Junior Biochemistry major Becca Holcomb is working in the cold room with  Professor Tim Dwyer to collect malate dehydrogenase protein fractions as they elute from an affinity chromatography column. They will verify the presence of the protein in the fractions through ultraviolet spectroscopy. Independent research is conducted by all full time faculty in the Chemistry Department, who mentor students every semester and over the summer.

The Chemistry Department welcomed over 25 prospective chemistry and biochemistry majors to Future Stevenson Scholars Day on Saturday February 11th in the new Manning Academic Center. Students participated in some lab-based activities while their parents met the faculty. Pictured is faculty member Dr. Tim Dwyer helping students complete a biochemistry experiment with potato enzymes. Faculty, current students and alumni were on hand to meet all of the guests and happily provided information about the department and programs. 

The chemistry faculty began hosting "Cookies with Chemists" this semester for the Chemistry and Biochemistry majors every other Monday afternoon. Students came for an hour last week to eat cookies, play card games, science hangman and to chat with the faculty in an informal setting. The next "Cookies" event is February 13th in Solve room A at 1:00 PM. Come join us!

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. 

We extend warm wishes to everyone for a Happy Holiday Season!
