James Nowick has been elected a fellow of the ACS.

From the C&E News article, "The fellows program began in 2009 as a way to recognize and honor ACS members for outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession, and ACS."

In James’ case, recognition came on multiple fronts: 
Contribution to science/profession: Recognized for pioneering studies of the supramolecular chemistry of beta-sheets and the oligomers formed by amyloidogenic peptides. He founded the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Chemistry Outreach Program, the University of California, Irvine Chemistry Outreach Program, and OpenChem.

Contribution to the ACS community: Recognized as a founding member of the Gay and Transgender Chemists and Allies Subdivision of the Division of Professional Relations. Served on the Interim Executive Committee and currently serves as Subdivision Chair. Also serves on the ACS Graduate Education Advisory Board.
