Boston College chemistry professor Udayan Mohanty receives a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship
Date:4/13/2009

Chestnut Hill, Mass. (April 13, 2009) Boston College Chemistry Professor Udayan Mohanty has been awarded a 2009 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for his theoretical studies of rare chemical reactions.

Mohanty said he was honored to be among the 180 scientists, artists and scholars chosen from a field of 3,000 applicants. The only U.S. chemist to receive a Guggenheim this year, Mohanty credited his Boston College colleagues for their support of his interdisciplinary research.

"When you work on these kinds of problems that take years of work, it is important to be surrounded by people who provide you with inspiration both new faculty who bring energy and excitement and senior faculty who are intellectually world class," said Mohanty, who has been at Boston College since 1985.

Trained as a physical chemist, Mohanty embarked on an interdisciplinary research program in 1997 across the fields of modern physical chemistry, biophysics, biophysical chemistry and soft condensed matter physics.

Mohanty said his fellowship will allow him to spend the next year using new computational models to develop a set of tools that will allow scientists to describe rare fluctuations in chemical systems. He hopes to discover chemical reaction pathways that are as yet unknown, in particular those surrounding the behavior of DNA and RNA.

Mohanty joins a distinguished list of fellow BC chemists who have previously received Guggenheim Fellowships, including John Tully, Margaret Tolbert, and Laura Kiessling.
