Academic Family Trees

We’ve traced the academic lineages of our team of top young chemists to uncover their common ancestors

To read the trees, choose one of our Talented 12 and follow the colored arrows to discover how each fits into the central-science family.

Lineage is indicated through colored arrows: Black traces undergraduate lineage, blue traces graduate lineage, and red traces postdoctoral lineage. Common ancestors are highlighted in yellow: Click to see which of the Talented 12 are connected through these well-known chemists.

Note: Affiliations of our Talented 12’s academic relatives are current, most notable, or last known. Lineages are not comprehensive.
