Congratulations to the Recipient of the 2024 Outstanding Dissertation Award!

The Graduate School is pleased to announce the recipient of the 2024 Outstanding Dissertation Award:

Dr. Tongliang Zhou

Dr. Zhou received his PhD (with advisor Prof. Michal Szostak) in Chemistry in October 2023. With his pioneering research, Dr. Zhou discovered the first Pd-catalyzed decarbonylative Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling of amides, and his work is now extensively utilized by other labs worldwide to develop new catalysts.

Dr. Zhou currently holds a Postdoctoral Fellowship (with Prof. Peter Schultz) at Scripps Research Institute, researching organic synthesis and catalysis.

Congratulations again, Tongliang!
