Chemistry faculty member Dr. Jeremy Burkett and Science writing instructor Dr. Kerry Spencer came together to explain the Alchemy in Frankenstein during a science-meets-literature collaborative event between Schools at Stevenson last month.  Participants also heard about the history of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, listened to recitations from creative writing students, ate cake and watched movies. 

The annual Chemistry Magic Show was performed by the American Chemistry Society Student Club. There were lots of cool experiments, including fun with liquid nitrogen, boo-bubbles and elephant's toothpaste. The student presenters did an awesome job. In case you missed it, there will be an encore performance during the Maryland STEM festival this Friday November 9th in MAC S136 from 2-3 PM.

The chemistry and biochemistry first year students completed a day of service known at SU as Mustangs Make a Difference Day. The service projects conducted by the students were an education and donor drive for Be the Match, an organization that matches bone and stem cell donors with needy patients, and Austism Awareness in conjunction with the Trellis School, a private school that provides therapeutic interventions for children with autism. Both worthwhile causes!  

Biochemistry alum (BS'18) Angelica Lackey recently attended the 6th Global Symposium on Ketogenic Therapies for Neurological Disorders in Jeju, Korea.  There she learned about the "individualization of ketogenic therapies (leaning toward personalized medicine), the gut-brain-microbiome relationship and influence on diet efficacy/seizure control, use of the diet for status epilepticus (a dangerous condition in which someone seizes continuously without recovering consciousness), and evidence proposing indications for the diet in other neurological disorders (largely solid tumors and autism)."

She was inspired by "the eager and gracious collaboration between diet centers and amongst countries; also the enthusiasm for basic, translation, and clinical research and application of ketogenic therapies for refractory disease types and as adjuvant therapy to enhance efficacy and overall standard of care was invigorating and inspirational (to say the least)"

Angelica adds that she will  continue to pursue this field and believes that her success "thus far largely stems from the education and support I received from SU.  She adds that her success can speak to the potential of SU SOS’s Capstone experience and independent research projects."
