishments and contributions are a testament to their talents, and to the education and training that they have received at the University of Pittsburgh. We applaud the achievements, leadership, and creativity of Jingguang Chen (PhD 1988), McMahan L. Gray (BS 1980), Jamie McCabe (PhD 2007), Jeremy Walker (PhD 2006).
The biennial Alumni Award Celebration is a cherished event that also provides opportunities for our awardees to interact with the Department faculty, students, and staff and to share their accomplishments through two-day events of award presentations, roundtable discussions, Department tours, and informal meetings with senior undergraduate students. Due to the unfortunate series of COVID-19 related restrictions we will reschedule the event when we can gather and celebrate the accomplishments in a way befitting their achievements.
