Mark Fuerniss presenting Kaushik Panigrahi with his award plaque

Mark Fuerniss and family established a fund to commemorate the life of alum Stephen J. Fuerniss, Ph.D (1975) in Organic Photochemistry. Dr. Fuerniss’s coworkers uniformly speak of his honesty, forthrightness and helpfulness. This year’s graduate student award recipient exemplifies those same qualities and traits. If you would like to honor someone special in your life consider a memorial or remembrance fund.

"To me the Fuerniss award is a recognition of my contributions in organic chemistry as a Ph.D. student at UNL. It further motivates me to be a good scientist in the future." commented graduate student Kaushik Panigrahi.

Thank you for your support! Give
