In recognition of his facility for bringing great chemistry into the classroom, Professor Dennis Dougherty has been awarded Caltech's most prestigious teaching honor, the Richard P. Feynman Prize for Excellence in Teaching. Dougherty, the George Grant Hoag Professor of Chemistry, was selected for his "exceptional ability to render difficult concepts in organic chemistry accessible to a broad cross section of undergraduate and graduate students," a skill that has led some of his students to call him "the best lecturer at Caltech."
