REMEMBERING NED HEINDEL

Our November 9th Section Meeting at Lehigh University attracted 50 LVACS members to share their love of chemistry and their recollections of former ACS President and Emeritus Professor of Chemistry, Lehigh University, Ned Heindel, PhD., who died June 27th at age 85. After a social hour and dinner at the Gander Room, we proceeded to Neville Hall for extemporaneous reminiscences of Ned followed by the Inaugural Ned Heindel Memorial Lecture, "Design and Development of Vasopressin V1a Antagonists Derived from a Unique Azetidinone Platform," delivered by two long-time colleagues and collaborators, Neal Simon, Professor of Neuroscience, Lehigh University and Christophe Guillon, Principal Research Scientist, Azevan Pharmaceuticals Inc. We also celebrated yet another of our 2023 student award winners, Tyler Roberts of Lafayette College, winner of the Organic Chemistry Scholarship, henceforth to be known as the Ned Heindel Scholarship in Organic Chemistry. We are all looking forward to future Heindel Lectures, jointly sponsored by LVACS and Lehigh University, about which more information will be forthcoming on this site and in the Octagon Newsletter.
