Professor George “Bob” Pettit Fellowship Endowment

The School of Molecular Sciences announces a fellowship to honor the memory of one of its most distinguished faculty members, Dr. George (Bob) Pettit. Bob was a pioneer and leader in the development of anti0cancer drugs derived from marine animals and other natural sources. Bob’s reputation for excellence in the organic chemistry of natural products helped put the original ASU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry on the map.

A fellowship in Bob’s name will support graduate students in the School or Molecular Sciences whose studies relate to cancer research. Please consider honoring Dr. Pettit by making a gift to the George “Bob” Pettit Endowed Fellowship. All donations are tax deductible and will help create a legacy in Dr. Pettit’s name.
