Scott Phillips, Assistant Professor of Chemistry, has been chosen to receive a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. CAREER is a Foundation-wide activity that "offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations."

The Phillips group designs and synthesizes reagents that are capable of autonomously detecting trace chemical signals and then providing a highly amplified response.
