SETAC/ICA Chris Lee Award
Share |

Sponsored by The International Copper Association

The SETAC / ICA Chris Lee Award for Metals Research, sponsored by The International Copper Association and initiated by the Society to recognize the leadership and technical contributions by the late Dr. Chris Lee, provides up to $5,000 to a graduate student or recent graduate who has focused on research related to the fate and/or effects of metals in the environment. A key consideration for this award is that the recipient will continue research on metals-related environmental issues and funding will be provided by ICA toward the recipient's ongoing research.
