Susan M. Kauzlarich wins Garvan-Olin Medal from the American Chemical Society
Professor of Chemistry

Susan M. Kauzlarich, UC Davis Professor of Chemistry, received the 2013 Francis P. Garvan–John M. Olin Medal from the American Chemical Society for “distinguished service to chemistry by women chemists.”

The annual award was established by Francis Garvan and Mabel Brady Garvan in 1936 in honor of their daughter and is currently sponsored by the Olin Corporation. It was initially an essay contest, that ran for seven years, as a memorial to their daughter (the American Chemical Society’s Prize Essay Contest). It was solely funded by the Francis P. Garvan Medal Endowment from its establishment in 1936 until 1979. W. R. Grace & Co. assumed co-sponsorship of the award from 1979 to 1983. In 1984, Olin Corporation assumed co-sponsorship.
