Jeffrey Dick, Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Altai State University, has been recognized with the prestigious Sloane Research Fellowship for early-career researchers.

The Sloan Research Fellowships are awarded annually by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation since 1955 to the most outstanding early-career researchers.

The scholarships were originally awarded in physics, chemistry, and mathematics. More recent awards have been added in neurobiology (1972), economics (1980), computer science (1993), computational and evolutionary molecular biology (2002), and ocean and earth research (2012).

Since the beginning of the program in 1955, 43 fellows have won the Nobel Prize, and 16 have won the Fields Medal in mathematics.

Jeffrey Dick is one of the most prominent young scientists working at the intersection of nanoelectrochemistry and biology. His research is aimed at studying the chemical reactions of extremely small volumes of matter, including at the level of individual cells, which allows to solve urgent problems in the field of human biology at the most fundamental level.

Dick's impressive achievements include being named among the Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in 2019 in science and Medical Technology’s 30 under 30 Young Innovators list in 2016.

Since 2019, Jeffrey has been actively cooperating with Altai State University, and in 2020 he became a professor at AltSU. He works at the Russian-American Anti-Cancer Center, and also teaches a unique interdisciplinary course "Applications of Nanotechnology to Biology: Principles and Practices" for students of different institutes of AltSU.

We congratulate Professor Dick on a well-deserved high award and wish him new accomplishments and new projects in cooperation with scientists from Altai State University!
