Phil Scott, a fourth-year Macromolecular Science and Engineering (MACR) Ph.D. student in the Long Group, has received multiple awards recently acknowledging his interdisciplinary work. 

Scott received the 2018 Excellence in Graduate Polymer Research Award from the American Chemical Society's Division of Polymer Chemistry (POLY). 

"I am deeply honored to have received this award and excited for the opportunity it brings to share my research with experts in the field at ACS," Scott said. 

In addition, ACS honored Scott with an Outstanding POLY Poster Award at the 2019 Spring Sci-Mix poster session. Scott was one of three winners out of more than 60 posters in the special session.

"I'm extremely honored and excited to receive this award," Scott said. "I want to thank everyone who made it possible for me to share this small slice of the exciting collaborative research going on in MII!"

His poster detailed his work to harness polymer latex in a new way to introduce high molecular weight elastomers to vat photopolymerization 3D printing.

"Phil represents a modern day researcher who transcends boundaries and is able to effectively communicate discoveries with great clarity," said Tim Long, Scott's advisor and Director of the Macromolecules Innovation Institute. "He is truly forging a new direction in the additive manufacturing of polymeric latexes!"
