Recently released by the American Chemical Society, Professor Jay Siegel, Dean of the School of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology and the School of Life Sciences at Tianjin University, was listed as a ACS Fellow for 2018.

Founded in 1876, the American Chemical Society, known as the professional home of global chemical companies, chemists and chemical engineers, is one of the largest scientific societies in the world. An ACS Fellowship is a high honor established by the American Chemical Society to recognize the tremendous achievements and important contributions of members in scientific research. The nomination system for ACS Fellowships follows strict rules for nominating organizations and nominees. Due to the high standard, only a few dozen scientists are elected ACS Fellowships each year. In 2018, 51 outstanding scientists around the world were elected as ACS Fellows.

Professor Siegel is also Head of the Functional Molecular Collaborative Innovation Center of the Chemical Science and Engineering team. In over 60 years, he was the first Dean of foreign origin, and is now the only foreign Dean, at Tianjin University. As an innovative talent of the National Thousand Talents Program, and the chief scientist of a Major Scientific Research Project (the 973 Program of the Ministry of Science and Technology), Professor Siegel led the School of Pharmaceutical Science and Technology of Tianjin University to successfully apply to be an “Internationalization Demonstration School”. Jointly launched by the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs and the Ministry of Education, it makes the School one of the first four approved demonstration schools in the country. In April of 2018, the 40th anniversary since the Reform and Opening-up, Professor Siegel was awarded as the most influential foreign expert in China.
