Honorable Research: Chemistry Professor Malachowski to Receive CUR Fellows Award

Inside USD -- USD Chemistry Professor Mitchell Malachowski, PhD, says he’s tried to find a balance between teaching, research and service. And how.

In his 30 years at USD, Malachowski has taught courses, conducted research with more than 100 students, and promoted undergraduate research on the national level. For these achievements and more, he will be honored with the 2014 Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) Fellows Award at its national conference in Washington, D.C. in June.

The award is presented each year to two CUR members who have developed nationally respected research programs involving undergraduate students. Each CUR Fellow is also awarded a CUR Student Research Fellowship to give to a deserving undergraduate at his or her respective institution. This year’s award will also go to Mark Brodl, associate vice president for Academic Affairs and the George W. Brackenridge Distinguished Professor of Biology at Trinity University. (Full Story)
