Erika Moore, Ph.D., the Rhines Rising Star Larry Hench Assistant Professor of Materials Science & Engineering (MSE), is the first Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering faculty member to be selected for the 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award (NTFA).
The 3M NTFA was created over 25 years ago and recognizes outstanding young faculty who excel in STEM research while demonstrating academic leadership. The award is intended to help them achieve tenure, remain in their teaching positions, and conduct research. Awardees are nominated by 3M researchers.
