Dr. Michelle Ivey was awarded an SU Faculty Development Research Grant at the recent Faculty Recognition Dinner.  Dr. Ivey plans to use the award to continue her ongoing project- writing a book, with co-author Jason Sonnenberg, on integrating computational chemistry into an undergraduate curriculum.  Dr. Ivey presented her ideas and some of the experiments at the ACS meeting in Denver in March.  During the course of this project, Dr. Ivey has included students in testing the experiments and improving them.  

Prospective students visited campus on Saturday to learn about our science and math programs at SU.  They were given the opportunity to participate in a laboratory experience, learning how potato enzymes work using spectroscopic techniques, or participating in a fingerprinting exercise; to learn about the department, the faculty, and the exciting programs and courses we offer; and to visit a fair with tables showcasing our clubs, our alumni and our majors.  Students and their parents had a chance to ask questions and see what the School of the Sciences at SU is all about!  

To celebrate the holidays, Missy Craig and Kim Tucker decorated the SOS department chairs' office!  The decorations won an award at the annual Holiday Party.  Best wishes for a Happy Holiday Season from the Chemistry Department!

This semester, two students are working with Dr. Dawn Ward on her ongoing research project using organic chemistry techniques to synthesize inhibitors of hepatitis C. In the picture above, Dr. Ward assists biochemistry junior, Robert Chen, as he prepares for a synthetic reaction. Chemistry junior, Malik Naanaa, analyzes his technique.
