Professor Carr receives award for excellence in education

Professor Peter Carr will be honored with the 2013 American Chemical Society of Analytical Chemistry J. Calvin Giddings Award for Excellence in Education at the ACS National Meeting, Tuesday, September 10.

This award honors Carr for his contributions to analytical chemistry and for enhancing the personal and professional development of students who are studying analytical chemistry. Throughout his years as a faculty member at University of Georgia and, since 1977, at University of Minnesota, Carr has made many contributions benefitting students in the classroom and in the laboratory, including writing influential books and articles for analytical courses, training and mentorship, and laboratory equipment design and use.

One of Carr's former students, Professor Mark Vitha from Drake University, will present his talk at the awards symposium, which is scheduled for 3:35 p.m. to 4:10 p.m. Tuesday, September 10, in Room 111/112 at the Indiana Convention Center.
