COLLEGE STATION --
Paul Cremer, associate professor of chemistry at Texas A&M University, has won a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award, a $60,000 prize recognizing talented young chemistry faculty.
He was one of only 13 chosen for the 2003 award. Bestowed by the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation, the award is given to strengthen the careers of outstanding young chemistry faculty who show promise in research and teaching. The program was designed to provide discretionary funding to deserving faculty at early stages in their careers. Cremer is 36 years old.
"It was a real honor for me to win this award," he said, "as the other Dreyfus Award winners this year are all really top-notch researchers."
Cremer was nominated by Emile Schweikert, head of the Department of Chemistry at Texas A&M.
Cremer's previous awards include an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship in 2002 and a Beckman Young Investigator Award in 2001.
