Timothy Newhouse named a 2019 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar
Associate professor of chemistry Timothy Newhouse was selected as one of the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholars for 2019.
The honor is awarded by the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation to early-career faculty who are deeply committed to both outstanding scholarship and education in the chemical sciences. Each scholar receives an unrestricted research grant of $100,000.
The support comes in recognition of the great potential of the Newhouse Group’s approach utilizing computational chemistry methodologies to synthesize neurologically active small molecules. This novel combination of computational chemistry and laboratory synthesis may assist in the strategic planning of small molecule synthesis.
“The foundation's generous support will provide the backing to continue to fund high-risk and high-reward projects. The ones who deserve the credit for this award are the passionate team members I have had the pleasure to work with,” Newhouse said.
The foundation has been operating since 1970 and has awarded over $50 million to emerging leaders in the chemical sciences. The financial support is part of the effort “to advance the science of chemistry, chemical engineering, and related sciences as a means of improving human relations and circumstances around the world.” For more information about the program and the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, see its website.
