National Science Foundation Grant Awarded to SUU Professor
Associate Professor of Chemistry at Southern Utah University, Dr. Jacob Dean, has been awarded the prestigious National Science Foundation (NSF) Faculty Early Career Program (CAREER) grant. This grant supports early-career faculty with the potential to become academic role models in research and education. Dr. Dean secured the top honor of $500,000 over five years to support his research in enhancing light harvesting efficiency in organic materials.
Dr. Dean will enlist three undergraduate research students annually to work alongside him in these efforts. These students will gain hands-on experience that will allow the students to become better prepared to enter the workforce or further their graduate education.
