The Camille & Henry Dreyfus Foundation is dedicated to the advancement of the chemical sciences. Established in 1946 by chemist, inventor, and businessman Camille Dreyfus as a memorial to his brother Henry, the Foundation became a memorial to both men when Camille Dreyfus died in 1956. Throughout its history the Foundation has sought to take the lead in identifying and addressing needs and opportunities in the chemical sciences through a series of programs and awards.

Congratulations, Dr. Carrick!
