Former FSU Graduate Student Named an Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellow

Brian Gold, a 2014 PhD from the Alabugin Lab was selected as one of 20 recipients of the 2016 Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award. Brian published 15 papers on route to his PhD and developed the first stereoelectronic approach to the control of alkyne/azide click cycloadditions. He received 2014 FSU Graduate Research and Creative Activity Award before continuing his career at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with Ronald Raines.

The Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellows Award Program supports postdoctoral scholars with the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in chemistry and the life sciences, to assist in their transition from “mentored yet independent” postdoctoral projects to an independent, tenure-track position. These individuals are expected to become the next generation of leaders and innovators in science, engineering, and technology.
