Purdue to dedicate bust of 2010 Nobel laureate

<![CDATA[WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- A bronze sculpture of Purdue University's most recent Nobel laureate will be unveiled this week alongside a sculpture of the school's first Nobel Prize winner. Purdue chemistry professor Ei-Ichi Negishi (ay-EE'-cheh neh-GEE'-shee) will attend Friday's dedication of a bronze bust of his likeness on the south steps of the Wetherill Laboratory of Chemistry. Negishi shared the 2010 Nobel Prize for chemistry with two other researchers for finding new ways to bond carbon atoms together. That process is widely used to make medicines. Negishi's bust will join a bust of the late Herbert C. Brown in a permanent display inside the West Lafayette campus building. Brown was Negishi's mentor and winner of the 1979 Nobel prize for chemistry. Negishi is currently the director of Purdue's Negishi-Brown Institute.
