Nobel Prize Announcement!

AMPS shared in the joy of the announcement this morning that Northwestern’s own Sir Fraser Stoddart has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry!

A press conference was quickly called and we jumped in to provide a 2-camera live stream.  With 90 minute’s notice, we grabbed out gear and joined colleagues from A&RT in the event space.  It was an energizing and inspiring experience preparing for and being present at this event!  The room was packed with press and members of the Northwestern community.  Speaking with a pride felt by the entire Northwestern family, President Morty Schapiro and Provost Dan Linzer offered a champagne toast and congratulated Sir Stoddart.  Stoddart shared his thoughts on the award, his work, and the field of Chemistry, and concluded by answering a few questions from the audience.

On behalf of A&RT, congratulations, Sir Fraser Stoddart!
