ADVINCULA IS THE ONLY TRIPLE FELLOW OF THE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY



Rigoberto 'Gobet' Advincula, 2012 President of PAASE, was recently inducted as a fellow of the American Chemical Society (ACS), as well as being named a fellow in two of its technical divisions – the Polymer Chemistry Division and the Polymer Materials Science and Engineering Division. The ACS is the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world’s leading sources of authoritative scientific information. Achieving fellow status is a competitive process, based on research, contribution and service accomplishments to science and society. “It is a rare distinction to become a triple fellow with the ACS, which has more than 163,000 members,” Advincula said. “With only one out of every 1,000 members qualifying for selection as a fellow, I am extremely honored to achieve this trifecta for my work in advancing polymer and nanomaterial research and applications.” He asserts that much of this is really a tribute to his research group at UH, saying that his discovery-driven laboratory provides an environment that allows for readily filing patents, authoring publications and mentoring future scholars and inventors. He says the joy of working with students and budding scientists and engineers is reflected in his record of mentoring, with nearly 20 Ph.D. students, 50 undergraduates and dozens of high school students coming through his lab over the years.
