The Journal of Physical Chemistry– 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 – JPC A, JPC B, and JPC C. Prof. Shukla is the recipient for the JPC B (Biophysics) section of the journal. Our research group has published many research articles in the Journal of Physical Chemistry. Furthermore, our research group has published a total of 35 papers in physical chemistry related journals published by ACS such as Journal of American Chemical Society, ACS Central Science, Journal of Chemical Theory and Computation and Langmuir. The award winners give an invited lecture in the PHYS Division Awards Symposium at Fall 2021 ACS meeting.
Check out the list of our publications in The Journal of Physical Chemistry below. For more detailed interview of the awardees, please read the news article from ACS Axial. https://axial.acs.org/2021/03/31/2021-jpc-lectureship-winners-announced/
