Peidong Yang, a UC Berkeley chemist who is trying to capture carbon dioxide from the air and turn it into a sustainable transportation fuel, has been named a MacArthur “genius” Fellow.
Professor Elizabeth Moxon from LBNL and Professor Claus Hebfast from Synchroton SOLEIL began their FBF granted project in 2013 with the goal to develop an engaging and effective educational program for high-school students that would introduce them to the opportunities and challenges of scientific research with the intention of attracting and developing the next generation of young scientists.
On June 1, 2015, the FBF Executive Committee met at the Collège de France in Paris to determine the 2015 FBF grantees. The twenty highest ranked projects were selected for FBF funding this year. Congratulations to our grantees!
