Prof. Jin-Quan Yu is awarded the 2015 Elias J. Corey Award


At the March 249th ACS National meeting in Denver, Prof. Jin-Quan Yu was awarded the Elias J. Corey Award for Outstanding Original Contribution in Organic Synthesis by a Young Investigator.

Named after the 1990 Nobel laureate, the award recognizes an individual with less than 15 years’ experience since his/her terminal degree, who has accomplished creative research of exceptional merit and value in synthetic organic chemistry. The award is supported by the Pfizer Endowment fund.

Prof. Yu’s work since he moved to Scripps in 2007 has focused on the development of novel catalysts and ligand systems that accelerate C–H activation reactions in an enantioselective fashion.
