James Blakemore receives DOE Early Career Award

Friday, June 22, 2018

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently selected James Blakemore, assistant professor of chemistry, to receive a $150,000 grant each year for five years as part of the Early Career Research Program.

Now in its ninth year, the program gives exceptional researchers a boost during the crucial early years of their careers.  Blakemore is one of just 84 scientists from across the nation to receive one of these grants this year. 

His research project will focus on “Uranyl capture and activation with Lewis acids and macrocyclic hosts.”  Congratulations Prof. Blakemore!
