Bursten received the Spiers Memorial Prize and Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2003, and the Morley Medal of the Cleveland Section of the American Chemical Society in 2005. Dr. Bruce was President of the American Chemical Society for 2008. In addition to his teaching and service activities, His research program focuses on compounds of the transition-metal and actinide elements.

Catherine J. Murphy

Catherine J. Murphy

Dr. Catherine J. Murphy earned two B.S. degrees from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, in 1986, one in Chemistry and the other in Biochemistry. In 1990, she earned a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Wisconsin.

From 1990 to 1993, she worked at the California Institute of Technology as a National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health Postdoctoral Fellow. She joined the University of South Carolina, Columbia, faculty in 1993 and is now the Guy F. Lipscomb Professor of Chemistry.

Professor Murphy has been recognised for both research and teaching as a Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar, an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellow, a Research Corporation Cottrell Scholar, a National Science Foundation CAREER Award recipient, and a subsequent NSF Award for Special Achievement.

H. Eugene LeMay

H. Eugene LeMay

Dr. H. Eugene Lemay, Jr., received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from Pacific Lutheran University (Washington) and his Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1966 from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Eugene then joined the faculty of the University of Nevada, Reno, where he is currently Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus. Dr. Lemay has enjoyed Visiting Professorships at the University College of Wales in Great Britain, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and at the University of California, Los Angeles. Professor Eugene is a popular and effective teacher, who has taught thousands of college students during more than forty years of university teaching. Known for the clarity of his lectures and his sense of humor, he has received several teaching awards, including the University Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award (1991) and the first Regents’ Teaching Award given by the State of Nevada Board of Regents (1997).

Matthew Stoltzfus

Matthew Stoltzfus

Professor Matthew W. Stoltzfus graduated from Millersville University with a B.S. in Chemistry in 2002 and The Ohio State University with a Ph.D. in Chemistry in 2007. He worked for the Ohio REEL network, an NSF-funded center that works to integrate authentic research experiments into the general chemistry lab curriculum at over 15  universities and colleges throughout Ohio, for two years as a teaching postdoctoral assistant.

Dr. Stoltzfus joined the Ohio State University faculty in 2009 and is currently a Chemistry Lecturer. In addition to teaching general chemistry, he accepted a Faculty Fellow position with the Digital First Initiative, which encourages instructors to use new technology to provide chemistry students with engaging digital learning material.

He created an iTunes U general chemistry course as a result of this initiative, which has drawn over 120,000 students from all over the world. Professor Stoltzfus has earned a number of teaching honors, including the inaugural Ohio State University Provost's Award for Distinguished Teaching by a Lecturer in 2013, as well as being named an Apple Distinguished Educator.
