2008-09 Hirschfelder Prize in Theoretical Chemistry is Mark Ratner

We are excited to announce that the winner of the 2008-09 Hirschfelder Prize in Theoretical Chemistry is Mark Ratner, from Northwestern. This Prize (the largest in the world in theoretical chemistry) was initiated in 1991, and recipients have been top drawer. Ratner is no exception. He has pioneered seminal research in molecular electronics, nanophotonics, reaction mechanisms, biophysics, etc. He is super broad, and will be wonderfully interactive. He will be visiting Oct 13-15, 2008, and will deliver three lectures. Mark your calendars!
