Chemistry Advisory Board member, Jim Damewood, Ph.D, Business Liaison and Principal Research Toxicologist for Haskell Global Centers for Health and Environmental Sciences, was the guest speaker at the School of the Sciences' annual Dell Lecture.  His presentation, “A Chemist’s Perspective on Safety by Design," was well received by a large audience.  At the event, Chemistry junior, Abdallah Malik NaaNaa, was awarded the Dell Scholarship. This scholarship, endowed by Mr. and Mrs. Sam Dell, is awarded to a current junior in the School of the Sciences who exhibits a strong work ethic, exemplary teamwork, and uncompromising integrity.  Congratulations, Malik, on this well-deserved award!

Chemistry junior, Ryan Drazenovic, has found that he loves research.  In the fall, Ryan started his first research experience, working with Dr. Jason Sonnenberg, on computational research.  He is excited to be able to share the results of his research at the American Chemical Society meeting in Denver next month.  In the summer, Ryan will be expanding his research experience by spending time in the lab with Dr. Tim Dwyer, studying a biochemistry project as part of the Summer Science Scholars' Program (S3RP).  In addition, Ryan is already deciding which faculty member he wants to work with in his senior year!  Ryan is a student in our BS/MS program in chemistry/forensic sciences.  He looks forward to combining his love of research with forensics towards a career in forensics research! 

Tracy Robles (BS CHEM 2012, MS, Forensic Science 2013) stopped by with her sister, Sarah (left), who is now a freshman at SU.  Tracy and Sarah are both excited that Sarah is attending SU.  

Tracy is currently a chemist at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing.  In her position, Tracy uses a lot of lab skills and instrumentation that she learned at SU.  She also credits Dr. Tracey Mason's Instrumental Analysis class with giving her the skills she needs to learn new instruments.  One recent project which she found fascinating was looking for counterfeit bills in US currency.  Tracy is engaged to Walter Vargas who also graduated from SU in 2012.

Students and faculty who participated in the Summer Science Scholars Research Program met to hear our students present their overall projects and results.   Their overall summaries and presentations showed how much they learned over the summer, their growth as scientists and how much they loved the summer program!

Biochemistry Senior, Samantha Allen, spent her summer preparing for pharmacy school.  In addition to studying for her PCAT (Pharmacy College Admissions Test), Sam completed an internship at Giant Pharmacy. She had a great experience there and learned so much.

While at the internship, her supervisor allowed her to complete the hands-on experience and learning modules needed to sit for the Pharmacy Technician exam.With her coursework complete and a strong internship experience completed, Sam is well positioned for applying to pharmacy school!
