Chemistry professors win Cope Prize

Two Cornell chemistry professors have received the 2024 Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award from the American Chemical Society

They are: Tristan Lambert, the William T. Miller Professor of chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S); and Song Lin, Tisch University Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology (A&S).

The Cope Scholar Award recognizes contributions to organic chemistry and includes a $40,000 grant for a university or research institute of the professor’s choice, along with a $5,000 prize. 

The Lambert Group is centered around the study of unique chemical structures and their application to reaction design, catalysis and synthesis. Among other honors, Lambert has received the Abbott Young Investigator Award, an NSF CAREER Award, an Alfred P. Sloan Research fellowship and an Eli Lilly Grantee Award.

The Lin Research Group is involved with research on synthetic electrochemistry, and expands the scope and application of electrochemical systems, according to Lin. He is also an associate editor for Organic Lettersthe leading academic journal on organic chemistry.
