Vela named John Corbett Professor of Chemistry

July 1, 2020

In addition to having the title of University Professor, Javier Vela will serve as the next John Corbett Professor of Chemistry.  He succeeds Kirill Kovnir as of July 1, 2020 and will be a very worthy holder of the title.

Plans for a celebration which includes the Dean are on hold for now, but we hope circumstances will allow us to celebrate in person in the Fall.

Congratulations to Vela and thank you to Kovnir for his fine service to the tradition of the Chair.
