Dartmouth College

Dartmouth College on Tuesday celebrated the awarding of this year’s Nobel Prize in Chemistry to Frances Arnold.

Arnold, known for her groundbreaking work on the evolution of enzymes, was recognized by Dartmouth with an honorary degree last year.

At the time, she delivered a powerful, personal address to graduating students at the college’s Thayer School of Engineering.

A prominent health policy expert at Dartmouth College resigned after being accused of plagiarizing the work of other professors for a paper published in a prestigious journal.

H. Gilbert Welch sent an email to colleagues Thursday saying he was saddened to resign. He maintained that the dispute was over authorship, not the validity of the work.

He also said he stepped down over the school's demands that he could remain at the school only if he stopped teaching and that one of the complainants be made a co-author on the disputed paper.
