University of Northern Colorado Associate Professor Robin Macaluso is one of 10 chemists nationwide to be selected a Young Observer Fellow by the National Academy of Sciences.

As a Young Observer Fellow, Macaluso will participate in the 47th International Union for Pure and Applied Chemistry General Assembly and 44th World Chemistry Congress on Aug. 8-16 in Istanbul, Turkey.

The selection of Young Observer Fellows is a highly competitive process held biennially. Young Observer Fellows are chosen as a new generation of distinguished researchers who will address international scientific policy issues.

Macaluso also leads a grant-funded project exploring the next generation of efficient lighting, which could result in more affordable, longer-lasting options for light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, in the future. Read More
