Nanotech Lab Named For Retired Professor With Charitable Gift To Gannon University
Posted: January 5, 2016
A charitable gift to Gannon University by retired chemistry
professor Carl A. Hultman, Ph.D. has been acknowledged by the
University by naming the nanotechnology lab in honor of his long
teaching career. Hultman has taught many classes through since
joining the Gannon University faculty in 1976. They included
analytical chemistry and advanced inorganic and polymer science,
but his real love is nanotechnology.
"I am honored to have my name associated with the nanotechnology
program at Gannon University," Hultman said.
Hultman holds several patents and has worked to establish the
Northwestern Pennsylvania Nanotechnology Consortium whose mission
it is to develop the region as a recognized center for nanotech
business, education and research.
"The nanotechnology program at Gannon is another example of
Gannon's ability to present relevant state of the art programs to
its students," Hultman added.
Hultman earned his undergraduate degree in chemistry from the
University of Wisconsin in 1966 and his Ph.D. in physical chemistry
from Pennsylvania State University in 1975. In his spare time, Carl
can be heard around the Erie region playing jazz, swing, bluegrass,
and country and blues guitar.
