The Howard Tieckelmann Memorial Lecture

The Howard Tieckelmann Memorial Lecture honors the legacy of Professor Howard Tieckelmann, who served on our faculty from 1948 until his retirement in 1987. Prof. Tieckelmann was an organic chemist with wide-ranging research interests and was a renowned teacher, having been promoted to SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor in 1975. In his honor and for his contributions to the Department of Chemistry, UB and science at large, the Tieckelmann family, former students, and friends created the Tieckelmann Lecture Funds to commemorate Professor Howard Tieckelmann.
