Dr. Jeffrey Dick, assistant professor of chemistry, will receive the 2023 Royce W. Murray Young Investigator Award. This award is presented by The Society for Electroanalytical Chemistry (SEAC) and recognizes outstanding research in the field of electroanalytical chemistry for recipients who have received their PhD within the last 10 years. Dr. Dick’s research focuses on a developing nanoelectrochemical tools to understand how chemistry changes in very tiny volumes, including single cells.
Dr. Royce W. Murray was a chemistry professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and spent his career conducting research to help progress the field of electrochemistry and electroanalytical chemistry. Along with teaching, Murray was a mentor and supported young electroanalytical chemists. Receiving an award named after Dr. Murray, Dr. Dick shared that he is “honored to be the first to bring this award to UNC.”
The award will be presented during the SEAC award symposium at Pittcon 2023, which will take place March 18-22 in Philadelphia, PA.
