Peter Tarsa Selected as Chairman

In response to the decision by the Steering Committee to identify leadership from within the committee as opposed to within the department, Peter Tarsa (’99) has been selected as the first Chair of the Friends of Chemistry. Peter received his BS in 1999, a PhD from Princeton in 2004, completed a Post-doc at MIT, and is now employed by Novartis in Cambridge, MA in the area of Drug Discovery.  He joined the FoC Steering Committee in October 2010.
