The ACS Women Chemists Committee (WCC) has named the recipients of its 2013 Rising Star Awards, which recognize exceptional early- to midcareer women chemists across all areas of chemistry on a national level. The awards were established in 2011 to help promote retention of women in science.

The winners are Gwen Gross of Boeing, Jong-in Hahm of Georgetown University, Joy Haley of the Air Force Research Laboratory, Michelle Hamm of the University of Richmond, Sunghee Lee of Iona College, Lisa Marcaurelle of H3 Biomedicine, Catherine S. Patterson of Getty Conservation Institute, Linda S. Shimizu of the University of South Carolina, Seble Wagaw of Abbott Laboratories, and Mary P. Watson of the University of Delaware.

The winners will receive a $1,000 stipend to cover travel expenses to the spring 2013 ACS national meeting in New Orleans, where they will present their research at a WCC symposium.
