In February, PMSE (American Chemical Society’s Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering
division) announced Dr. Webster and three others as their 2019 PMSE Fellows. They were
inducted as the nineteenth class of PMSE Fellows at the Orlando ACS Meeting during the joint
PMSE/POLY Awards Reception on April 3rd, 2019.
The four awardees include:
- Dr. Dean Webster, Professor and Chair in the Department of Coatings and Polymeric Materials at North Dakota State University
- Dr. Zhiqun Lin, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology
- Dr. Nicholas A. Peppas, Cockrell Family Regents Chaired Professor in the Departments of Chemical, Biomedical Engineering, Pediatrics, Surgery and Pharmacy, at the University of Texas at Austin
- Dr. Jeffrey Pyun, Professor in the Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry at the University of Arizona
The principal objective of the PMSE Division is to promote interest in, and the understanding of, applied polymer science. This is achieved through regular meetings, publications, professional contacts, and discussions. Since its founding, the Division has regularly participated in American Chemical Society National Meetings. The Division frequently co-sponsors symposia with other ACS Divisions and is an active participant in the Macromolecular, Biotechnology, Catalysis & Surface Science, and Materials Science Secretariats.
