Norman Hackerman Award In Chemical Research

The Welch Foundation Norman Hackerman Award in Chemical Research furthers chemical discovery in Texas each year by recognizing emerging leaders. The Welch Foundation proudly bestows the 2020 award upon Dr. Vincent S. Tagliabracci.

The Norman Hackerman Award in Chemical Research was established by the Foundation to honor Norman Hackerman, its Scientific Advisory Board chair from 1982 to 2006. The award recognizes the accomplishments of chemical scientists in Texas who are early in their careers. It is designed to encourage scientists who are embarking on careers dedicated to increasing our fundamental understanding of chemistry.

The Scientific Advisory Board will consider whether or not any nominee or nominees are worthy of the award, and will recommend to the Board of Directors not more than three nominees they determine are qualified to receive the award. The Board of Directors will make the final selection.

The award will normally be presented at a function on the campus of the recipient’s institution. The current monetary amount of the award is $100,000.
