Research to advance Forensic Textile Analytical Chemistry conducted by two TECS faculty members and two former undergraduate students was recently awarded the 2012 J.W. Weaver Paper of the Year Award by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists. Both students entered NC State’s Graduate School with a research focus in analytical chemistry: Nathan Weisner (Ph.D. Chemistry, NC State) and Anne Crawford (M.S. Textile Chemistry, NC State). TECS faculty and students also won this award in 2011.
