Glenn C. Micalizio, Ph.D., assistant professor of chemistry, has been named an Eli Lilly Grantee for Organic Chemistry. The award includes a two-year unrestricted grant of $100,000, which Micalizio will use to continue his research on synthesis of complex biologically active organic molecules. He will also participate in the 13th biennial Lilly Grantee Symposium in March 2008 in Indianapolis. Micalizio’s research focuses on simplifying the process of molecular synthesis by developing new ways to form carbon–carbon bonds between molecules.
