#NobelPeacePrize winner @mariaressa '86 has deep roots in New Jersey beyond attending #PrincetonU. She attended Toms River Regional Schools where she learned "you can accomplish anything if you work hard enough."
On October 6, professor David MacMillan learned that he won the #NobelPrize in chemistry. While MacMillan soaked in the news, his colleagues and students shared the importance of his work in organocatalysis and his passionate leadership at @PrincetonChem:

"Close your eyes. Imagine the world as it should be. Now go and make it happen." And that she did. Congrats to #NobelPeacePrize winner and #PrincetonU alumna @mariaressa '86! More of her remarks from Commencement 2020:
Beyond awed to learn that @mariaressa has won a Nobel Peace Prize— my sophomore year, I was one of many wide-eyed students watching her speak at Princeton, and I'm sure not one of us has forgotten her conviction & courage since. A good day to be a Tiger!…

Former @Princeton Ferris Prof of Journalism @mariaressa, the bravest human I know, just won a Nobel Peace Prize. A great day for democracy. This photo from our dinner for her in 2019 says a lot about her: smiling and cheery when her life and liberty were literally in the balance

"I've had a lot of mischievous co-workers over the years so I just assumed it was one of them having a prank." David MacMillan couldn't believe he had been awarded the #NobelPrize in Chemistry - he even bet his co-laureate Ben List a thousand dollars that it wasn't true.

The news conference comes to a close with a standing ovation for Professor MacMillan. #NobelPrize
"Without science, we wouldn’t have anything. Society, ways of being, interacting - we’d have nothing. So, we need science. Once you get to that basic level of understanding, you have to get back to trusting the facts, trusting the truth." -Prof. MacMillan on the value of science
“We don’t think this is being done anywhere else — in the U.S. or the world.” Prof. MacMillan on the #PrincetonU Catalysis Initiative, which brings together #PrincetonU scientists, engineers and scholars. More on PCI:
"#PrincetonU is pretty remarkable, what it does for young people ... It goes the extra mile to bring everyone through – scientists and otherwise. I wouldn’t say that if I didn’t believe it." -Prof. MacMillan on educating younger generations of scientists
"You can learn to be creative. If you talk to the people in @PrincetonChem … they come up with the questions as much as the answers. When you’re surrounded by people like that, you’ll learn to do the same thing." Prof. MacMillan with some advice for younger grad students.
What kind of impact will MacMillan's work and #NobelPrize have on the world? "The impact on the world is that @MacMillan_Lab is going to have to work even harder!"
How does it feel to win the #NobelPrize? "How does it feel? I would say dazed and confused, incredibly excited, incredibly surreal. I'm still trying to feel my feet underneath me right now," says Professor MacMillan.
"There is this world outside of your own world and there are these frontiers that you can be a part of." Professor MacMillan gives credit to his parents and his siblings - particularly his brother, the first in his family to attend college - for inspiring him.
MacMillan begins the conference saying that while he's not normally short of words, he's finding it difficult to describe the meaning of winning the #NobelPrize.
"Ever since David arrived to #PrincetonU in 2006, it's been his mission to make Princeton's chemistry departments one of the best in the world - and clearly, he's leading by example." -Gregory Scholes, @PrincetonChem department chair and professor
President Eisgruber shared, "David MacMillan is a brilliant chemist whose transformative insights and accomplishments have enhanced the power of organic chemistry to benefit human health and address other practical problems" and has built @PrincetonChem to the world's best.
"This is a special occasion, for Professor MacMillan, his family, and his country – both the Americans and the Scots get to cheer today." #PrincetonU Provost Deborah Prentice begins the news conference celebrating Professor MacMillan. #NobelPrize
