Previous IVAN Founders Award Recipients

2022 – Daneen Angwin-Kaerner, Loxo@Lilly Inc., Award Activity:

Daneen was a pillar of the SMASH conference organization during her tenure as the secretary and a member of the executive committee. With Daneen’s service contribution SMASH grew by leaps and bounds from a niche conference to a peer recognized premier small molecule conference.

2021 – Kenneth Sharp-Knott, Department of Chemistry, Virginia Tech University, Award Activity:

In April of 2020 Ken enthusiastically embraced the new Idea of IVAN Zoom Meetings, initially to discuss the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on NMR lab operation. These meetings have now become the IVAN Round-table Workshops, given approximately once per month. Ken was a leader in planning several of the first meetings and with his enthusiasm and work he helped interest the rest of us in the project.
