Prof. Anthony Cheetham was awarded The AIC Chemical Pioneer Award for his pioneering contributions to the synthesis and characterization of novel inorganic and hybrid materials (open-framework hybrids) and their applications in a variety of areas, including optoelectronics, magnetism and separation. Prof. Cheetham is the Goldsmiths' Professor of Materials Science at the University of Cambridge and the Treasurer and Vice-President of the Royal Society.
Prof. Cheetham has a long and distinguished career on the faculty of such prestigious institutions as Oxford and the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB). He took up the directorship of the UCSB’s new Materials Research Laboratory, which he led for 12 years. He became Director of the newly created International Center for Materials Research at UCSB before moving to Cambridge in 2007.
Prof. Cheetham is a Fellow of the Leopoldina, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and several other academies. He has received numerous awards for his work in the field of materials chemistry, including a Chaire Blaise Pascal, Paris (1997–1999), the Sômiya Award of the IUMRS (2004), and the Platinum Medal of the IOM3 (2011). He holds honorary doctorates from several universities.

Dr. Ann Valentine was awarded The AIC Chemical Pioneer Award for her outstanding contributions towards advancing the science of chemistry and impacting the chemical profession. She is an Associate Professor at Temple University and currently serves as Vice-Chair of the Department of Chemistry.
Previously, Prof. Valentine had risen to the rank of Associate Professor in the Chemistry Department at Yale University. She served as a mentor in the Retention and Success Initiative through the Temple Teaching and Learning Center, focusing on increasing students' achievement in traditionally high-attrition courses across the university. She has embraced outreach and mentorship roles, including through the Philadelphia Area Girls Enjoying Science (PAGES) program and the Temple Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) program.

Dr. Robert Langer was awarded The AIC Chemical Pioneer Award for his dedication to improving medical devices and materials for the sustenance of health. He has had a monumental impact on health and longevity of people worldwide. His distinguished career has earned him the rank of David H. Koch Institute Professor at his Alma matter, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Institute Professor is M.I.T.'s highest faculty honor.
Dr. Langer has served as a member of the United States Food and Drug Administration's SCIENCE Board and as its Chairman. He has received over 210 major awards, including the 2006 United States National Medal of Science, the Charles Stark Draper Prize (considered to be the equivalent of the Nobel Prize for engineers), the 2008 Millennium Prize, and the 2012 Priestly Medal. He is the most cited engineer in history.
