"In these challenging and divided times, there is much we can learn from Professor Banerjee’s unique ability to mentor students from vastly different backgrounds and his forthright approach to building trust, communicating the opportunities made available by science, and turning diversity into strength. An entire generation of students at the University at Buffalo and Texas A&M have been enriched by his enthusiastic and inspirational engagement of undergraduates, his most remarkable ability to engage students in thoughtful discussions and meaningful research, the nurturing and inclusive environment that he fosters in his research laboratory and his classroom, his understated but profoundly empathetic mentoring, his infectious good cheer and dedication, and his lifelong commitment to mentoring relationships."
Dr. Marcetta Y. Darensbourg, Texas A&M Distinguished Professor of Chemistry
