The University of Kentucky (UK) College of Arts & Sciences has launched a fund to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Susan Odom, a dear friend and JCESR collaborator.
Dr. Susan A. Odom (1980-2021) was a talented associate professor of chemistry in the UK Department of Chemistry and a 2003 UK Chemistry graduate. She joined the faculty in 2011 and quickly became a valued colleague and instructor. In addition to being a brilliant scholar, Dr. Odom was committed to teaching and inspiring her students. She served as a mentor and role model and pushed the boundaries of scientific research in her active lab.
Gifts to the Professor Susan A. Odom Chemistry Endowment Fund support a faculty position in Dr. Odom’s name, an annual named lecture in the area of organic or materials chemistry, and a named award for an undergraduate chemistry major who has demonstrated excellence in research. This fund honors Dr. Odom’s legacy of excellence at the university and will have a positive impact on the UK Department of Chemistry for generations to come.
