Our group was recently selected to receive a small external grant from Organic Syntheses, Inc. Only 12 of these are given out each year, and many past award recipients are among the more well-known names in the field of synthetic organic chemistry at primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) in the United States. The Organic Syntheses, Inc. PUI faculty grant for research will fund our research efforts during Summer 2022 and Summer 2023. Specifically, it provides a $5,000 stipend each year to compensate a full-time undergraduate who will work under the title of Organic Syntheses Summer Scholar and money for supplies, reagents, and equipment. I have chosen UVU undergraduate Morgan Payne as the recipient of this fellowship for Summer 2022. He will be working on the preparation of halogenated derivatives of clavatadines A-E. Congratulations Morgan!
