Congratulations to Dr. Burt Davis, longtime CAER Associate Director for the Clean Fuels and Chemicals Group, and world renowned expert in Fischer-Tropsch catalysis. He has recently been awarded $1.5 million grant from NASA – and has been named to the 2011 American Chemical Society’s Fellows Program. The NASA grant, “Relating FTS catalyst properties to performance," is a 3-year proposal that is part of the Subsonic Fixed Wing program. Burt is the principal investigator and point of contact and researcher Gary Jacobs is a co-investigator.

The ACS Fellows Program was created by the ACS Board of Directors in December 2008 “to recognize members of ACS for outstanding achievements in and contributions to Science, the Profession, and the Society.”
