Dr. George Lauterbach, who teaches in our General Chemistry sequence often spends the beginning of January in Mexico and enjoys birdwatching. He sent us a picture of a beautiful rose-throated becard he saw in Puerto Vallarta.

Aloha from Hawaii! While we're experiencing winter weather in Baltimore, students from Stevenson's environmental science study away class have been exploring and learning about the island of Oahu. Through hikes and bikes to Diamond Head and Manoa Falls, a fish auction and a traditional Hawaiian Luau, students have gained more knowledge about the Hawaiian culture, flora and fauna. From our department, chemistry senior, Nick Hooke, and biochemistry junior, Morgan McCluskey Wirtz are part of the group.
Biochemistry senior, Ciara Faupel, completed her capstone in the Nathan Schnaper Intern Program in Translational Research at the University of Maryland. She presented her work at the fall Fine School of the Sciences poster session. She is shown here with Dr. Ellen Roskes, department chair.
Andrew McGregor (BS Chem '15, MS Forensic Science '16) was excited to share with us that his thesis research will be published in the Journal of Forensic Sciences this year! His paper is titled, "Morphological Features of Regurgitate and Defecatory Stains Deposited by Five Species of Necrophagous Flies Are Influenced by Adult Diets and Body Size." Congratulations, Andrew!
Warmest congratulations to Emily Wolf on her graduation with a BS in Biochemistry in December and on her receiving the John Mitchell Graduation Award. Emily was given this award because of her excellent academic record and her enthusiasm in helping others- she volunteers regularly as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) with the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Company and she has provided basic healthcare for impoverished families in Costa Rica. Congratulations, Emily!
