Lu elected fellow of leading scientific organization
Dr. Peter Lu, Ohio Eminent Scholar in Photochemical Sciences at BGSU, has been elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS), a preeminent scientific organization.
Nominated by the society's Division of Biological Physics, Lu was selected "for his significant contributions to the quantitative understanding of protein dynamics, in particular, in enzymatic reactions by developing novel single-molecule spectroscopy and methodology."
According to the APS, "the criterion for election is exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise; e.g., outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education. Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one's professional peers."
"Dr. Lu's election to the society places him among an elite group of scientists around the world, and I'm especially pleased to see him receive this honor," said Dr. Mike Ogawa, vice president for research and economic development. "Peter's groundbreaking work in single molecule spectroscopy has added great strength to Bowling Green State University's Center for Photochemical Sciences. Importantly, Peter is not only a great researcher but is also a great colleague."
