2017 Morley Address:
"Trekking Toward In-Vivo Nanosensors"
A long-standing aspect of our research program has aimed to develop robust chemical sensors for a variety of applications. This presentation will walk the audience along from our research program’s infancy to where we stand today making real time measurements on live animals under stimulus and moving toward measurements on the single synapse level.

About the Morley Medal :
The Cleveland Section annually sponsors a regional award, which consists of the Morley Medal and an honorarium of $2,000. The next presentation of the Morley Medal will take place at the meeting of the Cleveland Section ACS in May 2017. The award is presented at a banquet, at which time the recipient will deliver the Edward W. Morley Lecture for that year. Travel expenses for the medalist and spouse will be provided.
The purpose of the award is to recognize significant contributions to chemistry through achievements in research, teaching, engineering, research administration and public service, outstanding service to humanity, or to industrial progress.
The area of eligibility includes those parts of the United States and Canada within about 250 miles of Cleveland. The contributions for which the award is given should have been made by the awardee when a resident of this area, or if a major contribution was made elsewhere, the nominee should have continued to make contributions while a resident of this area. Nominations may be made by any member of the American Chemical Society, The Chemical Society or the Chemical Institute of Canada.
