November 18, 2003
Linda Jones, Ph.D., professor of ceramic engineering, and William LaCourse, Ph.D., professor of glass science, both faculty members in the School of Engineering at Alfred University, were among the 58 individuals recently selected by The State University of New York Research Foundation as "New York's most important and innovative scholars and scientists for their accomplishments in medicine, education, literature, genetics, engineering, music, environmental studies, chemistry, computer science and other fields."

"Dr. Jones and Dr. LaCourse have distinguished careers as research scientists on a national and international stage," said David Szczerbacki, Ph.D., AU's provost and vice president for academic and statutory affairs. "It is only fitting that their level of excellence be recognized. Each has demonstrated a passion for research as well as a capacity to define the cutting edge of their respective disciplines."
