Robert Gilliard Named Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow

UVa Chemistry Assistant Professor Robert Gilliard has been named a National Academy of Sciences Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow. According to the program website:

"The Kavli Frontiers of Science symposium series is the National Academy of Science's premiere activity for distinguished young scientists. Attendees are selected by a committee of Academy members from among young researchers who have already made recognized contributions to science, including recipients of major national fellowships and awards and who have been identified as future leaders in science. The attendees are designated Kavli Fellows. Attendees include Sloan Fellows, Packard Fellows, MacArthur Genius Grantees, Pew Fellows, Searle Scholars and Presidential Early Career Awardees for Scientists and Engineers. Since the inception of the Frontiers in Science series in 1989, more than 175 of its "alumni" have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences and ten have been awarded Nobel Prizes.”
