Award Winner: Pam Chu
Trailblazers are minority men and women actively creating new paths for others in science, research, technology, and development. Some are experienced executives who continuously seek innovative products or lines of thought, some are breaking new ground at the midpoint of their careers, and others are recent graduates who show pioneering promise. But regardless of their career point, they distinguish themselves by constantly setting their sights higher, striving to innovate and open doors for others.
Dr. Chu received the Science Spectrum Trailblazer Award for her development of quantitative spectroscopic tools for measurement of trace amounts of gaseous substances.
