The Department of Chemistry congratulates Dr. Nicholas C. Fitzkee, Associate Professor of Chemistry, on being named a Dean’s Eminent Scholar – the primary intent of which is to acknowledge and retain exceptionally meritorious faculty who have achieved national recognition and enhanced the quality and stature of academic programs within the College.
Since Dr. Fitzkee’s successful tenure & promotion earlier this year, he has exhibited steadfast dedication to advancing his exceptional high standards of funded research, teaching, and service. He and his students have published several additional high impact peer reviewed publications while his research group continues to disseminate their work at leading conferences with international visibility; including the The Biophysical Society Meeting and The Gibbs Conference. Two of his Ph.D. students are set to defend and graduate this year.
Dr. Fitzkee also continues to lead our department with exemplary grantsmanship and has successfully provided foundational results, creative work plan constructs, and unique expertise as our master NMR spectroscopist and biophysical experimentalist for a recent cross-campus collaborative COBRE application with CVM. Along these lines, his teaching and oversight stewardship of our flag-ship NMR facility represents a core competency and critical service to our department and other researchers across campus and beyond.
Thank you and the College of Arts & Sciences for supporting Nick for this well-deserved honor and outstanding recognition for our Department.
