Scientists In Solar Energy Research Receive Additional Funding

Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA), America's second-oldest foundation and the first wholly devoted to science, announced today that it has presented Scialog® Collaborative Innovation Awards of $100,000 to each of three groups of scientists to supplement the initial grant awards under RCSA's groundbreaking Scialog research initiative.

Two original Scialog awardees - Raymond Schaak, Associate Professor of Chemistry at Penn State University, and Alan Heyduk, Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of California-Irvine - and John Gilbertson, Assistant Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Western Washington University and a U.S. National Science Foundation SOLAR awardee, will research artificial nanoscale enzymes for carbon dioxide reduction catalysis.
