Professor of Chemistry and Faculty Newsletter Editorial Board member Stephen J. Lippard has won the 2013 James R. Killian Jr. Faculty Achievement Award.

Named after MIT’s 10th president, the Award was established in 1971 “to recognize extraordinary professional accomplishments by MIT faculty members and to communicate these accomplishments to members of the MIT community.”

Announced at the May 15 Institute faculty meeting, the Award committee honored Lippard’s “groundbreaking work [that] has pushed back the frontiers of inorganic chemistry, while simultaneously paving the way for improvements in human health and the conquering of disease.”

Among many awards and honors, Lippard has also been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the National Institute of Medicine, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
