Lisa Olshansky is the recipient of the 2016–18 Irving S. Sigal Postdoctoral Fellowship of the American Chemical Society.

The fellowship stipend is currently $55,000 a year for two years, and it is awarded to a Ph.D. candidate who is pursuing research at the interface of chemistry and biology.

Olshansky earned a Ph.D in chemistry from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2015. She will begin a postdoc at the University of California, Irvine, where she will investigate how nature controls the reactivity of metallocofactor intermediates for the oxidation of strong chemical bonds.

The fellowship is named for Irving S. Sigal, a chemist who applied site-directed mutagenesis to study the structure and function of enzymes and proteins.
