Dr. Robin Wright inducted into 3M’s Carlton Society

SUNY-ESF congratulates our friend and colleague Dr. Robin Wright, 3M Corporate Scientist, on his induction into the Carlton Society.  This honor was announced at the 51st annual 3M awards ceremony this year.

The Carlton Society is 3M’s technical “Hall of Fame” consisting of top 3M scientists who contribute to the company’s culture of innovation.  Members of this society are nominated by their technical peers and are considered world-class leaders in their field.  Check out this video from 3M about this distinguished society.

With his tremendous expertise in UV-curable coatings, we agree that Dr. Wright is a great addition to the Carlton Society.  Dr. Wright has used that expertise to advise and actively encourage the SUNY-ESF/RadTech Radiation Curing Program in serving and advancing the radiation curing field.  We thank Robin for his leadership and join the 3M and RadTech communities in congratulating him on this most deserved achievement.
