Jamal Uddin, associate professor of natural sciences at Coppin State University, is the recipient of the 2014 Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award. Founder and director of Coppin’s Center for Nanotechnology, Dr. Uddin plans to use the funds to continue supporting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) research, especially solar research.

This is Dr. Uddin’s second consecutive year receiving the prestigious recognition. The award is for academic year 2013-2014.

"We did it again,” Dr. Uddin joyfully stated. “This is good for Coppin. As a professor, I am really happy and plan to pursue the award next year. This is really, very, very good news for us.”

The Wilson H. Elkins Professorship Award is the highest honor the Board of Regents’ bestows to recognize exemplary faculty achievement. As stated in the award letter, the nominee pool was extremely strong but Dr. Uddin’s commitment to Coppin’s STEM research and “excellent work with undergraduate students and his research of multi-junction and dye-sensitized solar cells” led to the awarding of $40,000.

“This is yet another stellar success which simply validates your excellence in the field of Nano sciences,” said Dr. Mintesinot Jiru, associate professor of natural sciences. “You make our department shine year after year and we celebrate you for being an inspiration to us and our students. Keep up the momentum!”

Dr. John L. Hudgins, associate professor of sociology added, “Your unwavering support of our students and greater opportunities for them is outstanding. This award is a timely recognition of that. Keep up the good work.”
