Jimmy Mays, professor of chemistry and distinguished scientist, was admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). The RSC is the largest organization in Europe for advancing the chemical sciences. Mays’ name along with other recently admitted Fellows will be published in the Times (London) newspaper. The Fellow status is awarded to individuals who have “made an outstanding contribution to the advancement of the chemical sciences; or to the advancement of the chemical sciences as a profession; or have been distinguished in the management of a chemical sciences organization.” Prior to this honor, Mays was also named ACS Fellow, Founding Poly Fellow, PMSE Fellow, and received numerous awards such as Herman Mark Senior Scholar Award and Navigator Award. Three graduate students, a visiting scientist, and a research assistant professor are working on this project. Three of which are women. This project thus provides an excellent environment for mentoring scientists in areas of interest to NASA. One of the other students is applying for a NASA Graduate Fellowship opportunity.
