Dr. Konrad Meister is an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Physical Chemistry at Boise State University. He recently received a prestigious award given by the Journals of the American Chemical Society (ACS). “The Journal of Physical Chemistry and PHYS Division Lectureship Awards honor the contributions of investigators who have made major impacts on the field of physical chemistry in the research areas associated with each section of the journal.” Dr. Meister is the recipient of The Journal of Physical Chemistry B award. As a result, he will receive $1500 and an invitation to speak at the ACS Fall Meeting.
Additionally, he was interviewed after winning this award. He was asked what inspired him to pursue his area of research. His response was “From a young age, I have been captivated by the wonders of the natural world, and the thrill of research for me lies in discovering nature’s secrets and sharing those discoveries with others.” You can read the interview with Konrad in full on the ACS Axial webpage.
The Journal of Physical Chemistry B publishes research in four areas of Physical Chemistry: Biophysics, Biomaterials, Liquids, and Soft Matter. Konrad has been published in this particular journal four times in the past few years, most recently for his article “Toward Understanding Bacterial Ice Nucleation.”
All of Dr. Meister’s articles that he has collaborated on can be found on the ACS Publications website.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is proud to have him as part of our team. We’re grateful that his passion of sharing discoveries with others has led him to his work here at this university.
