Prof. Nicholas V. Hud has been named to receive the 2013 GT-Outstanding Achievement in Research Program Development Award at the Faculty and Staff Honors Luncheon on April 10, 2013.  Prof. Hud has led the establishment of a major research program at Georgia Tech in the area of Chemical Evolution and Prebiotic Chemistry, a program that has garnered national and international recognition. Under Prof. Hud's leadership, no less than ten laboratories at Georgia Tech are now involved in various aspects of chemical evolution and prebiotic chemistry research. The funding for this research is primarily provided by a $20 million grant (over five years) that was jointly funded in October 2010 by the NSF and NASA. These funds are managed through the Georgia Tech Center for Chemical Evolution (GT-CCE), of which Prof. Hud is PI and Founding Director.  The GT-CCE is a Phase II NSF Center for Chemical Innovation (CCI), of which only six currently exist in the nation. The CCI grants are the largest awards made by the NSF Division of Chemistry. The GT-CCE was the first CCI to be headquartered in the Southeastern United States, a distinction that undoubtedly raised the profile of Georgia Tech within the NSF and with our peer institutions. The GT-CCE is also unique within the CCI program because it is the only CCI that is jointly funded by a second federal agency, NASA. 

Congratulations, Nick!
