Dr. Sylvie Derenne of CNRS and Sorbonne Université (France) will receive the 2019 Alfred Treibs Award this summer. Presented by the society's Organic Geochemistry Division, the award is given for major achievements, over a period of years, in organic geochemistry. Dr. Derenne is recognized for her research on the selective preservation of algal cell walls to form kerogen and the hypothesis that carbonaceous chondrite organic matter derives from solar gases and dust. She will accept the award at the International Meeting on Organic Geochemistry (IMOG) in September.
