Catherine Leimkuhler Grimes, this year's Mangone Scholar, has been recognized as an outstanding researcher, teacher and mentor.
Catherine Leimkuhler Grimes, assistant professor of chemistry and
biochemistry at the University of Delaware, has been selected by the
Universitys Francis Alison Society to receive the 2017 Gerard J.
Mangone Young Scholars Award.
The award recognizes promising and accomplished young faculty. The
recipient is chosen by fellow faculty members who have received the
Francis Alison Award, the Universitys highest competitive faculty
Grimes who conducts research on bacteria, the immune system and
chronic inflammatory diseases such as asthma and Crohns was nominated
by Brian Bahnson, professor and chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
Bahnson described Grimes as an exceptional researcher, mentor and teacher who has won wide acclaim for her work.
Moreover, her passion for science fuels the education of our students, who benefit from her knowledge and enthusiasm, he said.
Bahnson cited Grimes dynamic and exciting research program that,
he said, is strongly multidisciplinary and has substantial potential
applications to developing new approaches to treating diseases.
Her teams research has led to numerous publications, including a
recent paper published in Nature Communications. Bahnson attached a copy
of that paper to his nomination, saying the work on cell wall
remodeling demonstrates that she can join a group of diverse students
and collaborators to develop meaningful tools to answer important
questions in biology.
Her team is now collaborating on that project with researchers at the
Fred Hutch Cancer Center in Seattle and the University of
Grimes was named a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences by The Pew Charitable Trusts in 2014 and won the Cottrell Scholar Award in 2015 and the National Science Foundations Faculty Early Career Development Award
in 2016. This year, she received a Sloan Research Fellowship in
February and an American Chemical Society Infectious Disease Young
Investigator Award in August.
In addition to conducting research, Grimes has mentored 21
undergraduate students in her lab and has worked closely with Hal White,
now professor emeritus of chemistry and biochemistry, to develop an
introduction to biochemistry course that uses problem-based learning
Grimes earned her doctorate in chemistry from Harvard University in
2006 and then worked there and at Massachusetts General Hospital as a
Cancer Research Institute postdoctoral fellow until 2011, when she
joined the UD faculty.
The Mangone Young Scholars Award is named in honor of the late Gerard
J. Mangone, who joined the UD faculty in 1972 and created the UD Center
for the Study of Marine Policy, renamed in his honor in 2003.
Dr. Mangone, University Research Professor in the College of Earth,
Ocean and Environment, received the Francis Alison Award in 1983. In
2010, he received an honorary degree from UD. He died on July 27, 2011.
