McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine Faculty Member Dr. Steven Little Receives 2012 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award
McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine faculty member Steve Little, PhD, chair of the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, associate professor, and Bicentennial Alumni Faculty Fellow of the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering, received the 2012 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award from the Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation. This highly competitive award supports the research and teaching careers of talented young faculty in the chemical sciences who demonstrate leadership in research and education.
Dr. Little’s award provides an unrestricted $75,000 research grant which will support both teaching and student research at the Swanson School. Most exciting, Dr. Little is one of possibly only two faculty members at the University of Pittsburgh to receive this award since its founding, according to Pitt’s records. He is the first in the Swanson School to be so recognized.
Because of its prestige, the Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award is very competitive and recognizes the top chemistry researchers in their respective fields. (Universities may only submit one nominee per year.) The McGowan Institute, the Swanson School, and the entire University share in the pride of Dr. Little’s latest accomplishment.
