It's been a whirlwind month for University at Buffalo chemistry Professor Diana Aga.
Aga's recent paper that found anti-depressants in local waters were affecting the fish populations that live there attracted international attention in early September.
This week, the Henry Woodburn Professor of Chemistry, who has her own laboratory at the University at Buffalo's North Campus, was selected as this year's winner of the prestigious Jacob F. Schoellkopf Medal, the university announced.
The award was presented Tuesday by the Western New York section of the American Chemical Society at its annual banquet at the Hotel Lafayette.
The society stated it presented Aga with the medal "in recognition of her pioneering contributions to understanding the effect, fate, transport, and treatment of emerging contaminants in our environment, her wide-ranging student mentoring efforts, and her service to the profession."
