Reika Katsumata has received the 2022 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award, which recognizes 20 outstanding early-career faculty members from across the nation who were nominated by 3M researchers based on their research accomplishments, experience, and leadership in STEM.

“Discussion with researchers at 3M has been truly inspiring, and I am excited to bring our unique molecular design into a wide range of applications that synergize with 3M’s interests.”

Katsumata was recognized for work in engineering interfacial stress via dynamic covalent bonds, with results that can be applied to “stress-free” functional coatings and smart extracellular matrices. The award provides an unrestricted fund of $45,000 over three years.
