JPS Innovation Prize 2017

The Journal of Polymer Science is proud to announce the sixth year of its international award. The Journal of Polymer Science Innovation Award recognizes significant research innovation and achievement in a polymer scientist under 40. The award consists of a symposium in association with the Polymeric Materials: Science and Engineering (PMSE) Division of the ACS and a dinner in recognition of the recipient at the ACS Fall meeting, a $5,000 prize, and travel expenses of up to $1,000 to the ACS Fall meeting for the award year. This year's winner will be announced at the ACS Fall Meeting.

Past awards were given to young scientists exploring exciting new fields in the chemistry and physics of polymer systems. Recent winners include Ryan Hayward, Associate Professor of Polymer Science and Engineering at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst; Brent Sumerlin, Professor of Chemistry at the University of Florida; Rachel Segalman, Professor in both Chemical Engineering and Materials at the University of California, Santa Barbara; and Cyrille Boyer, Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales.
