MELBOURNE, FLA.—Alumnus and Trustee Jonathan B. Zung, Ph.D., has established The Martin Zung Memorial Chemistry Endowment Fund at Florida Institute of Technology in memory of his late father Martin Zung. Jonathan Zung received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the university and his doctoral degree in analytical chemistry from Emory University.
