Sorensen Wins Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award
Assistant Professor Erik Sorensen has won a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar
Award from The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation, which is dedicated
to the advancement of the chemical sciences. The award recognizes investigators
in the early stages of their careers who have demonstrated outstanding
scientific accomplishments and displayed continuing dedication to the
education of students at all levels.
Sorensen is interested in novel organic chemical reactivity, and a broad
goal of his research is to approximate the efficiency with which nature
creates architecturally unique, biologically active natural products.
He and his students seek intrinsically favorable reaction pathways by
which commonplace building blocks can be transformed to molecules that
show promise as therapeutic agents.
