Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Todd Hyster, was named a 2018 Sloan Research Fellow. Awarded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the $65,000 grants recognize outstanding scientists and scholars early in their careers. Recipients can use the grants as they wish to further their research.

In response to the honor, Hyster observed, “Thanks to the funds provided by the Sloan Research Fellowship, my group will be able to pursue new avenues of study in our goal to develop new strategies for unlocking novel enzyme function. We hope that these new enzymatic reactions can be used to streamline the synthesis of molecules of biological significance.”
