Dr. Scott Reid awarded Way Klingler Fellowship in science
Reid’s research, which began in 2010, was made possible through his Way Klingler Sabbatical award.
MILWAUKEE – Dr. Scott Reid, professor and department chair of chemistry in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences at Marquette University, is the recipient of this year’s Way Klingler Fellowship in science. The award, which includes $50,000 annually for three years, will allow Reid to finish a project focused on a new roaming reaction pathway to molecular products in the chemistry of halogenated organic compounds.
Reid’s research, which began in 2010, was made possible through his Way Klingler Sabbatical award. He worked alongside researchers from the University of Sydney who were developing new tools to study these reactions.
“I want to sincerely thank the Way Klingler family for this fellowship. Not only will the award allow us to build upon the research project we started three years ago, but in helping develop new tools and external funding for our research, it will strengthen research here at Marquette,” Reid said.
Reid has been at Marquette since 1994 and in 2011 he was named the chair of Marquette’s Chemistry Department. His work has resulted in more than 80 peer-reviewed papers. Additionally, he has received more than $2.3 million in external funding including a prestigious CAREER award from the National Science Foundation.
The Way Klingler Fellowship is for a full-time regular faculty member at the associate or full professor rank who has potential for significant scholarship. Recipients of the Way Klingler Fellowship of science receive $50,000 annually for three years. The money can be used to fund research that requires higher-expense items, such as equipment, supplies and research staff.
