Dong on what gets his creative juices flowing: “It often starts with a good question being asked by either the students or myself. Some questions are purely driven by curiosity; others are driven by known unsolved problems. These questions provide inspiration for creating new approaches.”

What his colleagues say: “His creativity and insights establish him as one of the very best young organic chemists in his generation.”—Stephen F. Martin, University of Texas, Austin
