The Fifteenth Shipley Distinguished Lectureship was presented by Nobel Laureate Richard Schrock (the Frederick G. Keyes Professor of Chemistry at MIT, Massachusetts). In 2005, he received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry with Robert H. Grubbs and Yves Chauvin, for his work in the area of olefin metathesis, an organic synthesis technique. His talks titled "How Basic Research Led to a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2005" and "Catalytic Reduction of Dinitrogen by Molybdenum," were sponsored by the Shipley Family Foundation with support from Clarkson's Center for Advanced Materials Processing (CAMP).
