Oswego alumni collaborated with 2010 Nobel winner

Augustine Silveira, distinguished teaching professor emeritus of chemistry at SUNY Oswego, in the 1970s began a 20-plus-year research collaboration with one of the winners of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, Dr. Ei-ichi Negishi. He is pictured with students during the era of the collaboration.

“Not everybody gets to say that they worked with a Nobel Prize winner,” said Michael Plante M ’75. He is one of more than a dozen chemistry students of Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus Augustine Silveira from the 1970s to 1990s who can say just that.
