Postdoctoral Fellow Matthew Hannigan (Weck Group) is the recipient of a 2023 Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship. The Arnold O. Beckman Postdoctoral Fellowship provides salary and research support to postdoctoral scholars with the highest potential for success in an independent academic career in the chemical sciences, and to assist in their moves from mentored yet independent researchers to tenure-track positions. The Foundation will award more than $4.7 million in funding over the next three years for 16 exceptional research fellows from 11 universities and research institutions. As a Beckman Fellow, Matt will be conducting research on synthesizing and using helical conjugated polymers to mimic the structures of proteins and other biomacromolecules. Congrats to Matt!
