The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation has selected Imaging in the Chemical Sciences as the topic of the 2023 Dreyfus Prize.

The Dreyfus Prize, awarded biennially, recognizes an individual for exceptional and original research in a selected area of chemistry that has advanced the field in a major way. The prize consists of a monetary award of $250,000, a medal, and a certificate. Unique features of the award include a ceremony and lecture event at the Prize winner’s institution and a symposium featuring the prize winner and leading scientists, in this field, at the national meeting of the American Chemical Society.

“Imaging techniques in the Chemical Sciences provide a visual representation of the real-space spatial distribution of structure, composition, and properties of molecules, crystals, assemblies, and materials,” said Matthew Tirrell, chair of the Dreyfus Foundation Scientific Affairs Committee. “We wish to recognize an individual who, through experimental methods and/or techniques of data analysis, has significantly impacted and advanced this important field.”
